That is an interesting, 'racy' looking gun. I like it! Thanks for posting up pics of it. Congrats on the 'new' toy. I like that Ruger comes out with new things to figure out what is going to appeal to people. They won't know unless they try and it looks like this gun might catch on, especially if it proves to be an accurate shooter. It something is ACCURATE and RELIABLE, it will find an audience.

I don't hate the looks on this one at all. In fact, the OP's pictures make it look reasonably attractive to my eyes. Unlike the Pythons, whose vent ribs are there for cosmetic reasons (according to some articles I've read), the cuts here actually serve a purpose in reducing weight and I like the look.

Question for the OP - is the double action pull noticeably better than the stock GP100?

Good question. My GP100 has been shot quite a bit and has worn in quite nicely. The Super GP100 hasn't had nearly as many rounds through it.

So, a brand new SGP100 vs a well worn-in GP100, the GP100 wins. That being said, the SGP-100 does indeed have a good trigger out of the box.

Glad to see Ruger take this step. Now, I patiently wait for them to take another...5" non vented barrel, chambered in 45 Colt.

They did that long before the Super GP was introduced. A 7-shot standard frame GP-100 has been out for quite a while.

The Super GP is a reply to the Smith 627 .357 8-shot and the 929 9mm 8-shot N-frames.

BTW, the Super GP has just been announced in 9 mm also.

Yes sir. On a recent Gun Talk podcast Tom G. was talking to a Ruger rep and he said just that. There's a wealth of information on Gun Talk and AAR podcasts.

Good Morning, Red9!

Fer those that want smooth trigger pulls with the SGP100's, I heartily recommend Wolff Gun Springs kits. I changed out hammer and trigger springs, first day. Factory springs are fine fer those fellas with King Kong hands an' wrists... Me? I'm a short ol' geezer wi' small hands. So, I put 8lb trigger spring, an' 10lb hammer springs on both my revolvers. Smooth as can be, an' breaks like glass... I've done this with all my Ruger revolvers over th' years. ALWAYS trade out the factory springs, an' go with Wolff Gun Springs!!!

Red9, I look forward to yer videos- you're a very knowledgable young chap...

Regards,
OldPaladin1949

Congratulations on the purchase!! I think they are neat looking and if I could find a reason to own one .. I would start saving my nickels .. but I am pretty imaginative so maybe a reason will come to me.

Good luck and enjoy!!

Thanks for the info, Paladin. I might have to give the spring kit a try.

cutouts on the outer barrel
