Ruger Introduces Custom Shop
Super GP100 Competition Revolver
(ArmsVault.com) – 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.

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.
The revolver ships in a waterproof, fitted hard case and includes three moon clips, a Ruger Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, challenge coin, cleaning cloth, gun peg and decal.
