Ruger makes a bewildering range of GP 100s with variable grip configuration, barrel lengths and lug shapes. They've been pretty accomidating to us GP 100 likers and there is really no excuse- but we have come up with a couple more we would like them to make:

An 8" Short Shroud GP with scope rings

4" adjustible sight with short shroud

instead of the Polished or Hi Gloss look.

Both look like great ideas.

Incidentally, while these pics seem to be B&W, I'd want the new GP100 variants to look exactly like this in the flesh -- in other words, stainless with the gray-toned wood grip inserts, like on the SRH Hunters.

Looks better.

The short shroud GP looks great. Add in a 2.75 inch version too.

I would settle for a 6-shot .44 Special. Surely they could drop some of the sillier products for a real tool...

8 inch short shroud GP-100? I have lusted for such an animal ever since I bought my full shroud 6 incher. The 8 would be great for hunters who prefer the 357. With fast and medium buring powders, there is little velocity gain with barrels over 5 or 6 inches, but with slow burning powders there is more complete combustion with an 8 inch barrel.

Exactly as you say. I had a 7.5" .357 bisley that gained little or nothing with light loads but was amazing with the old 40-47,000 psi ww 296 loads that the handbooks were were listing at the time. It was an engine of distruction.

3" Gp100 with or without underlug. It'd be a stronger equivalent of a S&W 66.

They already make a 3" GP-100.

They are also making the GP-100 in the Target Grey finish in 4" although it doesn't have the grey grip inserts. I've got one and love it. I want to put th esmaller grip on it and get the grey inserts as well.

WITH a short shroud. . . . . . . But it's a discontinued model. ( I've got one at the shop waiting to get picked up though! )
