$600 for SS 4' GP100?

Is $599 OTD for a new SS 4inch GP100 a good deal? Or should I shop around more?

prices on everything are shaky right now. A few years back (09 i think) i paid 550 for a 4" gp bought from a guy at work that was used (made in 1995 but looked like brand new). It came with a nylon holster and 3 boxes of ammo. I then traded it +$100 for a new (2012) 6" both SS. You can get a gp for less sure but i dont think 600 is too terribly high for one expecialy if its SS.

I think that's less than I paid for my new 4" GP100.

I bought a used one this spring for $450, not counting shipping and the FFL transfer fee. There are better deals out there I believe.

About a year and a half ago I got a used 6" SS one in excellent condition from an individual for $425. I wouldn't worry about getting a used one of those beasts. You'll get a nice broken in trigger to boot.

The mark up on guns can be ridiculous, I bought a brand new gp100 6" ss through a good friend that's an ffl and he charged me his cost only, I paid 389.99, that was 6 or 8 years ago so I'm sure things have gone up. I bought 4 brand new revolvers that day, the GP, a single six .22 .22mag, ruger sbh .30 carbine, and a ruger 4 5/8 SBH .44 Mag, they all had to go back to ruger for repair except the single six! They had installed the wrong ejector on the .30 carbine so the ejector rod wouldn't even go through the cylinder, the .44 base pin kept jumping out and would lock the cylinder up, everytime I shot it I had to push the pin back in, the GP100 shot so far to the left that the rear sight blade was as far adjusted to the right as it would go (it stuck way outside of the ramp) and that just barely brought the POI to the left side of the bullseye so I was out of adjustment, Ruger replaced the barrel on that one. Fairly dissapointing day that was!

Buy the $600 GP. When you find all those other better deals, buy them and re-sell the one you have now at a hefty profit.

I was too cheap to buy a nice 4 inch 70's blue speed six last year for $400. My, friends, told me that price was alittle high. Eemmhhmmm. After a dozen gunshows guess what I havn't even seen much less buy at any price?

Some 2 years ago the LGS had a 80's 4 inch ss Service Six, 95%, at $600. A dozen tire-kickers came in told us were were smoking something. Result...next day it left the shop at full price. Who's smoking something now?

I paid just a wee bit over $600 OTD for my stainless GP 6" -- that was retail from my local gun store about 4 or 5 months ago ----

$599 OTD, yeah, I'd be tempted if I really like it. The GP is a very fine gun and will certainly give you a lifetime of service. You. Might be able to find a better deal bit that isn't a terrible price.

Shop around! You should be able to get a lightly used GP100 either 4" or 6" for around $450. And, I wouldn't mind buying a used Ruger anything, especially for revolver.

Dealer cost on a 4" Stainless GP-100 in .357 Mag is now $500. So the dealer has to make alittle on it. If you can get one for $575 I'd grab it. JMHO

That's not a bad price. If you want it, get it. I wouldn't feel bad paying that much for a GP100.

From an LGS not bad. Things right now are messed up as others said. You can get them cheaper if you are patient though.

Prices and supply of just about everything is quite messed up right now. Not a great price, but if you can afford it, go for it. Better prices may, or may not show up.

That's market value where I live - IF you can find one. I haven't seen one in 6 months anywhere in a 3 state area that I check

At $599 OTD (Total price). The dealer is making next to nothing. The gun cost wholesale $500.00. He then he has to pay shipping from his wholesaler ($25-$30 dollars ?). Unless he gets free shipping or goes and picks up his orders (gas,time,wear & tear on his car). He's including sales tax. I don't know what it is by you but here it's 8% which is $40. So what's the dealer making ? $20 to $30 dollars. I'd say he's doing you a BIG favor at that price.
