Should be picking this one up at my FFL late this week or early next week. Comes with the Occidental IWB shown in the pics. Can't wait to get this to the range and put it to some good CC use. :cool:

I have the SP101 2 1/4 inch barrel, DAO, with Secret Service Stocks that I did m own action work and I can tell you that configuration will do very well on the street.

So no doubt this Gemini Custom SP101 above is an excellent piece!!!

The 2-1/4" was the only revolver I ever owned. Pardon my ignorance, but what was done to it, other than no hammer?

NICE!!
Gemini Customs has long been on my list of "wants"...
I have had an SP101..nothing special...sharp edges and poor trigger...
but Marc can make them a whole 'nother animal!

When you get it...post more pics!

I just picked up one last month. You will be very impressed with Gemini's work. Mine is a 3.5" in .327 mag. It doesn't have the boot grip, but I am looking at getting one.

Trigger job, dehorned, crowned barrel, gold bead front sight, cylinder brought into spec and trued, grips and bead blasted to a matte finish are some of the things that I can name off the top of my head. I'll get the paperwork with all of the specs listed later on. :cool:

Spill the beans Berto. What do you know about it that I might want to know?

Berto

It can handle a double charge, mostly.









It's probably OK now.

Berto,

What's the deal with the revolver Joe just paid for?

It doesn't sound good. :dunno:

Yeah, I'd like to know what Berto "knows" myself. I just PM'd the guy I bought it from, from here BTW, the link to this thread, for him to chime in on, if he feels the need to. I hope for Berto's sake, that he know's "the truth" on this gun, as he's done a pretty good job of slandering the seller on a public forum, if it's not a fact that this particular gun has had some serious issues, but may be "probably OK now".

Thanks Joe.

I'm just getting started. If everything goes as planned, this may be my best year yet adding to my collection.

I didn't pick up much at all in 2011, but I'm back. :cool:

I am the seller of the sp101. Berto, I believe you must have the gun confused with another. It has been mine from the day I purchased it, sent it to Marc at Gemini, and came back. It has never left my possession; double charge? the closest it has come to a full power load is double tap barnes lead free loads. Just saying.

Well that's good to know.

I'm sure Joe is very relieved to hear. I'm not sure why Berto would post that sort of thing publicly without knowing for sure. :headscratch:

No clue. I'm sure somewhere a sp101 with black badger grips, Gemini version or not, has taken some double charges and someone has screamed it from a mountain top, but it wasn't me and I'm the sole owner of the gun.

Thanks. :cool: I have 100% confidence, that I am getting a top notch gun in this deal. I will however, take certain people's, very uncalled for and unsubstantiated comments, with a HUGE grain of salt from here on out. :upeyes:

I would have taken it seriously too if I had just sent a bunch of money to an unknown seller.

Congrat's. I've been wanting to send Marc a 3" SP101 for a while now.

Here's my response per your PM on What's the story"

Oh jezus, I'm kidding. Sorry.

I just meant I thought I had seen that gun before pictured on the forum. I've never touched it, I promise.

I'm sure it's everything the seller advertised, there's a few Gemini custom sp's that have been in discussions here and the snubby forum IIRC, I thought about sending my 3" out to him.


How, from that, we arrive at *this*
I don't know.
But again, I'm sorry. I had no idea this would fly right over his head.:dunno:

Berto

Okay. How about after you asked me for clarification and I replied as I did in the above mentioned PM?
I shouldn't have said what I said, it was an attempt at comraderie/humor....not a pissing match. My bad.:wavey:

07-25-2012, 21:49
No pissing matches going on here berto. Just your stupidity and immaturity. Go stir the pot elsewhere. Your "humor" wasn't appreciated too much here. Thanks for ruining a good thread about a new gun I'm pretty excited about getting. :wavey: And if you want to start posting my PM's, there's a pretty good one sitting in your in box right now.

If you reaeeaalllly honestly believe that, I'm sorry.
I hope you enjoy the new gun.
I'll go stir the pot with my immaturity etc somewhere now.
Thanks for the clarification on pissing matches.:upeyes:
