Tried putting my new grips on and the pin wouldn't line up. Finally got it lined up. It was a little awkward. Went to squeeze the grips together and chipped off the back of right top grip. This is common for new ruger sp101 is what the guy at Badger told me. Badger is going to replace my grips for me. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. What I feel bad about is that he is losing money doing this because Ruger on the sp101 switched their handles up a bit. Why change something that isn't broken.
