Anyone handle the Ruger GP100 .44 Spl. 3" yet ?
I did see a buffed up DA only on FB yesterday.

Kind of nifty five shooter.

No Hammer?
5 shooter? WTH, no biggie there I s'pose.

I bought one of the first ones mfg’d when they came out and didn’t care for it. Bore axis felt like it was a foot from the web of my thumb, grouped all over the place. A friend of mine had to have it to I let it go. I was disappointed as the .44 Spl is one of my favorite cartridges and was pumped when Ruger announced the GP in it, but it wasn’t for me.

I had a GP100 357 as my first hand gun. Never liked the DA pull even with lighter springs. Love shooting S&W revolvers.

I've looked at it several times and passed. I just dont see the advantage in a 44 spl over a 357 if I'm going to lose one round. Not sure how far you can push it with reloads and dont want to find out. GP100 is my favorit DA revolver but the new 7 shot .357 they just came out with looks to be a better bet.

Now if they could pull off a 5 shot 41 Mag that would be something...
