    I just added a new wheelie to the house a couple of weeks ago. Allow me to introduce my KGP-141.

    It's a keeper for sure, shoots very well.

    You will enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine. I love revolvers.

    I got a fixed sighted one from Mark at summitgunbroker.com and its a nich 4 inch stainless that use to be a confiscated gun before Mark got it. It had gouges mostly over the GP but,my ffl had a gunsmith buff it out for a $40.00 dollar investment and,its a keeper.

    Sweet! Although I own a couple semi-autos, there is just something about a revolver.
    Yeah, I also have a few revolvers.
    Congrats. You have chosen well.

    Wish I hadn't sold my 4" - GP100
    it had a fiber optic front site...
    & after the trigger job, was an even sweeter shooter.
    (besides, I think they're indestructible!)

    I wonder why GP100s come with Hogue grips nowadays? And when you go to the Ruger website, the old style grips are available as accessories. WTF, over?

    Old ones are cool. Hogue ones absorb recoil really well, which is also nice. I like these Rugers.

    Yup, I just added the same gun to my collection after finding it in a sporting goods store on a recent hunting trip. Mine has the old style grips. It looks good next to my SRH. :supergrin:
