How rare or unusual are these?
Were they carried by Canadian RCMP ["Mounties"]..?
Was or is Davidson's the exclusive purveyor?

Going on memory (RENE stuff home) but wanna say there were two 5" models and were Lipsey's models.

They were NOT RCMP guns.
Ruger has failed to get any RCMP contracts. They tried in the early '80s with a special 5" .38spl Service Six but failed to win the contract.
Some fixed sight GP100s appear to have been used by some Canadian municpal police departmemts.

whoo hoo! I picked up the 5" GP100!

The single-action trigger is smooth and light without and creep or drama, and the DA stages as good as any S&W or Colt i've ever shot.. I'm quite pleased overall except for the rough finish. It looks like it might be a "friday" manufactured gun, or was buffed-out by a rookie. I think some 0000 steel wool should remedy that


I wonder if Wolf springs would make it shoot even better..? Should i spend the time and money?
