The Ruger GP100 has long had the reputation of being an extremely rugged and utilitarian revolver.  Our Sales Manager was showing off his newly acquired Colt Python one day and it struck us that a GP100 with a high polish blue finish was something that needed to be done.  The Hogue rubber grips were replaced with nicely figured wood grips and the package came out better than we had ever hoped.  As a bonus, Ruger high polishes both the trigger and hammer, resulting in a nice, smooth, double action trigger pull.  Many owners of the Royal Phoenix have commented to me that these guns have the best out of the box actions they have ever seen on a GP100.  I think the polished parts play a major role in this.  With all the matte finished, plastic and rubber part guns out there, it was refreshing to offer a gun that harkens to the days of mirror blue finishes and figured wood grips.
