In what is becoming one of the most revitalized cartridges in the firearms industry, Ruger has announced their newest GP100 Match Champion chambered in 10mm Auto. This comes off the heels of Ruger unveiling a Super Redhawk in 10mm Auto at SHOT Show 2018. Now as we head into NRA Show 2018 we have another unique revolver added to the fold.

The GP100 Match Champion is acknowledged as being one of Ruger’s best revolvers and the closest model to custom shop quality in a standard, catalog configuration.

What typifies this revolver from so many others is the Hogue Hardwood Stippled grips and the Fiber Optic Front Sight. Both of which are eye-catching, but also add a lot of utility and accuracy as well.

Ruger further outlines what makes this revolver worth potentially adding to your collection.

The GP100 Match Champion in 10mm Auto stands out against other revolvers with its polished and optimized internals, a centering boss on the trigger and centering shims on the hammer to produce a smooth double-action trigger pull and crisp and consistent let-off. Together, the adjustable rear sight and quick-change fiber optic front sight create a great sight picture for rapid acquisition on both plates and targets. With its factory-tuned action and ergonomic enhancements, The Match Champion delivers fast, accurate shots and takes the popular GP100 to the next level.

The complete specification list and expanded details as provided by Ruger can be read below. With this laundry list of specs, features and benefits you can get yourself a Ruger GP100 Match Champion in 10mm Auto at the retail price of $969.

      @Mazryonh I fell that the first shpt with full 10mm would be the same as with .40s&w. Of course the next shots would be slowed down because of the heaver recoil. I have always loved moon clip revolvers and no doubt will love this one.
