RUGER GP 100 357 mag 3"?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have a 3" GP100? I was curious if they shoot dead on with 38's , I have one with the 4" and adjustable sights and it shoots really good.I didn't know how much difference there would be with one with fixed sights.I saw one I was thinking about getting.

I had the Wiley Clapp model for a time and liked it. It shot as good as any other GP and SP 3" I owned or own now.

Well, you'll just have to burn some ammo to find out. You never really know till you shoot.

Yeah, just don't want to spend $500 or so on one and it shoot to the left or right.

Ok, so I guess you can adjust the windage  on those.

I have a 3 inch with fixed sights and I like it quite well. It hits what I aim at from self defense type distance but I've never taken many shots from longer range. It's not a target gun but for home defense or a truck gun it's great. I did paint the front sight with orange fingernail polish so these old eyes could see it better.

Best of my knowledge, with fixed sights, the reason an SP or GP would shoot left or right is the barrel is over screwed into the frame.

If it happened, and you look, it should be obvious.

IMO going from (.357 to .38) point of impact shift would be more of an elevation change issue based on velocity and bullet weight.

I got a Taurus 357  605 that shoots both really good, also have a smith snubnose that shoots about 2-3" to the left. I have sent it back to them to get that fixed. I shoot mostly 38's out of all my 357's

      This past week I moved from VA to TN.  Prior to my move, I was offered a deal I had to take. My final act as a Virginia resident was a deal I worked with a gentleman to find a new home for this beautiful, unconverted gun.  Bluing is beautiful, grips are beautiful, couple nicks here and there.  Nice plum color on the loading gate.  Serial number 31610. Overall, very pleased with this one.  



      This particular Old Model Flattop configuration is rare and not your average Ruger.  Very excited to take this bad boy out!

      I always wanted a Sig P250.  I have eyed them for years and past on one or two that I later wished I would have bought. I won one on Gunbroker for what I thought was an amazing deal (about $250 OTD). It is used but in very good condition.  It’s a 40 subcompact and only came with one magazine and no box.  I picked it up yesterday to be surprised by the excellent condition and half-life night sights.  
      Call me crazy, but I actually wanted a .40 since my department has vowed to stick with them for a lot longer and I am swimming in .40 ammo. I seriously have about 3k rounds with most being hollow points. 
      Well, I went to the range today and was less than impressed.  My groups were the size of my fist at 10yards, but the failure to feed rate was about 5% or about 10 failures in 200 rounds.  I’m thinking it may be the magazine as the spring actually feels weak.  I was actually wanting to trim a compact grip to work with a subcompact slide; some of my attraction to this model. 
      I plan to try a Glock spring in the subcompact Sig mag tomorrow.
      I am tempted to go ahead and order a new compact mag and a compact grip hoping I can make it run.
      Anyone around Chattanooga got a P250/p320 mag I can borrow for testing?

      I found a good deal on a Beretta 92-FS Compact from Gunprime, so I ordered a pair of them. They shipped out quickly, and my FFL got them in just a couple of days. I've been looking for a 92 Compact for a while. But most of the places around here were either out of stock, or else they flat out wanted too much. I got these for $428.99 each, brand new in the box. A hell of a deal.
      They shipped with 2, 13 round magazines, and are Italian made guns. I replaced the plastic grips with the factory Beretta Walnut grips that I picked up from Gnarly Gorilla.
      The Walnut grips really richen up the looks of these Beretta's. I also got a few of the X-Grip Magazine Adapters from Greg Cote. They allow the use of the full size 15 and 17 round magazines in the compact's without sticking out of the bottom of the gun. And they're not much longer than the 13 round magazines supplied with the pinky rest. Now both my wife and I will each have our own. So all in all it was a good day.
      These are some pictures of them as they came from the factory. And with the Walnut grips and magazine adapters installed.
