First built as a replacement for the Security-Six, Speed-Six and Service-Six revolvers, the GP100 makes handling .357 Mag. easier than ever and is a staple of Ruger's line.

Easy on the hand—GP100s remain one of the most comfortable revolvers to shoot—and on the budget, this revolver has been a favorite since its introduction in 1985. And, just like all Ruger models, it's 100 percent made in the U.S.A.

Note: The GP100 featured here is the distributor exclusive Wiley Clapp/TALO model.
