I'm digging the new Match Champion GP100s. I would love for Ruger to put out a .22lr or .22WMR version to match the .357 Match Champions so I could grab a pair.

I currently have a SP101 in .357, a LCR in .357, a LCR in .22lr, a JC Higgins Ranger in .22lr, and a S&W 66-1 in .357. My revolver game is weak.

Good idea on the 22 GP101. Get the Match? It's a more special version, and these things are built to last multiple lifetimes. Sounds like you have a decent collection going, I wouldn't call it weak! I have more, but didn't have a pic of all of them. Revolvers just have a way of seducing me, I can't explain it!

If they would do a GP100 Match Champion in .22lr, it would be a 10-shot revolver. That's on par with most semi-auto .22lr handguns on the market, plus I could shoot it single action and the thing plain looks good.

I wanted the Wiley Clapp GP100 in stainless until I saw the finish. I still love the look of the gun, but I wish they went with the same stainless finish that's on the Match Champion. The Wiley Clapp stainless finish looks like it's painted on, much like the 10/22 receivers when they use stainless barrels.

There are several revolvers on my wish list to pick up, but semi autos have had my exclusive attention these past few years due to threats of legislation. Now that Trump is president, I get to make my revolver collection great again. I need a good pair of single action cowboy revolvers too.

Sounds like a good plan.

I've been wanting to get a Cowboy single action for awhile, but don't know enough about the genre' to know what to get.

You have any thoughts on that? Ideally, it would be chambered in 357 / 38 so I don't have to inventory up on a new round like 45 Colt etc

That was made in their "Tula" factory, which is a good thing. Shoots a smokin' round and holds 7 of them. Good stash / HD firearm ... leave 'em loaded for decades.

It is a special edition of "the twelve revolvers"
1 of 500.

It has an etching on the sideplate of a cowboy who got knocked off his horse by a big bull and he is reaching for his faithful smith and Wesson to take the bull out during this "Critical Moment" before the bull takes him out.

My "critical moment" was may 6 1996. And I was thankful for my weapon that day.

I really love the look of the old single action Navy copies made by Griswold for Confederate troops, such as the ones used by Mr. Cullen Bohannan in the AMC series Hell on Wheels. Something about that brass speaks to me.

Very utilitarian looking. A working man's gun. Looks mean, and probably has the bite to match the bark.

Not sure what I'll end up with though. I'm indifferent on the caliber at this point.

I never wanted one until watching Walking Dead. Yes, I am a fan boy for Rick. 

Always, I will get one-a big long shiny one in 44mag. No doubt.
Dooo it!

Nicky G ... on those revolvers you posted ... "Civil War" genre' ... are they black powder? If not, what is the function of the ramrod on them?
