Although the Ruger GP100 has been on the market for over 30 years now, it has almost always been a .38-cal. 6-shot. Blued or stainless, fixed or adjustable sights, long barrel or short, the typical caliber choices have been .357 Mag. and .38 Spl.

This year Ruger is breaking the decades-old mold with a 4" barrel GP100 fitted with a 10-shot cylinder chambered in .22 Long Rifle. The usually heavy barrel under lug has been trimmed back to give this revolver a lighter, more balanced feel. Other features include the company's traditional rubber grip with wood panels, a satin stainless steel finish and adjustable sights.

I was able to spend some time with the new GP100 at the range recently and it did not disappoint. The trigger was smooth and it ran without a hitch. This new version of the old standby is ideal for plinking, small game hunting and as a more affordable to shoot understudy to the .38/.357 versions.

Neither the United States nor Great Britain sent rifle teams to Athens, but that changed for the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
