Thread: Clapp Ruger SP101!

  1. #1

    Clapp Ruger SP101!

    I've kind of wanted one of these ever since I picked up a used blued Clapp GP100 a couple years ago. Unlike the standard SP101 that has sights out of the 19th Century, the Clapp has a cute little version of the Novak. Front is a dovetail gold bead.

    Otherwise I don't know if there's much difference in the Clapp and the standard SP. I guess the only thing I'd change is the finish. I'd probably do a bead blasted stainless finish rather than the semi rough surface polish that's on the gun now. Maybe a bobbed hammer would be a nice feature too. Neither is probably too hard to accomplish and would help further offset this from a stock SP101.

    Overall, nothing earth shattering. Just kind of a nice example of a modern all steel pocket blaster.

    I was wondering about that.

    Sights and the “black powder cut” chamfer at the front of the cylinder. Notice it isn’t square?

    I thought the chamfered cylinder was a standard configuration now, no?

    I agree that a spurless hammer would be an improvement. I wish that revolver makers would have used sights that nice when revolvers were more commonly used for serious purposes.

    Midwest. Far Upper Midwest whever I get the chance
    Enjoy!

    That’s been pretty much my daily carry for the past 3 years. I added a shim kit and Pachmayr boot grips. I use the GoldDot 135gr +P (23921). Holster is the rattiest, most sweat stained Galco Tuck imaginable. Magnums not all that bad, but prefer the .38s

    Those WC's are nice looking guns. I wish every fixed-sighted revolver had dovetailed sights as an option.
    Does anyone like pineapple on their pizza guns?

    I don't see anything on the Shop Ruger webstore. I'll call tomorrow and see if they might sell me one.
