I Love my GP100 very much. It is very accurate and the trigger I find to be just right for me. I actually find the trigger as good as my S&W 686 PC Competitor. When I go shooting the 686 stays home almost every time and the GP100 goes with me.
I was content with the straight forward stock GP100 until someone on another site started talking and showing pictures of the GP100 Talo edition. That un-fluted cylinder I just Love. I know not every one does but I sure do. It has weighed on my mind ever since I saw it.
So I asked the LGS how much and found the price reasonable but they were all allocated he said. Told me that he would have to call around to get one. I asked if he would and when he called Lipseys they had just received one and it will be at the LGS today Friday the 23 of Oct.
I traded a Sig P320 in on it that I really was not all that impressed with and told him that I would pay the rest off in layaway which was no problem with him since he and I do a great deal of business to gather.
Anyway I can't wait to see it today and get it out really soon. Just wanted to spout off. Happy, Happy, Happy, I will now own 2 GP100 in 6" barrel. Pictures to come when I get it out of jail.

Well finally got to pick up my TALO GP today. As I thought the grips I just hate , way to big for my hand. I had an old pair of wood grips for a GP100 and put them on the gun. These grips do not look very good due to the wood putty in the back. I chipped the wood from trying to get them on the gun once. They were to tight. They fit really good now though and feel real good in my hand. I will order another set next week after recoup some money after the gun. I painted the front sight white and have a red ramp sight due in the mail today. I kinda like the front sight look on it though, don't know if I will use the red ramp front sight or not know. I have the Red Ramp front sight on my other GP and it works really well also.

Here are the current ruff pictures, I will get better pictures this weekend when I am off work. plus I will get to break it in also. Right now it does not even have the burn ring from the factory on the cylinder front.
I also had to adjust the back sight to center it. It was way to one side from the factory.

That unfluted cylinder is so very cool. I would LOVE a 4" version with Hogue grips. That would be my ideal gun.

Jason... Are you listening? :mrgreen:

Guy's I ordered the new grips yesterday. It will take atleast three weeks to get them from Thailand but it will be worth the weight.
