So Ruger will be launching a new variant of the GP100, which they're calling the GP100 Match Champion. I'm fairly certain that they have some sort of dream harvesting technology out there, because this gun looks like GP100 I've been wanting ever since I started shooting revo seriously. Slab sided half underlug barrel, chamfered charge holes, checkered wood stocks with no finger grooves, proper sights, it's just amazing.

I understand that not everyone "gets" revolvers, but for the people that do and who want a serious match ready gun right out of the box, this going to be really hard to beat. If it had a DAO hammer, it'd be perfect. I am really happy that Ruger is getting after the serious competition revolver market. Since this gun competes heads up with the 686SSR, my hope is that they'll bring back the Redhawk, chamber in .45 ACP and cut it for moonclips from the factory. That'd be HAWT.
