Issues with 7-shot GP-100 resolved?

I've been wanting to get a 7-shot GP-100 but from what I recall early production runs were plagued with problems due the the cylinder spacing not being wide enough or something along that order.

I haven't been following it lately so I'm checking here to see if this problem has been resolved and/or which early serial numbers I might want to avoid.

Never mind, I found the "GP-100 7-shot Still Not Fixed" thread. I guess that answers my question. What a shame.

Unfortunately, that issue will never be fixed. It would involve Ruger making the frame of the GP100 larger - which will not happen. There is nothing wrong with the 6-shot version GP100s and that is the way to go.
