      Ruger GP-100 357 vis ??????

      Hello all;
      I own a couple of Ruger Semi-Autos (SR9c & LCP) but I'm looking at a new wheel gun in .357 MAG.
      I used to own a S&W 686 years ago and it was a god gun but I sold it
      I recently bought a Marlin 1894 lever action in .357 MAG so now I want to get a revolver to go along with it.

      My question is: How would you compare a 6" GP-100 to say, a S & W 686 or Taurus 627 (both 6")?
      The Taurus has the Ported Barrel and S & W the "Name" (?)

      Yes I do know this is a Ruger site (or board) but I have seen you have given straight answers.

      Thanks in advance.

      Lateck,

      I had the same question a while back and am pleased to announce I chose GP-100.

      I have no regrets.

      You can't go wrong with the Ruger or the S&W. They are both fine revolvers and the companies stand behind them. A Taurus with a problem may turn into a nightmare for you. It did for a friend of mine. Good luck.

      Thanks for the input from all.
      I went ahead and ordered a GP-100 5" through Davidson's Gallery.
      (Kept changing my mind between a 4" and 6")
      I'll post the results at the range after I get it next week.

      Lateck,

      Lateck,
      You made a good choice. Both Ruger and S&W are very good, and choice of a model is a matter of personal preference. Both can be slicked up to provide a really nice trigger, and both can be more accurate than you can use.

      THAT'S SCARY! I certainly hope nobody was injured.

      I'm glad they made it right for you! That was a significant product failure.
