I just picked up a GP 100 4.2" 357 SS Barrel at Alquist Arms in Turlock CA and they had a 6" SS and a 6" Blued, and that was last Thursday, but who knows they might have sold them by now, I love my GP 100, it's so cool

I was lucky enough to shoot a s&w 686 .357 mag the other day, and absolutely fell in love with it. I was just about to buy an Ar15, but now I'm putting that off to get the .357 mag. However I may go with the gp100 to save a few bucks I've the 686.

It was a long time ago but I had a 686 and my bud had a GP 100. We shot them side by side. The SW had a better trigger but accuracy was the same in Single Action.

They both had 6" barrels so balance wasn't a strong point in either direction. W love to test again w 4" variety.

You really can't go wrong with either of those revolvers. I am a Ruger addict but I will most definitely be adding S&W's to my accumulation. I usually buy used and the Rugers are usually less expensive than the S&W's and are of comparable quality.
