Ready to buy
I'm heading out tomorrow to lay out some greenbacks for a new GP-100. My final question to ya'll is reliability of the GP-100 as compaired to the Blackhawk 357. The local Gun Shop has both in stock.
The GP-100 is a fine gun and about as reliable as a revolver can be. Like all Rugers they are built like tanks. Of course the GP-100 is a DA and the Blackhawk is SA.
enjoy your new gun!
Their both reliable weapons. The GP does give you DA/SA where the Blackhawk does not. And the GP has a swing out cylinder making loading a little faster while the Blackhawk has a load gate and you will have to eject and load one at a time. Other than that both will shoot great and always.
I ended up buying the 4" Blue GP-100, got it at a great price from the local Gun Shop. I just checked Ruger's Web Site and they are listing them at $616 now.
The GP-100 is a great revolver. Good choice, although the Blackhawk is a great gun, too.
Ya they are. Blackhawk will be my next purchase. I had to almost flip a coin to determind which Revolver I was going to buy.
My friend has a GP-100 and after shooting it I decided I need one too!
