I own a 4' GP100 and absolutely love it. They will hold up well to a constant diet of heavy .357 loads. I've noticed the trigger isn't as smooth as my S&W's, but they're built like a bank vault.

You can't go wrong with the Ruger GP100. I've never owned one but have shot a few.I have a couple of the old Security Sixes and have held up well over the last 25 years or so.The GP's are real strong,handle constant diet of 357 loads as chorst said. Backed by Ruger's great warranty.The triggers could use some improvement,allot of times will work in with shooting.

I think the GP 100 is an excellent revolver and very strong. My 4" stainless was stolen in a burglary several years ago, but my dad has a 4" SS model and my brother a 6". I have shot them all extensively and they are an excellent gun and very durable. Good luck.

Default update

bought a stainles 6 inch gp 100 n i box and so far i realy like this baby, trigger right out of the box pretty darn smooth. so far it will handle any thing ive put through it,but some of us cant leave well enough alone so im smoothing the pull tab a tad bit more and have already erased that funky warning there so damned proud of . the finish is like brushed stainless so i used my belt grinder with a used up belt and it hardly removed any material but the light stamping is gone, finished with scotchbright still looks new but clean

I own an old Stainless Ruger Security Six that still looks new. My favorite revolver. Wish they didnt discontinue them. Great shooting.

Default gp100

Any ruger revolver and gp100 in particular is the strongest revolver in it's class on market. I'm a huge fan of blackhawk/super blackhawk/redhawk models. A ruger will keep going strong long after other revolvers shoot loose,lose timing,or crack at forcing cone. The ONLY exceptions are freedom arms(pricey) and s&w X frame.
