Hey picked up a new GP100 in SS and man this is a stout little beast any upgrades you guys recommend
shoot it. thats all i do with mine. nice addition.
That is one fine looking revolver sir! Enjoy it and be sure to give us a range report!
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.
Cool yeah ruger gives ya 20% off their store when you register the warrenty card online so I ordered it and a speedloader through them got the hiviz sight with 6 pipes
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.
Very nice Ill have to look into that spring kit I lower cars and do electronics in them quite a bit should be able to do springs in a gun I think
Ammo and speed loaders is all I've done to my ruger.
Love my GP100! Had mine for so long now I forget what year I bought it, back in the '90s somewhere. Its seen tons of rounds, mostly .357 mag and easily handles it:
No stupid Hillary lock holes. thank you.
Love it so much I have two! One home defense to leave at home with my wife and one to go camping with me and the boys:
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.

The entire series of IBOKs are very cheap to buy. Join the forum and contact Iowegan there.
I ok'd the link to my blog on the GP100-----
I have been wanting to get a 6" SS model for a longtime, after seeing this i need to find one.
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.
Yeah its been good so far havent dont the trigger yet but have been buying up all the cheap 357 I can afford to get stockpiled but it will happen some day
