Heads up, 10mm fans: Ruger’s GP100 Match Champion wheelgun lineup has a new model available in the cartridge developed by the late, great Col. Jeff Cooper back in 1983.
Featuring a stainless steel frame, the 10mm Auto GP100 Match Champion sports a half-lug 4.2-inch barrel with an 11-degree target crown, offering up what the company claims is “competition-level accuracy.” It also has a chamfered cylinder and ejector, making loading easier. Speaking of the cylinder, it’s triple-locked into the frame at the front, rear and bottom for positive alignment and reliable operation. In addition, the gun is adorned with custom Hogue hardwood grips with stippled sides.
Meanwhile, this revolver boasts polished and optimized internals; a centering boss on the trigger and centering shims on the hammer result in a “smooth double-action trigger pull and a crisp and consistent let-off,” Ruger says. Furthermore, the adjustable rear sight and fiber-optic front sight produce a sight picture that lets you get rapist acquisition on plates and targets.
Tipping the scales at 37 ounces and measuring 9.5 inches in OAL, the Ruger GP100 Match Champion in 10mm Auto ships with three moon clips. MSRP is $969.
