    The GP100 I picked up at a show a few days ago has only a partial underlug. Shoots well! When did Ruger start adding the full underlug to the GP100?

    I think from the very beginning. They went to full-underlug-only fairly recently as a cost saving issue I believe.

    Plus it "looks a bit more like a Python" with a full lug.

    :rolleyes:

    Yeah,short lugs are hard to find,but I like them better than the full.I had a 6" short lug(my 1st handgun)it was the most accurate gun I've ever shot.(I traded it away like an a-hole):banghead:

    Like TonyB, I think the half lug GP100s are better looking but I could live with either one if I could find one in my price range here.

    Yes that is correct , I have an old Guns&Ammo (around 1986) with a GP100 ad on the back cover - a 4" blued full lug.

    I like the full lug better myself , owned one of the 4" FL in stainless. Traded it away , one that I should have kept!:(

    I think the main purpose of the half lug is a lighter gun for carry purposes. And some simply like that design better.

    1/2 Lug

    I got a GP100 (GPF340) 4'' blued half lug last month. Real Nice! The weapon was manufactured in either 1988 or 89. The only thing I can figure is, she sat a long time in the box all alone doing nothing. I've put just under 500 threw her and she just keeps humming along (.38's / .357's).

    Rugers web site posts serial numbers with the year of mfg. FYI.
