my sp101 does the same little noise,
its my first wheel to make a noise like that but Its a Ruger.

p.s My Used Ruger is better than my new Judge public Defender.

Spittinfire has most likely nailed it. Its normal on the GP100's and the SP101 to have a little rattle from the transfer bar, It happens on both of mine and has no effect on function.

I assume this sound is generated when you shake the revolver?

Unless you are seeing the rod moving it's more likely the transfer bar.

You can't access the barrel where it 'starts', on a revolver. That's the forcing cone and by definition, it's a cone.

you must have a helluva camera there cane those are some good closeups.

my brother has a gp100 and its a damn rugged gun. and it does have a small rattle. you could prolly nail a house frame together with one and still shoot like nothing happened.

Default To the op:

The GP100 is a very durable and reliable gun. What you are hearing is most likely what has been previously stated, the transfer bar, however if there IS something wrong with the firearm, DO NOT attempt to work on it yourself


Give Ruger a call if it comes to that.
