    Man oh man, this baby's sweet. :cool: I can't wait to get it to the range. I don't know who does the work for Talo, but it seems to a damn nice job. Here's a couple of crappy cell phone pics right after I picked it up.

    I got mine last week and today its on its way back to Ruger. I shot it with Remington 125 grain and Magtech 158 grain 357's, and both are hard to eject. The Remingtons even split about 2 cases per cylinder. I'm not too happy right now.

    Sorry to hear that. This is my 3rd GP100 and the other two were/are great guns that are as reliable as it gets. Sounds like an ammo issue if cases are splitting. I can't how that can be gun related. Also, hard to eject cases, seem to also be ammo related. I'll be interested to see what Ruger says and does. They have great customer service from what I hear.

    Not sure about the grips, but otherwise it's a fine looking handgun!

    They're different and feel great. Kind of a throwback to the original GP100 grips, plus a little checkering and some rubber "engraving".

    I think it's the finger checkering pattern that throws me. I'm sure they're comfy though.

    If the chambers in the cylinder are oversized (perhaps caused by the cutter chattering then the marks polished out) it will split cases and be difficult to extract.

    before I sent it back I would test to see if it happend in the same chambers.

    A friend of mine picked one up a few days ago. We shot the heck out of it yesterday. Shoots great, and hits close to point of aim with everything. I think it lives up to the hype.

    Those look incredible! What are the grips on the SP101?

    Wrong. If cases are splitting, the cylinders are probably too big and out of spec.
