Ruger Introduces the GP100 in .22 LR

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce 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″ 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.

  1. Thank you Ruger! Been waiting for one of these for a long time. Love they used the original GP style grips. Never did like the Houge style grips.

  2. I really dig my SP101 in 22lr with 8 chambers in the cylinder, 4.2″ barrel, & much lighter weight ( about 31 ozs. ) versus this new GP 100. Having said that – I’m very very curious about the detailed specifics of the “lighter mainspring” of the new GP mentioned above. Would appreciate any insight on the details. Thanks.

  3. Love how they mention the ‘light trigger pull’… The SP-101 in 22LR (which I expect this to replace) has a 15 pound trigger, making it unusable for teaching kids to shoot.
