Though new to the forum, not new to the Rugers. Have a KP345 and am waiting to pick up my GP100 6" blue. I found this forum by chance and wish i had found it years ago. First off I wish to thank Everyone that has been on this forum for their discussions. Due to all of you, I have gotten answers to many of my questions that otherwise would not have. Have already ordered the marbles front sight and spring kit for the GP, and I also know I will field strip and inspect it as soon as I get it to check for any shavings or problems before I have trouble. Being a previous owner of the Python 6" nickel, (still kick myself everday for selling it), im sure the GP will perform the way i expect, due to all of your responses and opinions. Thanks again!
