Ruger announces the new Ruger GP100 Match Champion—a six-shot revolver designed with the competitor in mind. With its ergonomic enhancements and tuned action, the Match Champion delivers fast, accurate shots and takes the popular GP100 to the next level. Chambered in .357 Mag., but capable of firing .38 Spl., the Match Champion has a half-lug slab-sided barrel with an 11 degree target crown for competition accuracy, a chamfered cylinder and ejector, and custom Hogue hardwood grips with stippled sides and dual speed loader cuts for quick reloads. 

"Ruger has always been a popular choice for revolver shooters, and now we have a great platform for the competitive shooter who wants more out of a revolver," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. "The GP100 Match Champion has a number of features the competitive shooter wants, including polished springs and a polished hammer strut, combined with trigger and hammer shims for a trigger pull that will help deliver shots on target with ease," he added.

A Novak Lo-Mount Carry rear sight and fiber optic front sight create a great sight picture for both plates and targets, and the burnished trigger guard allows for smooth shooting all match long.
