Which is better Ruger GP100 or Smith and Wesson 686?

The Smith and Wesson is more refined and features a trigger that is smooth in double action use, not to mention inhumanly perfect when fired single-action.

Which is better Ruger GP100 or SP101?

The SP101 makes the better concealed carry gun. The GP100, though, is an absolute tank of a pistol. It excels as a packing gun, home defense gun and otherwise carry gun for any purposes other than concealed carry, because it’s enormous.

What is the difference between a Ruger SP101 and GP100?

What do you think about the GP100 Match Champion?

The bang-switch on the GP100 Match Champion is close to a pound and a half heavier than anything I own, coming in right around 12 lbs. Aside from being heavy, the trigger also had some pretty horrendous grit and hitches, at least initially.

Does the GP100 Match Champion have a Novak rear sight?

The GP100 Match Champion is also available with a fixed Novak rear sight, but I was glad to have the movable option. My complaint about the rear sight: the assembly is pinned rather than screwed onto the gun. After the first 100 rounds fired, the pin began to walk itself out.

Is the Ruger SP101 match champion cylinder chamfer?

BTW, for those wanting the Match-Champion treatment on a carry gun, the company recently released a SP101 Match Champion. As Greyson pointed out above, the cylinder chamfering seems to be standard on Ruger revolvers now. I wasn’t aware of this, so you might not lose as much as you think with that Cabela’s GP.

What is the difference between SP and GP grips?

Reason being the ‘peg’ slides into the grip and is then attached via screw in base of grip. However, there is a tremendous difference between the Sp and GP grips, the SP being smaller and shorter. (A major reason for my not buying one: large carpenter’s hands.) So it may be possible to fit SP grips onto a GP.
