If the Ruger GP100 has one thing going for it, it’s this: it was designed from the beginning to be able to handle an unlimited number of full power .357 Magnum rounds. In contrast to this, many other magnum revolvers are designed to fire only a limited number of rounds before they will need to be set down to cool off, or else they can run into problems like the cylinder locking up.
Available in either six or seven shot configurations, the GP100 is without question one of the most durable and overbuilt .357 Magnum double action revolvers on the market today. It features the traditional Ruger push button cylinder release on the side of the frame, and is available in both blued and stainless steel configurations. Barrel length options ranges from three to four to six inches.
