Revolvers are gaining some popularity amongst those involved in action pistol and other competitions. For many, it brings back a memory or two—for others it is just a challenge. Some shooters simply want to try something different. Ruger has answered this increase in demand for a solid revolver for match work with their new Ruger GP100 Match Champion.
Based on the proven GP100 platform it is rugged, well built, and reliable. The Match Champion adds a tuned action, contoured cylinder and Hogue hardwood grip. The slap-sided barrel includes a half-lug target crown and is topped with a fiber optic front sight. The rear sight is a Novak Lo-Mount carry sight, making it perfect for action pistol competition. Chambered in .357 Magnum it easily makes the cross over from the field of play to the real world.
Spending time on the range, the Match Champion certainly lives up to its name. Exceptionally accurate, it is also smooth, points fast, and is easy to control. The grips lock things in place, and sighting is excellent. The Novak Lo-Mount sight and fiber optic front make for a smooth transition from your favorite semi-automatic pistol. For those looking to move into the wheelgun division, this may be just the ticket.
