    While I have a few other makes, Ruger is by far and away my favorite.

    I like the S&W action but like the ruger balance and durabilty and looks better. Plus I feel you get more for your money and if you have problem Ruger takes good care of you. I would never buy a used S&W but I would buy a used Ruger.

    I only have one right now. A SP101. I hope to add a GP100 and a few others though. I do enjoy the SP101. It is very rugged a good shooter and easy to carry. Can't ask for much more.

    I been through a lot of wheel guns over the years and you can't beat Colt Pytons & Rugers. The Ruger, Gp, SP, and Redhawks will get the job done for a life time and then some. I carry a SP101 2 1/4" Barell everyday. Fact I got it on right now. Young guys down at the range say well you only got 5 shots. Well most gun fights are over in less than that but I do carry 5rds of back up. Hope this picture takes.

    Ruger Redhawk and GP-100 3" here.

    I recently got the GP-100 back from the local gun plumber; I had him grit-blast it to clean-up the dents and dings from the previous owner (a Canadian PD, I believe) and reduce the shine, as I plan to use it as an outdoors companion this year:






    Roughed-up-to-dull-the-surface-shine grip panel inserts from an SP-101 complete the package.
    I simply MUST do something about that grip screw and insert; WAY too reflective for this gun, now.

    dj niner,

    I just picked up one of those Canadian Police Guns reimported by CAI. Mine however is DAO. The hammer spur is gone and there is a small 1/4" patch at the top of the hammer that is checkered. I have not had the chance to shoot it yet but I am really looking forward to doing so very soon. I usually bead blast my stainless guns to give them a matte finish, but I really like the way yours looks. Very rough country, hard use look.

    Here my latest invention. I took an extra stainless 5.5" Redhawk, in my favorite caliber....the 41 Remington Magnum and cut the barrel to 4" for ease of carry when hunting. I dehorned the whole gun, did some light trigger component polishing and reworked the grip frame and grips. I really like the end result.

    That's the nicest-looking Redhawk I've ever seen, bar none. I much prefer the front sight with base you used, over the plain blade on the new 4" factory Redhawks; it's just hanging out there like a sailboat sail, waiting to get knocked off or bent. Same for the front sight on the Alaskans.

    I do want to try the new Hogue grips used on the factory 4" Redhawk; they look like they might work well for me (although I like the looks of nice wood grips, i generally prefer synthetic grips for actual use with magnum loads).

    DJ,

    Thanks a lot......I am really proud of how my Redhawk turned out. The interchangable front sight is the only way to go on the Redhawk. I don't care for the new 4" Redhawk front sight either. To me, it just looks like a piece of cheap plastic glued to the barrel of a great looking gun......JMHO!!!!

    The more I look at your GP-100, with that grey blast finish, the more I like it. I was planning to beadblast my GP-100, but for a field gun that grey blast is the way to go, in my humble opinion.

    tex
