The Ruger GP100 For Sale

Longevity and performance are key ingredients in the Ruger GP100 buy online line. American Rifleman’s review of a seven-shot, .357 Mag. model explains, “The frame is machined from a 410 stainless steel casting. To increase strength, there’s no side plate; instead, the internal parts are installed either through the top or bottom of the grip frame. Contributing to the test revolver’s 40-ozs. weight and front-heavy feel is a 3/4″-thick, 4.2″ barrel…While somewhat taxing for everyday, all-day carry, the heft greatly reduces the perceived recoil of stout .357 Mag. loads. Of course, in addition to .357 Mag. ammunition, the gun can safely fire .38 Spl. +P and .38 Spl. loads as well.”

    I ordered the Ruger GP100 with a box of ammo but only the Ruger was delivered without ammo. I had to contact them and it took 3 more days for it to be delivered. I was highly disappointed.
