10 rounds is impressive, but at 42 ounces, that is 1 heavy beast!

I like my 10 rd 617. That's an interesting addition from Ruger. I'd like to see one.

Heavy is good. It's not any heavier than a MkIII Hunter semi auto. I want one--but it wouldn't really fill any need. Let me know when they bring back the .327 Federal GP100.

I'd like to see one, too. Not sure how that would fit in with our shooting, given that we greatly prefer single actions for offhand revolver shooting, but I think it's about time Ruger came out with a mid-size DA in 22 LR.

I was thinking the same thing. They look like a $400 firearm.

GP-100s have never been a cheap revolver, only slightly cheaper in comparison to a Smith 686.

I might have jumped on this new 22 LR GP, a year, ago, but over the summer, Bill and I decided slim down on the types of guns we shoot. Was getting a little crazy switching gears from one type of gun to other all the time.

As for the handguns, DA revolvers are a distant third to semi-autos and single action revolvers, based on how well these types of guns shoot for us, so we've converted most of our DAs over to those types of guns. .

For the most part I don't like the looks of a DA. I guess I watched to many westerns compared to cop movies.

I'm guessing that the retail price will be near the same, or slightly less, than the S&W 617.

Something of a debate on GP versus 617 at Rimfire Central.

The .22 GP is heavy at 42 ounces, but the 617 is 44.2 oz.. GP is just a little cheaper than the Smith. List price is tough, $100 more than a .357 GP? In the SP101, it's .22 version is $40 more than .357.

The SP .22 is really too heavy for a .22 at 30 ounces. I'll keep my 24 ounce Bearcats.

Thanks for the link, Cuyler.

Funny thing you should mention the SP, Bearcat. We decided that there was nothing our SP101 in 22 LR could do that our Bearcat couldn't do, better - for our shooting - so the SP disappeared along with most of our DAs. I carry the Bearcat quite a bit, these days, when walking the dogs. Likely be a similar situation between our Single Sixes and the new GP100 in 22 LR. I have no doubt the new GP is the typical excellent GP, but we're trying to simplify with our revolver shooting by staying with SAs.

Very nice, It must shoot like an air gun. I shot a GP100 with 38 special a while back and it was very mild.

Thanks also for the link. It looks like a nice gun.

I would take my 617 over that Ruger though, just because I generally prefer Smiths.

As a trail gun, as he suggested, I would take a model 34 4" or a similar J frame .22. Much lighter and still 6 shots.

I sure do agree with that. If I was going to carry around an almost 3 pound gun, it wouldn't be a .22.
I'd imagine they would be a good plinker though, but I've got plenty of those already.

I like the Bearcats better than any guns I've ever owned, but I'm keeping the SP. Everyone should own a DA .22 revolver, especially in stainless these days, but unfortunately the gun companies don't know that.

Taurus, the lack of quality is famous. Charter's is pinned together, and the center plate of the grip, which includes the trigger guard, is plastic. S&W's are part aluminum, except the hefty 617. The 63 is a lot like the SP, but the SP is a Ruger! Why no .22 model 60?

So I have the SP, which is just an adapted .357. Heavier than it needs to be, with a crane latch it doesn't need, and a FO sight that looks big enough for a rifle. Rubber tube grip, where I'd like the old style two panels.

My ideal would be for Ruger to do a Bearcat sized top-break DA .22.

Ouch! At $700 I would rather spend that on a bargain basement AR15.
