    I am looking to replace my 4" fixed sighted GP-100 with a 2.75" fix sight barrel. It is SS. Where can I find one for sale?

    Yes. There is a special conversion tool available known as a "hacksaw" :D.

    Seriously, you might be better off chopping it if the gun shoots well now and has a respectable barrel/cylinder gap. Once chopped and crowned, have a dovetail cut for whatever front sight you want.

    Assuming this is a stainless gun, the barrel threads can spall when removing the stock barrel and it might never be quite right afterwards. Having a gunsmith chop/crown/dovetail may be safer overall.

    I havn't seen any 2.75" barrels for the GP-100,
    ruger might refit yours with a 3" barrel.Any
    good smith can shorten yours but should run
    you about 150-180 dollars.

    I don't think Ruger will modify the gun unless it was sold in that configuration at some point. IE They will replace spur hammer with a spurless hammer on a 2.25" SP101 but not a 3" because it was never sold that way. If the GP was sold with a 2.75" barrel they should replace it for a fee of course, if not they won't. Give them a call and let us know what happens.

    Yep, Ruger said they would not sell me the parts. I guess I will forget about it for a while. Thanks guys.
