What a difference shoes can make!
Supposed to be rosewood but I've found this to be a very relative term. I got them on ebay surprised from a maker in Thailand. I know I know, but I didn't have upwards of $100 for grips + S&H. He has a very good rating and some very nice grips available, though SP101 grips seem to be a bit rare.

goes by the seller name: penguin-orchid-shop

Nice set of grips there.  I've seen some of this guys' grips on ebay and they look great.  He uses some nice woods on them.  I'm waiting for a set of Anaconda grips to come up and I'll grab them.

I bought a pair off him a few years back for a Smith, they were pretty

nice and the price was killer. He was under a different sellers name back then

and end up with some bad feedback for slow shipping, It may have been out of

his control being how he sells from across the globe.

 

I not often, but occasionally, make an Internet buy across the seas and

figure at a minimum three weeks for shipping, some people figure

they should have it in a week. screwy

I like the Rugers, and they can be made real purty with just a little effort. I'd love to find me a 101 for ccw, but the price is a li'l steep. I'll probably keep looking for a snub barrel for my 15-2 instead.

Wouldn't it be great if all wars could be fought just by the a-holes who started them?

Sharp looking rosewood grips there on that Ruger SP101!

 

I have a SP101 too, and for sure the grips really do make all the difference

in the world on the gun, especially when it comes to managing recoil with full

house .357 magnum loads.

 

I had a pair of Eagle ebony wood Secret Service Grips on my SP101.

 

 Unfortunately for me, I managed to crack the ebony wood

grip panels from the recoil of shooting a full box of full house

.357 magnum rounds through my little snub nose revolver.

I was pretty disgusted, and a little disappointed about that,

as the grips were really sharp looking, and they concealed

quite nice.

 

I have since bobbed the hammer on it, and after a really

nice trigger job, had mine converted to DAO.

 

I probably should have kept the broken grips panels, or tried

sending them back or something. Instead I just threw them away.

I briefly considered buying another pair just for carrying,

but the whole idea of doing that rubbed me the wrong way.

Now mine simply wears a pair of rubber Hogue grips full time.

They do give me a little bit more to hang onto however.

The rubber ones soak up recoil nicely. Sadly, they also stick out,

and stick to everything, oh well.

 

I hope your Rosewood grips last longer than my Eagle Secret Service

ebony grips did on my SP101, because they really do look great.

I too purchased a set of grips for my SP101 from this same seller

It was about 18 months ago, took about two weeks to arrive. They

were absolutely gorgeous, but they didn't fit. Must have been his 1st pair for the SP101. He refunded all my money and told me to keep the grips. I still have them and tried them on all different guns without any luck.I would buy from this seller again, if I could get a pair half as nice as yours.

Nice looking like Ruger.  I have one of the older SP101's in 22LR.

Those older SP101's in .22lr don't come around very often.  Ruger just reintroduced the .22lr SP101 in a 4.2 in. light brl. but they're backlogged at most of the distributors at this point.
