U.S.A.-( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is pleased to introduce the 8-round, Ruger Custom Shop Super GP100 competition revolver chambered in .357 Magnum. With its factory-tuned action and pleasing ergonomics, the Custom Shop Super GP100 takes the traditional Ruger revolver to the next level and is ready to compete, right out of the box.

The Custom Shop Super GP100 features polished and optimized internals, a centering boss on the trigger and centering shims on the hammer, which combine to produce a smooth, double-action trigger pull and a crisp, consistent let-off. Together, the adjustable rear sight and quick-change fiber optic front sight create a great sight picture for rapid target acquisition.

The stainless steel frame, cylinder and barrel are PVD coated to provide corrosion resistance, durability and reliability. Utilizing the renowned action of the Super Redhawk, the Super GP100 also contains a two-spring lockwork arrangement providing an even double-action cycle and reliable ignition.

The half-lug 5.50″ sleeve and shroud barrel is contoured for fast manual ejection and features an 11° target crown for competitive-level accuracy. Aesthetic cuts in the barrel shroud and cylinder help reduce overall weight and improve balance. The cylinder and extractor are cut for moon clips to speed reloading during intense competition. The .357 Magnum chambering allows the revolver to accept factory .38 Special cartridges.

“The Ruger Custom Shop continues to produce competition-ready firearms,” said Ruger President and CEO Chris Killoy. “The new Super GP100 is yet another example of our Custom Shop’s fine craftsmanship, and will allow our customers to compete at the highest levels.”

The revolver is complimented by a Hogue® wood grip that creates a natural connection between the user and the firearm and is hand polished to a smooth finish. The peg-style grip frame also easily accommodates custom Super Redhawk or GP100 grips.

I bought a GP141 in it’s 2nd year of production. The origional rubber with wood insert grips fit my hand like a glove. It’s a heavy revolver. The double action trigger is stiff but smooth as butter. The adjustable rear sight is getting a little hard to see for my ageing eyes. All this being said, I love this revolver. Never failed!


That thing looks like the combined the worst looking parts of a Redhawk, GP100 and the Super Redhawk.

Half lug barrel? Shrouded?
Fiber optics sights look great, until they BREAK (all the bloody time)

Somebody please skool me. I’ll be the 1st to admit I’m not a revolver person, but I thought moon clips were for rimless cartridges? Do they facilitate speed loading, even on rimmed cartridges?


Been in use for some time by competition shooters using smith n and l frames.the cylinder is milled so the clip is recessed and the outer edge supports the rim of the round
It’s all about the reload speed

What is the rate of twist

Get Out

1:16″ RH


I don’t understand, what means rate of twist?

Old 1811

Rate of twist is the pitch of the rifling. A 1:16″ rate of twist means the rifling makes one complete 360-degree turn (one trip around the bore, so to speak) in 16 inches.


On the street price will be around $1350. Completely competitive with S&W 627 offerings for a better pistol.

What makes me pissed is I bought a 627 two months ago because Ruger didn’t offer this. I will swap marques though.

I just bought a Lipseys exclusive, 5” 10mm to shoot Limited 6 with. It is what this is based off of.

I love my gp100 I have stainless with 4 inch full lug barrel. The rubber houge grip fits my hand like a glove I did change out front sight for the fiber optic which helped tremendously. I dont think I want to see the msrp for this though as im sure its well over a grand.


What’s the trigger pull pounds?

Brian campbell

Exelent, needs checkered grips for more stability. My kind of weapon, 8 rounds instead of six. I
Would be willing to help you test it. I love my LCP in .380, but would be willing to yrade it in on this.


Also, I see no way to mount an optic for open class


Wig a Tinny mount. Piece of cake.


Actually, smooth grips are a necessity for competition reloads (USPSA/ICORE) if you “reload strong (right) handed. Not so if you reload weak (left) handed. These are similar to Michulek grips (with a palm swell?). What I object to is the ridiculous MSRP. If you want to compete with Smith 929 you need to offer 9mm and a financial incentive. Whatever happened to Ken Jorgensen?


Miculek…excuse me


What is the MSRP I was unable to find it

Dave Krueger



He tetired.

Pete L

He retired.

Jerry Miculek, who is the best present day revolver competitor, some say the best ever with a revolver, uses smooth grips as do a lot of other high ranking competitors.
Your thoughts on this fall short of reality.

Greg Reiber

The awesome Grips on the standard GP100 is one of my favorite things about, I will leave it up in the Air till trying the new Grips for myself. I am definitely excited though, custom shop Competition, with 8 shot moon clips, HECK YEAH !


I’m interested. What is the retail price of the revolver?


A great idea by Ruger, the Super GP100 looks awesome. The obvious question is now when will this Super GP100 be
offered in 44 Magnum for handgun hunting?


What’s with the moon clips? There is no place on a .38/357 case to put them. I have two GP100’s, a 4″ and a 6″ (manufactured 25 years apart) and I love them both but what’s with the lighter front end on a .357. To increase muzzle rise? Mine are both stainless steel so I’m fortunate I didn’t need some fancy coating to prevent rust. Wait, I thought that is what “stainless” in stainless steel meant. Never could understand the reason for a barrel sleeve when you could just have a barrel. Must be a cost cutting “improvement.” What I… Read more »


Joe, No place on a .38/.357 case? so how have I been using them for the last 7 odd years in competition?
I’m in love with my GP-100 and can find nothing to whinge about.
From what you say it sounds like you could be put in the garden of Eden with identical, bisexual twins, getting multiple orgasms 4 times a day and still find something to bitch about!

Danny Landrum

A competition gun shouldn’t have such smooth slick grips. Fail.


Yes, it should.
