Ruger introduces the new Ruger GP100 chambered in .22 LR. This ten-round revolver offers an array of features designed for target shooting, small game hunting and recreational shooting.

Featuring a 5.50-inch, half-lug barrel for improved handling and lighter weight, the Ruger GP100 in .22 LR is both durable and reliable. This new GP100 has an improved fire control system that uses a lighter mainspring than previous Ruger double-action .22 LR revolvers.

"Ruger has always been on the cutting edge of revolver technology, with the first polymer revolver, and now with a .22 LR revolver that has the same light trigger pull as our centerfire GP100 revolvers," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO.

The GP100 in .22 LR features a windage and elevation adjustable rear sight with a white outline, a light-gathering fiber optic front sight and the original full-size GP100 rubber grips with hardwood inserts for a very distinctive look. The all stainless-steel construction makes this GP100 an easy firearm to maintain and one that is certain to be handed down from one generation to the next.
