Our Assessment: This Super GP-100 is a recent firearm from Ruger that, while bearing the GP-100 name, utilizes the action of the Super Redhawk allowing for a two-spring lock work arrangement for more double-action cycling and a larger cylinder—eight glorious rounds can be loaded into this revolver. This is a handsome revolver with a black stainless PVD finish that is ostensibly for glare reduction, but if we’re being honest, it’s just real purdy. This revolver is in excellent overall condition with only minor wear or evidence of much use. It is range ready, with a sturdy black briefcase making for easy transport. Fledgling target or competition shooters would do well to bid on this fine firearm. Good luck and happy bidding!
