View Full Version : GP-100 Barrel

May 9, 2009, 08:31 PM
Hello all,
I had an interesting idea that I thought I would throw your way and to ask about a smith to do the project.
It seems everbody likes short barrels on their revolvers, everbody but me.

I have a Dan Wesson with interchangable barrels, and I have a Ruger GP-100 with a 6" barrel.
Is there a smith that can take off the Ruger barrel and put on the DW barrel?

I know it may involve drilling out the threads and putting a sleeve in place but how hard can that be?

Anyway just kicking around the idea, and looking for smiths.

Happy shooting

It would be much easier and much cheaper for your smith to make a different barrel liner and tensioning nut and just use the DanWesson barrel sleeve.
