FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The GP100 is a line of double-action/single-action, 5-shot (.44 Special), 6-shot (.357 Magnum, .38 Special, & 10mm Auto), 7-shot (.357 Magnum & .327 Federal Magnum), or 10-shot (.22 Long Rifle) revolvers, made by Sturm, Ruger & Co. in the United States.
Since its introduction, it has been produced with a number of variations including various barrel lengths and profiles, fixed or adjustable sights, and in blued carbon steel or stainless steel finishes.
It was introduced in 1985 as a second generation of the Ruger double-action, exposed-hammer revolvers intended to replace Ruger’s Security-/Service-/Speed-Six line.
It was made stronger than the previous line of revolvers, with the intent to fire an unlimited number of full-power .357 Magnum rounds.
The GP100 shares the crane lock from the larger Ruger Redhawk.
All of these revolvers use the same thickness on the solid frame and double latching system as is used on the heavy .44 Magnum model.
Because of these features, the GP100 series is widely described as one of the strongest medium frame revolvers ever made.
The stock grips are made of Santoprene, a soft, chemical resistant elastomer that helps absorb the recoil of firing.
Panels on the side, made of black plastic, goncalo alves wood, or rosewood, provide contrast to the flat black of the Santoprene.
This gun is in like new, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The stainless steel finish is virtually perfect with no discernible marks or scratches.
The original grips are still perfect.
The cylinder lockup is almost as new (although it has been fired, but very little).
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is perhaps a little large (heavy) for every day carry, unless for a large-framed person, especially with a 6″ barrel.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- SADPA MPDS – Revolver division (REV)
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
