Ruger GP100 44 Special?

S&W has the 44 magnum model 69 that holds 5 rounds. Would Ruger ever build a 5 shot 44 Special GP100, could they? If anyone is listening at Ruger I'd have a hard time NOT buying a WC styled one with a three inch barrel.

If they ever do, I hope they make it in .44 mag. In the past Dave Clements has built 5 shot .44 SP GP's and he claimed they could be loaded fairly stout e.g. 250 gr bullet at 1200 fps. Dave Reeder still offers this conversion:

Skorpion

Clements, when he made his, used a rebored factory barrel. See:

I could see a 5 shot .44 Magnum but right now S&W's mod. 69 is already out!

Go to the link posted below from Ruger's website and scroll to "Tell the CEO". You can write Mike Fifer, CEO of Ruger and he does read every email sent to him. If enough demand is out there, Ruger will make it happen. Personally I'd love to see a 44 Spl GP100 or SP101. I remember writing years ago for a 22lr GP100 and it was released last year.

Im with you on that. A slimmer 44 mag for woods carry in 44 mag would be an excellent combination

A 5 shot .44mag, possibly. A 5 shot .44 special, very doubtful. .44mag is a very small market. .44 special is a small fraction of the mag.

I agree... A five-shot 44 special GP100 would be a dream gun for me.

I've waited on a 44 special GP for years. I finally gave up and bought a S&W 69.

Denis... I hate when you do that...

I would buy a 4" GP100 sized, 5 shot 44 Mag from Ruger in a heartbeat. I would have no interest in a 44 Special when a Magnum version could be had.

A three inch version with some of the Wiley Clapp models details and Compact grips would be great.
