Ruger Custom Shop engineers tuned its well-regarded GP100 double-action revolver to provide additional robust features with enhancements that elevate the proven Ruger wheelgun to a custom level suitable for top-level performance. Ruger provides a 6” cold-hammer-forged stainless steel barrel with an included 11-degree target-style crown with an internal twist rate of one turn in 16”.
The Super GP100 Competition provides a triple-locking stainless steel cylinder chambered for eight rounds of 9 mm Luger. The PVD-finished cylinder is fluted and shortened to reduce its overall mass and increase rotational speed. Given the chambering of 9 mm Luger, Ruger provides three moon clips and includes an unloading tool. Additionally, a custom-molded, locking hard case rounds out the Super GP100 Competition package.
A satin-finished stainless steel frame comes wrapped in Hogue hand-finished hardwood stocks. The gun’s internal components have seen a full treatment of Ruger’s Custom Shop gunsmiths. Two-spring lock work was borrowed from the company’s Super Redhawk design to further enhance reliability of the double-action design. An optimized trigger mechanism with a centering boss and trigger shims improve the trigger’s function.
