Ruger GP100 Features

The Ruger GP100 is a double-action revolver chambered in .357 Magnum and has a 5 round cylinder.  Its double-action trigger and its ergonomically contoured grip make the GP100 a great choice as a defensive handgun while its 4.2 inch barrel gives the fired rounds plenty of muzzle velocity.

Ruger GP100 Ballistics

Ruger GP100 Capacity

The Ruger GP100 is chambered for the venerable .357 Magnum cartridge and has a 5 round capacity.  In addition, many revolvers, lever guns, and single-shot firearms can safely fire .38 Special out of it, including the Ruger GP100

Ruger GP100 Ergonomics

The Ruger GP100 features modern grip designs into a centuries-old action.  With the added material behind the hammer, this revolver is much more comfortable and capable of taking quick follow-up shots than the Colt 1873.  The textured Hogue grip promotes better control of this revolver when firing one-handed.

Ruger GP100 Fit & Finish

Whether you have the polished stainless steel model or the beautifully blued version, the Ruger GP100 is built with great care and attention to detail.  The double-action trigger has a long yet smooth pull, and the grip fits well into most hands.

Ruger GP100 Concealability
