I'm with you Khari. Have two SP's and a Speed in 9mm. Waveforms logic is sound. That said, it would not bother me in the least if the Factory brought them back. I'm enjoying them today instead of worrying about the future.

Not me, I do not buy guns because they are rare. If they are, does not stop me from buying them, but at my price. All guns are shooters to me. Unless the GP is a eight shot I probably would not get it even at a competitive price.

I guess to each his own........ But it would take way more than $900 to get either my 327 Blackhawk or GP100 and they are both shooters. I shoot them a lot. Now the two tone 327 Blackhawk just ain't for sale......... at any price.

I'm with you. My GP ain't for sale at a price anyone would consider reasonable. I'm actively seeking a Blackhawk, but the Henry Big Boy in .327 is first.

You will regret not grabbing it.

Never planned on letting my SP101 .327FM go to me where its a 3 inch its as rare as a GP100 .327FM. I tried my best to work out a trade/cash deal what gets me is the seller tells me that he has someone coming to look at it. My response was hey you never told me what you might come down to in a cash deal. He tells me $700.00 I could have brained this gentleman when told me that and he has someone coming. I wanted to say hey I made contact to you first. But to me it wasn't worth the hassle. I even offered a mint S&W K framed Model 66 .357. His original asking price on the GP100 .327 was $900.00 I have seen the Model 66 no dash revolvers go for $800.00 or more I thought that I was offering something close in value then I hear the crap oh but I don't know if I can get parts for it. He wasn't ever interested in a trade the only gun I had that he really was showing some interest in was my SP101 .327FM. if it was a 4.2 barrel I would have offered it with no problem's. I had never said I was going to offer my SP101 I did tell him I had a .327FM but I wanted a heavier gun as well. Well I think the best thing is to look for a Ruger Single Seven in a 5.5 barrel. I will save and buy a new one & forget the GP100 .327

I settled for an old stock NIB LCR 327FM at a reasonable price. Its a pocket rocket with the factory 100 gr loads. Trigger pull is great for a DA only revolver. It would be nice to get a GP however.....
