I'm very fond of my stainless 6" GP100 chambered in 357 Mag. I normally shoot 38 Specials at the range and run a cylinder or two of 357 Magnums through it a couple times a year, just for grins.

Here's my 1995 vintage GP100:

Congratulations on the GP100. Pictures are a must though. I love mine. Once I got my GP100 I got rid of my 686,always shot the GP100 and it spoiled me. Never cared for the 686 after that.

Now if I was a JUDGE and this was a Beauty Pageant................ I wouldn't Know were to begin.......... Yes I would I would have to throw mine in the ring as well .lol



But all joke's aside. You gentlemen have some really nice revolvers and Iowegan that 95 model looks better than show room quality. Thanks

Those scope mounts are from https://www.jackweigand.com/scope.html
I have one too. They are great because you do not need to drill or tap your revolver. You just remove the sights and the scope mounts to where the sights were attached.

You made a great choice. I have a 6-inch GP100 that I bought something like 30 years ago. It's wonderfully accurate. Some spent cases are hard to eject from mine, but I haven't shot it for a long while so I can't remember which brands. Still, it's an amazing revolver.

That's exactly what I'm going to get for my GP100 6" stainless. I love it and can't wait to get the Weigand mount and get a scope on it for hunting.

The 6" GP100 is a family favorite here.

A couple more upsides of the Weigand mount are:

They fit almost any Ruger with a adjustable rear sight.( I mounted the same one from my GP to a single six)

They leave no witness mark on the frame when you remove it & go back to the stock sight! A true win win

Great choice
I have both the police service six and 6 inch security six. I favor the 6 inch. Makes the.most out of either cartridge.
I even picked up and exra cylinder and had TK customs do a 9mm conversion. Now I shout 9mm , 38 and 357 out of that 6 inch barrel. Very accurate.

This was my first revolver, it was love at first sight, and more love with every shot.

I'm loving seeing all these wooden grips on these GPs!

Do they fit the gun better than rubber grips, like Altamonts? I have an Altamont rubber grip with inserts, but I had to tape the hammer pivot pin underneath the grip because whenever I'd shoot it would start to shake itself loose. Do wood grips fit tight enough to prevent that? I'd love to get one for christmas or something.

I love the grip you have on that one, I don't think I've ever seen one like it.

I've got Hogue grips on mine. I never liked the feel of those rubber things.

I regret not buying the six inch. Still, I love mine. Possibly my favorite handgun these days. My trigger is very smooth. I love it. Congrats on buying one
