I have a snubnose SP101 in .357 mag. I have been tossing around the idea of having the hammer bobbed on it. Does anyone around here have experience with this? Could I just have a hammer put in mine from one of the dao models or is the trigger group different. If anyone has one that they have bobbed the hammer on, pics would be appreciated. Thanks!

is it a functional thing, or a personal prefence on looks?

I think the SP101 looks better with a hammer, but that's just me. tactically, I could see reducing snag by bobbing it though.

Well I thought about carrying it as a backup to my duty gun & I just wanted to reduce the risk of a snag. I was just debating on ordering a new hammer or just cutting the hammer spur off. I'm sure they would be about the same price...the gunsmiths around here are proud of their work...

Here's one that I did several years ago. Cut the hammer spur and polished everything. Also removed the hammer and took off the full cock notch making it a true DAO. I don't think you can buy any components of the trigger group from Ruger.

Personally, I wouldn't do it. I very deliberately chose an SP-101 with a hammer spur. Why? Because of the possibility of needing to make accurate 15 or 25 yard shots with this small-size pistol.

(Not every engagement is a close quarters engagement. If the other guy is firing on you from 20 yards away then that's the distance you're going to have to reply from!)

May I be so bold as to suggest you keep this gun the way it is and buy a hammer-less gun? Who can't use another gun anyway?

And the debate rages on!!! The main drawback to hammer-less revolvers is they can only be fired in double action mode which requires long heavy trigger pull. The main benefit to the hammer-less revolvers is that there is no hammer spur to snag on your clothing if you need to draw it quickly. Which can you live with? Me? I need both. :)
