    I am working on a comparison of a 2.25-inch barreled SP-101 chambered in .38 Special and the Colt Cobra. I configured the SP-101 with the equivalent Hogue grips that are OEM with the Cobra to make this as close as equal to start. The sights are a bit different as the Ruger has a XS Big Dot, and the Colt has the OEM fiber optic. Now I just need the weather to cooperate as we have been vacillating between downpours and oppressive heat; that makes for less than pleasant shooting on my backyard range.

    The SP-101 is from 1989 (first year of production) and has the original short frame. That frame was used later for the first "125-grain ONLY" .357 Magnum guns and was superseded by the "X" frame with the longer cylinder and appropriate cylinder window in the frame. As such, it is as close as a SP-101 can be to the Cobra.

    Very interested in your comparison test. One thing I like about the Colt Cobra is their grip, Hogue or VZ. Anticipating your updates.
