Very nice! How much bigger overall is the GP than the SP? Since yours are configured identical, just cylinder size being different.

It's considerable in size and weight, but not rediculous. I have used the dremel quite a bit on the grips now as they have some corners that are uncomfortable. I like the feel of the GP best though. The trigger pull is actually a little heavier, but it's so smooth it doesn't feel like it. The GP is so controllable as is it's remarkable. I put 300 rounds through the SP to losses it up, then did the action job found on this forum, and put in the Wolff 8#trigger and 10#hammer springs. In the last 500 rounds it has gone bang every single time in double action and is getting as controllable as the GP. I shoot a fairly stout 357 load of 125 grain XTPs and Xtreme bullets, as well as just under the +P load found in the Hornady book and it is quite controllable and accurate.

I think I am going to do the same thing to the GP

Nice pair of revolvers. Much as I like the SP101, my bias would be towards the big bore .44 GP100.

Lol. I actually like the 44 best. That's my wintertime/woods gun. The SP is my summertime gun.
