Good move. Post pictures when you get it. I love my GP 100. She's a workhorse and has never let me down.

Provided it hasn't been abused.....and I think it would be hard to abuse a GP 100, this revolver is still a young pup.

Just to give you all an update, finally got the call to come pick it up! I'll post a range report after I take her out this weekend.

Love mine. Bought it used on Christmas eve for 250. It's a 98 I believe. Looks like it's had less than 1000rds. Stole it

A little bit of bright green nail polish and it was 100 times better for me. I bought mine October 2011 and I paid a little under $600. Mine is the four inch barrel.
Can you post a pic of your sights?

Nice! You got the better-looking grips. Mine came with the big squishy hogue grips that i love for their comfort, but a kind fellow forumite sold me a set of the nice-looking grips for non-volume use.

There was a guy selling various wood insets to people unsatisfied with the stockers. (can't remember where)
