I'd sure like to see this in a .45 Colt model or maybe .480. Hope one is around the corner at a bit lower price.

Wait a minute, you're not buying a Ruger because they dropped the Sturm???



Well, I do have a newer GP100 without "Sturm" on the barrel and it seems to be a good firearm.

I guess the reason I say "Sturm Ruger" needs to be on the barrel is because of the lack of quality control displayed over the last few years.
I'm not one to buy into "the customer service is the best" train of thought. Customer service should be a given with any manufacturer, and used as the exception, not the rule.

IMHO, Ruger needs to fix what they CURRENTLY do to acceptable standards and THEN work on putting new models on the market. After several years, Ruger has displayed no effort to insure a firearm leaves the factory up to the standards that Sturm, Ruger built their reputation on.

As always, your mileage may vary. :)

Are you certain this one DOESN'T say Sturm, Ruger & Co. on it somewhere?

:roll:


Quite sure. :)

Just for the sake of information, I'll ask how it is you are sure of that. Have you actually seen & handled one? If so, what was your opinion on fit, finish, etc?

I fully agree with the criticism addressed to the deletion of Sturm's name and the "S" from the trademark and various Ruger products. I miss the "S" in the medallions on all the new handguns, and believe it is considerably lacking in respect for the guy who coughed up the money to put Bill Ruger in business.

I have several Rugers from the last few years. One of which is one of the most accurate handguns I've ever fired. Freedom Arms accurate. IMHO, 99% of the issues people encounter could've been eliminated with a thorough inspection before filling out the 4473, which should be done with any firearm.

Good Lord, Alexander Sturm has been gone a long, long time. Sure, his investment was important in the beginning and it was an honorable thing for Bill Ruger to do to leave his name in there for as long as they did but let's get real. It ain't Sturm that made Ruger what it is today.

Without Sturm, there might not have been a Ruger of today.

Every page on Ruger's website, all the Instruction Manuals (including the one for the new gun here in question) and in fact all my New Model guns carry the inscription of Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. I have no idea what team of lawyers thought it would be a good idea to remove the "S" from the trademark "Phoenix" symbol, but IMHO it was in the poorest of taste. Makes no difference how long Mr. Sturm has been gone, Henry Ford has been gone a long time, too, and yet his name still graces the hood/grille ornament of all the products of his namesake company.

I have bought some New Models with the "S-less" grip medallions, but I did so with a mental tip of my hat to Alexander Sturm . . . who designed the "Phoenix", by the way.

I would like to see a .41mag version of this minus the 2 piece barrel.

Hey, look, a video from the NRA show . . .

Be patient, they eventually show/discuss the gun.

I dunno, I kind of like it, but I'd have to see it up close and personal. Of course some range reports also. Price is what it is, if yea like something well enough price can be paid. Good to see a company making a variety of choices.

I kinda like the Super GP, actually. Looks a little Blade Runner-ish.

I've been hoping Ruger would do this for a long time. Redhawk upper with the more tuneable two spring action and grip stud frame of the SP/GP/Super style. I don't really care for this race version though. Do it in stainless, 4" or 5" barrel in 45 Colt and I'll buy one.
It figures they bring this out now...I just bought a 4" 45 Colt Redhawk.

I'm waiting for the 20 round Super GP-100 on a redhawk frame in 327.

I kid, I kid . I think it will appeal to a more "tactical" group. Im curious how the action feels on one of these custom shop guns.

The new Super GP-100 at 48 ounces is a big boy.
