Nice revolver you have there. I really like the Hogue wood stocks and prefer the adjustable sight model like you have. I'm a huge fan of the GP100 revolver, but I prefer the full length barrel lug profile so it just doesn't work for me.

Being as my first center fire revolver was a brandy new Security Six in 1978, I am very partial to the half lug look. Trouble is fooling the wife that I need a Match Champion when I still shoot the hell out of my old Security Six. No honey it is not the same gun. Got a few ahead of it on the list but I really want one of these. Congrats on your fine acquisition.

Great piece, I have one also. Beautiful shooter.

Recoil has never been an issue with me on any of my guns however, when I put 357 rounds threw it the stock wood grips are not comfortable.

Just put on a Hogue rubber grip and what a difference.

I like the look of the wood better but if you are going to shoot a lot of 357 rounds you might like a change. Takes 5 minutes to change the grip.

I must be getting old, rubber grips, whats next? (don't answer that)

Nice choice! I have a gp100 and it's my favorite gun. Match champion is on the list, further down the line but on the list. Be safe

The match champion with fixed sights is on my short list of next guns to buy along with a .22 GP100.

When I worked with one I thought the wood Hogues on it were a good fit, till I shot it.
Not so good in my hand under recoil, but there are a number of alternatives if you need to switch.

I am very partial to my Ruger GP100 WCII I compared my GP100 WC in smoothness action & trigger pull to me S&W Mod. 66 no dash. Well my Ruger GP100 to me now is smoother in both action & trigger pull. I looked for 2 years to find the right fit with a GP100. I will say out of the box most S&W's are a smoother action & trigger pull. The Rugers tend to have rough spots & burrs that have to be cleaned out. I have found some stock GP100's at times with smoother actions then a MC that I also looked at the same time. So if you are very picky & take your time to really check out your revolver before you buy it then you are good to go. I would think a Ruger GP100 MC & WC does have some nice custom features you will really like my favorite is the Novak Custom sights used on these revolver's! I would go out & enjoy your MC they are truly a beautiful revolver to have nice purchase for the OP!!!

I love the GP100MC, I was disappointed in the trigger work a little. I think that it was subpar to S&W Performance Center guns. The first thing I did was finish the trigger job by polishing the surfaces and putting lighter main spring and trigger return springs. This gave me an awesome trigger with a clean crisp break 2.25lbs SA and 7lbs DA. Very accurate and the sights are decent. Was disappointed in the poor finishing on the Hogue stock but overall an excellent.

I ordered one earlier and picked it up today. It shoots very well and the action is silky smooth. This is a replacement for my Service-Six that served me well for thirty years. When my daughter moved to Texas earlier this year, I let her choose any handgun from the safe, yup the Service-Six. It came down to the MC and S&W 686 SSR, after evaluating them side by side, the choice was quite easy.
