The Model Number for the Blued one was in a catalog probably a year ago. As far as I know it is not out yet. The blued one has a different front sight from what I remember about it. Probably a prototype picture of one.

My brother has a Stainless Steel Willey Clap GP100. We ran it by to see Ron Power (Power Custom). He went over it tuning a little here and their. Some serious polishing of a few parts, and a set of Wolff Springs. It is as nice as any Combat Tuned S&W.

It is my brothers Concealed Carry, and IDPA SSR Revolver.
The GP100 has the same cylinder size as a 686, so Safariland Speedloaders for a 686 work with a GP100.

My brother loves his.

Bob

"biggest selling point is its near indestructibility"

Ummm...no. GP100's can break just like any other revolver. Treat it well and it won't come up.

Ummmm... Yes. Any revolver can break, but the Ruger revolvers are stronger by design.

Stronger how? I do not see this specified by the cheerleaders. I just prefer to keep expectations realistic rather than parrot ideas.

People overemphasize this attribute when speaking of Ruger revolvers. I see a tendency on forums to expand the idea past a strong frame and cylinder. The small parts are important and break like any other gun. They are not indestructable at all and a double charge will burst a cylinder. That very thick cylinder wall on the Redhawk is a reloader's dream, but it can be pushed too far.
