Default Picture Perfect

Beautiful guns, to be sure. Ever had any gunsmithing done to them? I've read allot of guys change springs to improve trigger action/pull. I haven't even shot mine yet, but, I'm always interested in improvements. Will probably look at laser (Crimson Trace?) sights/grips as well. Thanks for the cool pix.........John

I've owned a GP100, blued, 6" barrel since 1989 and love it. Target practice and hunting both. Great revolver, solid, strong, reliable and unrelentless. Have hunted deer with it when I couldn't swing my 30-06 barrel through the branches. Always have it holsterd on my left hip so it's easy to remove with my right hand. Tree stand and at 68 yards, dropped a 12 pointer where he stood with 180 gr JHP. Amazing. I have open sights and have practiced at 100 yards with a lower gr solid. Usually use a bench rest (ie: gear bag) for stabilization and have consistently kept shouts inside a frisbee diameter. Now freestanding is a little wider at 100 yards, but I've never had anything over 68 yards that my 30-06 wouldn't deliver on.

Speaking strictly of the action/trigger, do they similar to the SP101 out of the box?

I bought the GP100 blued 4" as my Christmas present to myself and I love it. I have shot both 38 specials and 357 Mags with it with out any problems. I almost got a Taurus and am sure glad I didn't

I own a Stainless with a 4" barrel. I am a BIG fan of Rugers and the GP-100 is one of my favorite revolvers. I can shoot 2-3 boxes of ammo with .38 special or .357 Magnum at a range session with little to no fatigue.
I also have a SS Security Six w/4" barrel, a .44 Magnum SS Redhawk w/7.5" barrel and a .45 Colt Blued Blackhawk w/7.5" barrel.
Best of luck with your new addition. I know you will enjoy it.

Recently bought myself a stainless 4" GP100 and it's easily already one of my favorite guns. Also a beauty to look at when she's all clean

Default Got one too

I've had my GP 100 for a year now. I love the Hornady XTP 125 grainers over 22 grains of H 110. I got the 6 inch in stainless. When I went to sight it in fresh out of the box, I rested the barrel in a little "V" rest sand bag. Using just the factory sights I drilled a hole dead center at 13 yards. The satisfaction began to rise up inside me knowing I made a great choice. Nice report and muzzle flash too. It feels powerful. I like a loud report, if I wanted quiet, I would get a bow.

I got a GP100 a couple of days ago and finally got to shoot it today. It was a blast! 38s felt like nothing and hot 158gr 357s were comfortable to shoot all day. 158 Deep Curls over 16.4gr of H110 has the 2011 deer season already in it's sights.

Default GP100 story

I just got my first one, WOW! Mine is a 6 inch stainless model. Today
April 12 2011 was a milestone for me because I was shooting accurately
at 50 yards with a varity of ammo including wad-cutters. I had a good
shooting partner with me who was calling the my shots. He also made
the sights adjustments on the gun. Dick





Are there any other GP100 fans out here?? I am working my way through my second one. The first one I bought was back in 85, 4" blued with combat grips. My new one is a 4" stainless. They both offer flawless performance. I have put about every type of round made through them including some really hot +p, never had a issue.

Default Sighting in Gun

Congrats. on your new GP100. I purchased a new stainless 4" Gp100 in Feb and have taken it shooting once so far (put 100 rounds through it). My gun shot a little to the left - how was yours? I have never sighted a gun before and if you know the details on doing this, I would be interested to hear how to do it. Also, I was told that different brands of ammo have different characteristics - is it necessary to sight the gun for each brand (or stay with one brand/type?)?

John
