    What gun are we talking about here, 17 and 18, I looked back in the thread and don't see it mentioned. Maybe I'm losing it.

    I was comparing my new Ruger SP101 to my S&W Model 18.

    Not that you aren't losing it...

    The 101 weighs about 9% less than the 18, 33.0 oz vs. 36.1.

    Your 18 is gorgeous (not that the SP isnít). I was wondering what was off about the ejector rod, then realized the knurled end was camouflaged into the background fabric

    Ha, yes it does look "missing." The side plate is reflecting the white ceiling of the room, too; it's not all dirty.

    It looks in perfect condition. I had a 13 plated and a 19 blued a few weeks back. Old coworker brought them by for a thorough cleaning. Apparently a friend of a friends deal. They were rumored to be up for sale and he was gonna try and buy. I told him I'd take any that he didn't buy. Haven't heard anything back yet.

    Meh, not perfect. It's a '73 so it's been around the block. But it's the most accurate .22 I have; that and my Ruger Mark II. I have high hopes for the 101. The timing seems to be perfect and a previous owner seems to have slicked it up and lightened the trigger. Why they no longer wanted it, I can't imagine.

    I sold my 19 a few years ago cheap and kick myself for it now. It was a State Troopers gun from Massachusetts. He got it direct from S@W he patrolled out in the area of the factory. I sold it for $800.
