I own the 6" SS, bought several years back, got the Hogue grips. When I started buying guns, I literally dragged my mom the the gun shop to buy a GP100 25 years ago. First gun I ever bought myself (with help). My original had those beautiful two tone wood/rubber grips in 6" SS. You were lucky to find those grips! I unfortunately had a gun lapse for a couple years and sold it. Then bought the one I have today. Then with a stroke of luck I went after the new Wiley Clapp GP100. Yep, I got one, just two months ago. Pure luck, but that Wiley Clapp is a real beauty, and has those original wood/rubber grips I love. Man, what gun. Either way the GP100 is your workhorse for life, congrats!

After months of research, I just picked up the 4" GP100 as my first firearm. Thought I was going to get the S&W 686, but fell in love with the GP at the range. Every gun enthusiast I talk to says I made a great choice for first gun. Plus, I hear that if for some reason it stops firing, you can use is as a boat anchor! hahah. Tough, dependable, super accurate.

I've been looking for a nice 686 for awhile now and saw a clean 6" GP yesterday at a LGS. Damn nice revolver, I think I might bring it home soon!
