SP 101 in .327 mag

Since I'm out here at GUNSITE, I'm finalyy getting around to running a bunch of ammo through a Ruger .327...surprisingly little recoil (of course it's s heavy little gun)...full report on the podcast...

Sticking around for Defensive Revolver next week?

Sure wish ruger would put that out in a single action. If it won't work in the single six size frame then the Blackhawk anniversary sized frame. A convertible in .327mag/.32-20 would be double sweet.
Ruger we're waiting.

Agree with Anonymous. While it's not the worst idea as a cartridge for small defensive six-shooters, the .327 Mag really calls out for use as a field cartridge in longer barreled single and double actions.

If Federal/ATK doesn't like the obvious .32-20 comparison, then call it "The Tokarev of sixguns!"

I'd buy the gun... if I could it in a snubbie.

How about an 8 shot version built on a Super Blackhawk frame?

I'd buy two!

Last word I read on Rugerforum.com was Ruger has suspended 327 production because of cylinder issues. Has production resumed and the problems corrected? It appears the 327 was DOA.

I thought the cylinder issue was only on some early models and was fixed? Would be interested to know.

The big drawback to this is that I'm trying to find a 3" SP101 in .357 and am on the waiting list with a bunch of others in my small town. It's actually easier to find an LCP in town than an SP101 in .357 right now.

I have said it before and I will say it again. Put that puppy in a five inch bisley handled single action and I would be one VERY happy camper.

In my way of thinking it would really fit the bill for my knocking around the farm side arm.

Heres to wishin'

Nawww! You're all wrong! J-framing the .327 is the way to go! And that Ruger SP101 is built like a boat anchor.

Ya know, Charter arms makes several revolvers in .327, including a 2.2" snubnose...

I've been hoping for a breakout in the ammunition, I'd like to have one.

Lawrence said...

The ammo, at least that which I've seen is quite costly.

I contemplated one of those for my mother, who has arthritis...however $22 a box for ammo..I dont think so.

You have to be able to afford to practice.

Two ways I would go with that cartridge...

Either a K-frame size revolver, chambered for maybe eight shots of .327

Or a TRULY small 5-shot. No, I'm not talking a J-frame with a different cylinder; I'm talking a snubby sized specificaly to take five shots of .327.
