    Excellent gun. Easy to shoot +P or 357. Reliable, 6 shots and solid feel.
    Ditto. I have the same gun, bought new in 1989. I will never sell it; my oldest son will inherit it someday.

    I have this gun, bought new in 1989. It is rock solid. The only modification I made to it was to install Tritium night sights.

    It handles .357 magnums no problem, of course, and .38 spl +p are pussycats in this firearm.

    It is possible to carry it concealed, especially here in Michigan in the winters. It's also a great woods gun. It goes with me deer hunting, fishing and camping. It's also my go-to home defense handgun, and my 'car gun' on long driving vacations.

    I am guessing the reason you don't see many on the used market is simply because, like me, most owners would sooner sell one of their kids!

    Indeed

    I had the chance to handle one before. A KGP 161, that's the 6 inch model in stainless. The finish was around 300 to 400 grit. Great balance for being a six inch revolver with full under lug.

    The thing that really surprised me, soon as I picked it up: easily the most comfortable handgun grip I'd ever held, hands down. I almost bought it based on that the moment I picked it up.

    I would quite honestly like to see Ruger manufacture their proprietary GP 100 series revolver grips: to fit other popular revolvers. They were that comfortable. I'd pay somewhere between $60-$80 for such a product.

    I guess now they're putting the Hogue grip on it - this seemed like a mistake to me. I like the original, and would never change it.

    Good choice of revolvers my friend.

    The Ruger GP100 has become my favorite .357 Magnum Revolver.

    I would quite honestly like to see Ruger manufacture their proprietary GP 100 series revolver grips: to fit other popular revolvers. They were that comfortable. I'd pay somewhere between $60-$80 for such a product.
    Sadly the Lett Company, the manufacturer of those stocks, are out of business. They made what I consider the best handgun stock for a revolver. I won't be taking mine of the Rugers I own.

    You can't go wrong with a GP100. I have had a 4 inch for 15 years or so. Well really it is the wifes since she liked it so much. Never a problem, and you can shoot some really hot stuff out of them.

    38 sp shoot fine out of them. She will using 38's week after next to qualify for her Texas CHL Instructor course. They are probably a bit heavy for daily carry, but make great guns for kicking around in the woods, or home defense and range use.

    The gun shop I use had a 4 inch GP 100 that had been shot 4 times for 425 a month or so ago, I am certain it is long gone.

    Good luck, if you do get one you won't regret it.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I love mine and will hopefully never get rid of it. However, rear sight movement makes it impossible to 'zero'. To take full advantage of the capabilities of this gun, I will have to replace the rear sight with the Bowen Rough Country.
