Check out Ruger's new Super GP-100 on their website. An 8 shot 5.5" barrel 357 Magnum. I assume released today at the NRA Convention. Bob!! :mrgreen:

Ruger’s newest ‘custom shop’ release....interesting revolver, LCR looking cylinder; sleeve and shroud barrel; Super Redhawk internals....pricey though.

Also, other intro’s today....www.ruger.com

What I really like about both of my GP100 is the quick change front sight. I can't believe they put a pinned front sight on it.

They can call it the "Super GP100" if they wish, but I'll betcha it's on a version of the Super Redhawk frame! The GP100 and the Super Redhawk have always shared the same action, so saying they used the Super Redhawk's action in this thing is disingenuous altogether.

Remember, they ran into "crowding" problems when they brought out the ill-fated seven-shot GP100.

It's a "name game".

And it may be a nice gun.

I might be interested if it was in .44 Mag. I have asked for years for a Redhawk with the GP lockwork and grip stud.

That would essentially be a Super Redhawk without the funny extended frame front.

Interesting thought. Ruger is trying some new stuff, maybe this is it.

It's a very rare occasion I buy a brand new gun. Seems that trend will continue.

No doubt many will be interested in it though. I've got enough revolvers to shoot now.

Seems I'm the opposite of most folks here ..... that goofy peg grip design is hideous. :lol:

I have always liked the more "traditional" grip frame arrangement of the Redhawk, but the "single spring" action not so much. The "monopeg" thingy on the GP100 and Super Redhawk at least use a more conventional two-spring action, and you can get a bunch of different grips for it.

All JMHO of course. To each his own.

:mrgreen:

The Redhawk is the one gun that I could NEVER find a grip that felt right in my hand. That's why I like the "goofy peg grip", as there are several grips that feel great with that arrangement. I don't like the Super, as the barrel looks like a pipe sticking out of it. The Redhawk looks like a more normal revolver, but as mentioned the single spring made it hard to get a good trigger pull, while the two spring arrangement of the Super and GP make it pretty easy to get a trigger pull you want. So, all in all, I am somewhat excited about this announcement, with the exception of I have very little use for a 8 shot .357! And I think the barrel shroud is ugly, but I could live with it, if it was a .44 mag. JMHO

Still waiting for this gun as well, but in 45 Colt with a 6" barrel.

Well everybody has their opinion on what aspect they don't like. Here is mine: I like everything about this gun except the goofy peg grip.

This new GP100 is another example of a gun I have no interest in. But I'm glad a manufacturer is putting out a new revolver design.

Yes, particularly in view of the fact that it appears they were able to do it with a little reworking of an existing design. Some clever work there.

It's not the exact configuration I wanted or even something I'm interested in but many of us have been asking for an SRH with a standard Redhawk barrel for years. Hopefully it's just the first of many more to come.

The barrel looks like a dirt trap.
