Nice Lower!

I bought my blue 4" used. It's got those wood grip, I think they look better.

The shop had a Talo in January but I didn't have enough saved.

I used to have a 4" blued model with the wood insert (Lett) grips.

I sold it off like a dummie, and regretted it so much that I got a 3-inch stainless model. The second one was a "rescue" from a local gun shop's used gun counter.

Those Talos are awesome-looking guns, but a bit outside of my normal budget.

For grips, I ordered the compact grips (that used to be stock on the 3" models) and "grip locator" from Midway USA. I then ordered the cocobolo inserts from an eBay seller named "1Chig" who does outstanding work. As soon as Midway gets more of the compact grips in stock, I will get a set for my second GP100. Right now, it is wearing the Uncle Mike's combat grips that you see in the picture. They are actually pretty decent, but I want the other style.

Actually it does on for a range session with hot loads. But they are a little "meaty" for a carry gun. I have a 4 in. stainless GP. I always wished I had bought the blue one instead.

Nice revolver. Ruger GP100 is to me the best value in a 357 double action that can handle any factory load.
Good luck,

Roaddog,

I agree....I was saving for a S&W 586 but it disappeared in the panic before I could buy it. The GP100 was substantially less.

You appear to be in need of a front sight. Great buy otherwise!

At first, I thought, . . . "what the crap is that under the cylinder?" Then I realized it was a "hide the serial number" cut/paste.

The GP-100 in 3" is one of the sexiest guns ever made. Was & is.

Esthetically, I put it up there with BHP, 1911, CZ.

LOVE EM!

Now, is it not relatively easy to put a front Big Dot or Fiber Optic on this model?

It is a sexy little tank :-)

I have the blued 6". Great shooting gun, but in low light or pointing at a black silhouette target (with my old eyes) the blue sights disappear. i have ordered a fiber optic front site from Hiviz and am hoping that will resolve. Anyone have any experience with Hiviz?

My solution was always a small bottle of Testor's model enamel and a toothpick. Just a tiny drop on the front sight makes it show up on those dark backgrounds. Black sights are only useful for light backgrounds or targets. You can always scrape it off if you want to go back to black.

Nice buy I just picked up a GP100 4" a few months ago. Haven't gotten to shoot it much lately but love it!

The GP-100 is one of my favorite revolvers, in any barrel length.

I use the Hi-viz front blade sight on both my Ruger wheelguns. it is a great sight. nothing but good things to say about it. I am comfortable out to about 30 yards against any target that could be a threat to me.
