Just wanted to share with you how excited i am about my new revolver! Ain't she a beauty? Any ideas on what should I name her?

A hint:

If you take off the stocks you will find a little pin inside. It is loose and can fall out. It's used to lock out the mainspring strut if you take the revolver apart to clean it.

Be careful you don't drop and lose that pin. Many new owner do.

Oh! And another radical thought. Read the manual... ;)

I have the same with a six inch barrel, and a little orange paint on the front sight.

I love the modular design, and the wood insert grips are great.

well given she ain't the pretiest (don't get me wrong gp100 is one of my favorites) I'd name her hilda or somethin along those lines

Well done! Those can be very nice shooters -- esp in the magnums! ;)

Don't take this the wrong way, but GP100s always looked a lot like a "Rosie" Basically a blonde robust/large frame woman, with a talent for being a great lover. Feed her right, and she will reward you.:)
