It is also ergonomically designed with finger grooves and a relatively large size that accommodates a wide range of hand sizes comfortably.

Blue GP100 4.2 inch barrel - solid. Love the blue finish on this model. Stock grip does soak up the recoil. Grips easy to change to smaller for carry or wood for a different look. Lock-up is tight, trigger DA is smooth on this example.

Ruger Tough!

This GP 100 seems like a real brute! I suppose you could break it but you would have to work hard at it.

Easy to shoot even the big bad 357mag. I have been warned of. The recoil was very manageable. I had very good control first time I fired it. I have"t a critical word to say, it"s really enjoyable to shoot.

I have the 7 inch barrel in stainless. Easy to shoot and clean. Very accurate. A bit on the heavy side. But, that helps with the recoil from the magnum rounds.

Good value for a large revolver. The stock grip is ugly as sin but does a good job accepting recoil. Buy some aftermarket grips and the whole look of the gun will change. It's heavy, but it's supposed to be. Full 357 loads are a joy to shoot and 38's hard
