One Simple Question

17 Feb

Let’s see how Ruger responds to this question.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to inquire if you have considered/are considering chambering the SP101 for the .44 Special cartridge? Currently, there is only one small framed revolver on the market chambered for the .44 Spcl, the Charter Arms Bulldog.

With Ruger’s recent commitment to the Concealed Carry market (with the SP101, LCP and LCR), an SP101 chambered in .44 Spcl would fill a much needed niche for those of us who want big bore goodness in a small framed revolver.

Thank you.

    I think it would be a good idea. I have a 44 special snubbie made by Taurus. Too bad they discontinued them a while back, because I think they would do fairly well right now.

    The .44 Special just intrigues me as a cartridge. I feel that it is largely under-appreciated, a victim of the Magnum Era.

    I quite lit the 44 special; I also shoot it a lot in my Redhawk and my Super Blackhawk. Out of the Redhawk it is a mild cartridge to shoot, yet packs as good a punch as a 45ACP or Long Colt.

    “Like” not “lit”.
