    I picked this up last week, sweet little revolver, too bad they're not still being made.

    I ordered one of those in 357. The store called back a few eeks later and told me they were no longer unavailable. I ended up with the then new GP100.

    Nice gun.

    The first handgun that I bought was a Ruger Speed Six .357 Mag.

    You can't wear a Ruger out.

    If I were going to carry a revolver for ccw, this would be my choice........throw in a few moon clips, and it's darn near ideal......

    Nice score........very nice score!

    I have one in.357 and I traded it back and forth with a relative when I was short on funds and got it back a bunch of years back and now keeping it for the rest of my life.

    No, 'wear out' is the correct terminology for using the gun to the point of parts becoming sloppy.

    Ware would imply goods or product to be shipped.

    Just to be a grammar nazi there for a second. ;)


    I wish they made the GP100 or at least the SP101 in 9mm, that is a good find.

    My most favourite gun manufacturers all went out of business. These are not the days for quality and expensive labour.

    Korth is somewhat back but in a different factory and moved a few states away. They are even using a sleeved barrel since many years.

    That's a Ruger that would actually interest me. I wanted a 9mm moon clip 6-shot revolver for IDPA, before they changed the revolver rules to favor the .45.

    "Made" as in past tense, they "did" at one point.
