    The only thing I'm thinking of doing to my GP100 is adding the HiViz front sight and possibly getting a crimson trace laser grip. I love this gun!

    Congrats on the new Ruger! Looks just like mine, the only thing I changed was to swap out the front sight for one that was more visible.

    Yep, that's the one I want also. The one I have shot needed no other additions. Dead on and a joy to handle.

    I have had my Gp100 for almost 20 years..... Still one of my favorites to shoot and my favorite looking revolver. Plus as massive as it is, I have total confidence in it, no matter what factory load goes in...

    I love mine. 6in barrel, stainless, with the now-defunct rubber & wood grips. First wheelgun I bought, and it's seen a pile of .357 & .38. I could be forced to sell or trade most any handgun but this one.

    Great gun.. Love mine...Agree about the Hiviz sights. They make a big difference and are very easy to install. I put Badger Rosewood grips on mine. Makes for a great looking gun.

    Wolff or Trapper spring kit. Really helps the double action pull.

    I've got several trophies thanks to my Stainless 6" GP. I've also shot my smallest 25 yard handgun groups with it. I've gotten several one-hole six shot clusters. After tens of thousands of rounds (over a thousand of them magnums) it still shoots as well as it did new. Needless to say, it's one of my do-not-sell guns.

    Congrats and enjoy the best mass-produced double action 357 magnum revolver made.

    I second the spring upgrade. Something you can do yourself if you have even a lilttle mechanical aptitude. Really helps the DA pull. The gp100 is a great shooting gun whether for self defense, plinking or even hunting. It really handles all loads well. Here's mine.

    I put wolff springs in mine. Very simple to do, especially since you must have at least a vague understanding of mechanics if you work on cars.

    A wolf spring kit and do a bit of research and learn to polish all the appropriate trigger components. You will have a smooth lighter trigger that will make you cry with joy.

    Also very stout pistol if you like hot loads.
