What holster if any??
This is a discussion on Ruger Wiley Clapp GP 100 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I want one. Love the guns he modifies. Wish I could get it here......

What holster if any??
Now that I cant find any of the shotguns I wanted, I think a 357 revolver is in my near future. He WC ruger is defintely in the running
I gave my daughter a 4" GP100 for her HD gun. I hated to see it leave. That is one very nice revolver. I spend a day deburring and polishing the internals. Once I had it smooth as butter I replaced the trigger return spring with a Wolf spring. The double action trigger on that gun when I finished was amazing. Is amazing. I've thought about getting another one but keep buying semi-autos instead.

Man, that is beautiful. And I would love to have one just like it.
But with my three inch stainless Ruger Speed Six, I can't justify the need in front of all the other things I want to get first.
But I'm glad I have that old reliable three inch Speed Six. It is one of my favorite guns. I'm certainly jealous of yours.

I have one and carry it on daily basis I made hybrid kydex cowhide holster IWB.
Recoil very manageable.
Accurate with 357 mag 125 grain SD rounds .
Easy to get purchase on and control even weak hand.
Green light post front site is fast and easy to get on target.
Transition from holster to draw is quick and smooth the melt of this gun aids in the quick deployment smoothly.
The accuracy is is real good in high stress SD drills.
The trigger is nice and smooth.
When shooting 38 special +p is so easy to control and double taps are piece of cake.
Rugged sights easy to aquire.
Great gun with a tremendous amount of features that make it a great combat handgun. What else what you expect from Wiley!
Has anyone made the move to replace the fiber optic front sight with a Novak 1911 tritium front?
Excellent piece, man! Congrats to you and welcome to the 3" GP100 club!
I have a 3" fixed-sight GP-100 myself, which I have a LOT of respect for. They're great guns.
“Inequality" is a law of nature, not something government can "re-distribute”. The fit, well-educated, hard-working will prosper. And the unfit will not. It is not the responsibility of those who work hard and prosper to make the lives of those who do not, more “equal."
NOVAK offers tritium front sights for 1911s that should work on the WC GP100 if I can find the correct size on the NOVAK website.
I really like that green fiber site easy to aquire for me and even in low,light.
That's a purdy wheelgun. Congrats.
I emailed NOVAK.
They tell me that they will be offering a Tritium front sight for the Wiley Clapp GP (or maybe GP100s in general)
later this year.
That's good to hear about Novak offering the GP100 tritium front sight, either for the GP100 and or the Wiley Clapp model. This is the first fiber optic sight I've had on a firearm, so I'm not sure how durable they are, I am totally sold on the Meprolight tritium sights though!
