With an 8-round triple-locking PVD coated cylinder and target crowned 6-inch barrel, Ruger’s newest GP100 revolver is ready for serious 9mm Luger fans with competition on their minds.

Based on the Ruger Super Redhawk action, the GP100 series has long been the company’s go-to for competition and hunting wheel guns. Their newest model, which uses a cylinder and extractor cut for moon clips to speed up reloading, sports a 6-inch half-lug sleeved and shrouded barrel with an 11-degree target crown for “competitive-level” accuracy.

A Custom Shop model, the new revolver has polished and optimized internals, a centering boss on the trigger and centering shims on the hammer. The revolver comes standard with adjustable rear and a quick-change fiber optic front sight.

The overall length is 11-inches while weight is 45.6-ounces, a factor that will no doubt help mitigate recoil impulse.

The GP100 Competition Revolver ships in a custom hard case with three full moon clips as well as a clip unloading tool. Ruger says the ejector and chamber mouths have a light chamfer to aid loading with included moon clips.

MSRP is $1549.
