    The RUGER GP/100 in 357Mag is Out-Standing with a 4"Bbl. New or Used.

      In total agreement with Treestand, would only add to look for one with adjustable sights.

        A friend (LEO) has one for his carry off-duty gun and likes it.

          They are a pretty well-built revolver. Triggers are so-so to someone that cut their teeth on Smiths. They are not underbuilt. If you've never fired a .357 before, be aware that full-power loads have some pop to them. Big fireball and percussive WHAP! I could feel it in my sinus' with a 6 inch 686. But, you can always load down or use 38 specials. Everyone should have a 357 in my opinion.

          PS: Why are so many lawmen named "LEO?" Good name, but still...

              I have one in 4" SS, with Wilson Combat trigger and springs, Hogue racing grips, and Wilson sights. My other GP is 6" blued version with gunsmith-worked 2-pound trigger, factory sights (adjustable).

              The 4" has helped me win numerous 7-pin competitions for revolvers. The 6" has taken deer and a few coyotes and foxes, and won several turkey shoots.

              I've been through plenty of revolvers, and I choose GP for .357

              Hard to find a better .357. They are fairly heavy and thus are not ideal for personal defense carry, IMO.

                Make that 5-pin, not seven.

                  I have one w/adjust. sights- great piece! I scoped it, but realized I liked it better without; .38's make it a nice plinker too (assuming you can find .38 rounds these days....or any pistol round for that matter). And the beauty of it is- it's a revolver- I've never heard of one jamming, or stove-piping a round!
