While pistols have probably become the more popular gun, there is just something about a finely tuned revolver, such as the Ruger Custom Shop Super GP100. Ruger took its traditional revolver to the next level with this out-of-the-box-ready competition gun.
This Custom Shop revolver features polished and optimized internals, a centering boss on the trigger and centering shims on the hammer. All this combines to produce a smooth, double-action trigger pull and a crisp, consistent let-off. It also comes with an adjustable rear sight and quick-change fiber optic front sight for a great sight picture for rapid target acquisition.
Ruger created the frame, cylinder and barrel from stainless steel, and then coated all three with a PVD finish to provide corrosion resistance, durability and reliability. The company also used the renowned action of the Super Redhawk. This system contains a two-spring lockwork arrangement providing an even double-action cycle and reliable ignition. The sleeve and shroud barrel is contoured for fast manual ejection and features an 11-degree target crown for competitive-level accuracy. The company also added aesthetic cuts in the barrel shroud and cylinder help reduce overall weight and improve balance. Chambered in .357 Magnum, the cylinder and extractor are cut for moon clips to speed reloading during intense competition.
“The Ruger Custom Shop continues to produce competition-ready firearms,” said Ruger President and CEO Chris Killoy. “The new Super GP100 is yet another example of our Custom Shop’s fine craftsmanship, and will allow our customers to compete at the highest levels.”
