Question Price check for new GP100?

I have finally decided that my life will never be all it can or should be without a new Ruger GP100 .357 revolver.

I want a 4" barrel stainless model, but I don't want to get screwed on the price.

Nearest gun shops to me quoted me $490. Is this high (I know it's not low)?

Thanks.

Considering Ruger's MSRP is $660 for stainless and $598 for blued, $490 isn't sounding so bad. These revolvers have really gone up in price the last few years. The KGP-141 is my personal favorite (stainless, full lug, adjustable sights, 4" barrel). Probably the most versatile revolver on the market ... bar none.

That's the one that I want, the KGP141. The new all-black Hogue grips the '08 GPs sport are cool, too.

I would think the $490 is about market value, may find it a bit lower but not much. If you have the cash and are not in a hurry, keep looking, you might find a better deal or a used like new somewhere that can be had a lot cheaper if the cash is offered. If you really want it now, then go for this one. My local shop has one used for $425. That seems high to me too. But then again I remember buying them for $300-----

Sounds about right. Bud's last price on the blued version as $443 + insurance + transfer fee would work out to about $483. Their price on a stainless 3" right now is $472 + insurance + transfer fee which would be about $502. Given that I'd say $490 is a pretty fair price.

490$ is a good price here in Kansas and the 4" GP is a whale of a gun!

I paid $537 for my stainless 6" at Cabella's a few months back. That's a far cry from the $350 I paid for a stainless 4" at a Wal-Mart in San Antonio back in 1991! I sold that gun in a moment of insanity....live and learn I guess.

You gentlemen may not know it, but life is good in the States. Up here in Canada, our shooting costs are way higher and our disposable income is lower.

Last March, my new GP100 6 inch stainless was equivalent to US$650.00 plus 12% taxes. The only other store in town who had it in stock wanted 50 bucks more. The upside is that it still had the old rubber and wood insert grips.

The Blackhawk 6.5 inch stainless, was US$400 plus taxes in April. 98% condtion, not bad considering it's 25 yrs old.

CCI small primers are $35.00/thousand and Titegroup is $30.0/lb.

Oh yes, the SW 586-1 with 97% blue, I just ordered totalled US$520.00 shipped.

Count your blessings, guys.

Just bought a NIB one at GunBroker for $440. After shipping and transfer fees, it should come out around $482. Compare that to a new one here at $490 plus 9 percent sales tax.
