Ruger GP100

Post by beeser on 12/29/2014, 5:01 pm

A few weeks ago a Ruger GP100 caught my eye at a local gunshop and then again today I saw an older version of it.  Both were 6" stainless and looked really nice.  I have never noticed Ruger revolvers mentioned here, only S&Ws.  Is there a reason why Rugers are not popular with Bullseye shooters?

It's harder to reach the hammer on the Ruger and there isn't a target hammer that I've been able to find on the market.  Other than that, it's fine for bullseye.

Most/many Ruger GP-100s have an interesting trigger pull. Two stages?. With a little practice it's easy (easier than most) to pull to index the cylinder - slight hesitation, then pull on through to fire. -- Big strong hands with trigger finger joint on the edge of the trigger helps-a lot. ---Russ

I *suspect* that they are not as easy to perform a trigger job on. Different springs regime. The knowledge base just hasn't been developed, or at least disseminated, as far as I know.

But if you have one that will hold comfortably inside the 10 ring at 50 with your ammo, then run it. Any good shooter can get good results with a less than perfect trigger.
