Last week I put a WTB post in three different internet gun forums. I wanted to buy either a 4" Ruger GP100 or a 4" S&W 686.

I received four responses within two days. One came from a different state and three from my own local area. The deal with the out of state seller fell through. I inspected the three local offerings and chose a GP100.

The condition of the revolver is outstanding. There is not a blemish on the surface, the barrel is mirror clean and the working of the moving parts crisp and solid. the seller told me that the gun had been used only once at the range. I believe him after my inspection.

The seller was professional, courteous and pleasant. The price ($400) was fair and reasonable.

I am quite happy with the results.

VERY NICE! I shot my SP101 .357 yesterday for the first time. Loved it!

BigN, I believe they are stock grips. The seller told me the revolver was purchased new seven years ago by his grand father and taken to the range once only.

I had one just like it and traded it. I miss it sometimes. Very nice revolvers. My Security Six misses its big brother.

Nice deal. Congrats. I would pay that in a heartbeat.

Nice gun! The condition looks mint, the barrel length is perfect and the price was more than fair.

You landed an awesome gun at an awesome price. I just paid a little more than that for the same gun blued and thought that I got a good deal.
