    I am thinking about converting my 4" Ruger GP-100 357.mag to a 10mm. That way, I can shoot 10mm and 40 S&W out of it. (I know about the S&W 610, I don't want to spend $1,200.00) Has anyone done this or something similar?

    By the time you're done you'll more than likely have spent the $1200.00 and you'll end up with a gun that's hardly better than the one you started with. The performance of 10mm is only slightly better than a .357 and only in the hottest loadings so the performance increase will be much less than dramatic.


    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for getting what you want and if that's your reasoning then by all means go for it. I'm currently switching a .22lr to a .22Mag for no real reason other than just wanting it. Let us know how it goes.

    Except that he already owns the GP, and earlier this year Clements was quoting $550 for the 10mm conversion on GP's, and that included an action job.

    If your gonna stay with a revolver, why not just get a .41 mag? It's what everybodys says the 10mm almost compares to.

    Clements quoted me $450.00, (including moonclip) bringing my total to 800.00. A .41 mag would keep me in the realm of rimmed cartridges, and I can stay where I'm at for that. This way, I can use a non-rimmed cartridge in my revolver, and in my semi-autos at the same time. See the logic? Can't use 357mag in a semi, BUT I can go either way with a 10mm.

    Wow! prices have really come down on that conversion. At that price I'd say go for it if the 10mm is what you want.
