    I have the 6" stainless in .357 and it's great. These guns are overbuilt and will last you lifetime.

    The Ruger GP-100 is a great gun and I've fired over a thousand rounds in one that I owned.The only reason I went to the S&W 686 is that it works better for my grip.Both of them are quality revolvers.

    There's only one thing wrong with a GP100, as far as I'm concerned. And that is that it is not made by Smith & Wesson.:D I own a Security Six, which is a very nice gun. I also own a 686+, and it is even nicer.

    But as everyone has said, if you want a GP100, go for it! Don't bother with the .327 BTW. I seriously doubt that caliber is going to catch on. The only "benefit" it offers is an extra round in a J frame. You can get 6,7, or even 8 round .357s in full-sized revolvers these days.

    GP100 is a great gun. $400 for a 6" in very good condition isn't bad.
    Around my parts they sell for $550 new.

    If the gun is in like new condition I would think it's a fair deal.It would be even more fair if he threw some ammo or a holster in on the deal.If it's in exellent condition most dealers would give him about $250.00 and sell it for about $400.00 plus tax.
