I would greatly appreciate any recommendations you might have.
I have 2 Vaqueros and a 44mag Super Redhawk Alaskan and this is the first Ruger that has disappointed me.
Thanks for listening

I'm not surprised, Ruger has disappointment me many times over the last few years. One GP100 i purchased shot 2 inches to the right.....and the rear sight was all the way too the right, there was no way to sight it in since the rear sight was all the way right.

but its my fault, i kept buying Rugers.

If your GP is shooting to the right you move the rear sight to the left. Rear sight goes in the direction you want the group to go. Front sight goes in the opposite direction.

Not according to the manual. If your hitting to far right, you mover the rear sight to the right. I called ruger and asked. Thats what they told me to do. They ended up asking me to send the handgun in. They replaced the barrel and it shoots great now. I will say they will fix their problems. I'm not a fan of the trigger pull, however, its not a custom gun. Like the ad says...rugged, reliable firearms.

I don't why the CS REP told me different, or why they re-barreled it. Doesn't matter now, it shoots great. I may get the action worked on or just shoot the crap out of it.

I don't think some of the CS Reps know much about their products or firearms in general.

I have one of the new GPs in 44 special and it has the best double action pull in any Ruger , out of the box. I've had. I picked up a 4" GP in 357 the other day and the trigger is awful gritty. I've stoned it and it helped but still not happy with it yet

The DA on my GP100 is a little lack luster, however, in SA mode the trigger pull is nice and crisp. It doesn't care much for Federal Champion ammo though. I may buy some Black Hills

I have to totally agree with Range Dog, in fact my GP100 WCII is my favorite .357. I will not buy a firearm off of Gun Broker or online period!!! I want to see feel & handle my firearm before I will put down hard earned $$$
