Ruger has, at long last, answered customers’ requests to increase the number of chambers in the standard GP100 .357 Mag./.38 Spl. revolver’s cylinder from six to seven. This new version of the company’s cornerstone double-action platform will be available with 2.5", 4.2" and 6" barrels. The barrel, cylinder, frame and appointments are constructed of satin finished stainless steel. All three barrel lengths feature an adjustable white-outline rear sight paired with a fiber-optic front sight. The Hogue finger-grooved Monogrip, common to most models these days, has been replaced with the original “old school” wood-paneled synthetic stocks. Other features include a triple-locking cylinder and a no-tools-required takedown procedure of integrated subassemblies for easy cleaning and maintenance. ruger.com
