    range Report on Gemini Customs GP-100

    Well here as promised is the range report for my GP-100. The rain slacked off enough for me to sneak out and get some rounds off.


    145gr. Winchester Silvertip @ 15 yards is a very controlable load to shoot in this gun. It seems to really like the bullet weight and powder combo. Shooting freehand was easy to return to target.


    This one is 24 handloads with Hogdon 110 powder and 158gr Keith type SWC, as fast as I could get on target and reloading using three speed loaders. I also shot 6 MagTech 158gr. JHP's I had laying around......not bad at all. Both shot at 15yards freehand, Weaver stance.


    The last was some Federal 180gr. JHP Whitetail Loads at 25 yards sitting with my elbows resting on my knees. Not a very good group, but with this load, I found I have to hold at 6 o'clock to hit the bullseye


    All in all I am very pleased with the outcome. I must say that Marc Morganti's work has made this gun very pleasurable to shoot and well worth the investment.

    Hello, sir. V E R Y nice. For decades I used only S&W revolvers and I still really, really like them but then I bought a GP100 3" and an SP101 3 1/16". In my opinion, the GP100 can be a very, very nice revolver and one that I really enjoy shooting. Yours should be exceptionally nice with the very tasteful work you have had done to it. Thanks much for letting us see this little gem.

    Best.

    Those Gentleman in Frankfort, Kentucky (Gemini) surely know how to tune a Ruger Revolver! As soon as I "finish" my AR Coyote Gun I'm turning 'em loose on my SP101.

    Whoa! That's a TERRIFIC GP you've got there.

    I'm really considering a 3" GP100 for my next purchase, do you carry it and if so how does it carry weight wise?

    Thank You for the write up.

    If weight is a concern, consider a SP101 3" (five shot) or a Security/Speed Six 3" (six shot). Either is substantially lighter than a GP100 but CANNOT be considered frail by any stretch.
