Congrats! I hear the trigger action on the GP100 is noticeably smoother/lighter than the SP101 i'll be interested to hear your feedback. Enjoy!

Nice gun! Good choice! You are gonna love it. I enjoy it more and more every time I take it out. The trigger just gets nicer and nicer the more use it sees!

Excellent! Great revolver. Looks fine, feels great in the hand, and shoots 357 Magnums smoothly.

That is one sweet looking hand-cannon! Nothing could entice me to sell or trade mine!

Well, first large frame revolver lesson....pivot pin now properly installed. (I never moved it, must have come from the LGS like that)

Yes, I plan on keeping the grips, and yes, the trigger is much better than the SP101!!! I'm actually very impressed with the double action trigger!
