GP100 was my very first gun. It’s a classic.
Great shooter indeed. Mines the blued version with 6 inch barrel.
A good, reliable reviewer.
I sold my Python because my GP100 did the same job for less.
Mines a 6” stainless steel.
Just to be different, my GP100 is a 5 inch 44 special.
I don’t have one.
It’s ok. Did you know that every GP owner did not have one in the past
What is it for???
What caliber of pellets does it shoot. .177 or .22? Does it look like a real gun???
I had a 686. It was a fine gun, but the red insert front drove me nuts. It washed out indoors (and that's where the money is, club shoots and pins.) It was pinned, and no drop-in replacements exist, every one needs fitting.
And contrary to what we hear, the DA trigger pull was heavier than on the Ruger (both used revolvers.) Traded it for a GP with interchangeable front sights.
I see them for sale here regularly, they are a nice revolver. The police used to carry the Ruger Security-Six 6-shot revolver. What price is a new one in America. ?
Kinda thought it would be.
A new GP100 depending on trim (stainless vs blued, barrel lenght etc ) will usually go $660-$700 retail. 670 ish online 730+ ish in a Brick and Mortar store. But when u buy int he B&M store it includes the NCIS background check which is additional when buying online ( since it has to go to a FFL who will then charge the you background check fee)
Example from a large online (discountish) store in the most common configuration ( 4.25 inch barrel, stainless, 6 shooter, Hogue rubber grips, adj. sights)
You can probably find 'em cheaper somewhere but this is pretty fair and normal price.
Special Editions that come out every once in a while will be more.
I used to own a special Royal Phoenix GP100 (one of only 589 made)..which I bought used for $1000 and later sold for $1100 used.
I sold it because it was too beautiful to shoot so I never shot it...
The local used market on GP100 is lively, but they hold their value well because they are basically forever guns that never wear out (well hardly ever)..
Used ones from Private party still commonly go for $500-600 in this configuration.
In a store used from $560-$650
Blued ones can be had for less especially if the blueing has worn a bit (which it often does for folks who carry often).
There is a Match Champion version that is substantially more:
Anyone saw how Colt advertises the New Python? "30% more material under the rear sight." The GP has always had that mound under the rear sight, the OP screenshot shows it clearly. Looks to me Colt actually copied a Ruger design feature.
