    Years back, I bought an SP-101 from a guy that said it was a .22wmr
    When I got it, it shot .22wmr round alright, but took a act of Congress to eject the spent Cases
    Well, I could see why this guy didn't want it
    Looked and looked and finally found a .22lr Cylinder and fit it to the Frame
    Shoots .22lrs GREAT .... but I was always thinking of "Why won't the wmr Cases eject ?"
    Talked to a few guys and sent it off to Sportsman's Gunsmith Shop, here in Salt Lake
    They polished the wmr Cylinder Chambers and reshaped the Forcing Cone
    Now it fire and ejects on all cylinders, and I call it my "Super" SP-101
    Well, as it turns out; this SP-101 is one of only three that came out of the Ruger Factory as a .22 wmr

    Well, I am happy the Revolver works, and it works great, on all 12 Chambers
    But I am bummed that I have torched its history
    Here's a few pics of it:
