    Yesterday I picked up a new speedloader set up from Speed Beez, for my new Ruger GP-100, 10 shot .22 revolver. This is a really nice, well built speedloader system for this revolver. It comes in a nice carrying case that contains an O-Ring seal, much like the Pelican cases do, to prevent any water or moisture from entering the case.

    It has holes to contain 100 rounds of .22 ammunition, along with a cut out in the center to contain the speedloader itself. The actual speedloader is of very high quality. The center section is machined from a solid piece of Aluminum on a live tool CNC lathe, that is finished by an Anodizing process in a gold color. The lower section that holds the ammunition is cut from black Delrin. The unit is held together by a single hardened and ground Allen Head Stripper Bolt that also holds the spring that releases the rounds. The loading block that contains the rounds is removable, if you care to separate it from the case while you're using it.

    You simply place the loader over the group of 10 rounds. Then push down on the black Delrin piece until it snaps over the rim of the rounds. You then place the rounds into the cylinder of the gun, and press the gold anodized top piece, and it dumps all 10 rounds into the chambers instantly. A really nice, fast, foolproof system. With this set up you can easily maintain a shooting pace that will exceed that of a semi auto. Unless of course you happen to have 10, 10 round magazines all loaded up and ready to go.

    For a 10 round .22 revolver this is really a nice thing to have. .22 rounds are small, and easy to fumble with while trying to load 10 of them into the cylinder. This makes the whole loading sequence fast and effortless. Speed Beez is mail order operation right here in Phoenix. I called to see if I could just drive over and pick one up. The owner was there, and explained how they manufacture and assemble them. It's a quality piece that comes in a variety of models, configurations, and calibers. If anyone is interested, this is their website, and some better pictures of the GP-100, along with the loader, and with the box and loading block that comes with it. It's really a nice edition to the Ruger GP-100.

    Nice addition to a smooth looking pistol.

    RUGER GP-100 RANGE REPORT

    This morning I loaded up my new Ruger GP-100, along with my new speedloader set up for it, and headed out to the range early. I put over 400 rounds of Winchester Super-X High Velocity through it total. This ammo was 1980's vintage that I had stockpiled through the years. All of it performed flawlessly, with not a single misfire. Primer strikes were nice and deep. None were shallow.

    It took me a while to get the sights dialed in. Mostly because I wasn't used to them. But after a couple of cylinder full's, the gun was printing beautifully with a 6 o'clock hold at 25 yards. Wind was dead calm. The one thing about this revolver, is you must keep the area under the ejector star clean. The slightest bit of powder, dirt, or fouling will make the cylinder difficult to shut. I had a little can of that compressed "computer air" with me, which worked great for blasting clean the area under the ejector star.

    The Speed Beez speedloader set up worked flawlessly. It makes loading 10 rounds effortless, and can be done in seconds. I actually took a break after 60 rounds or so because the gun was getting warm from the constant shooting. The trigger on this gun is beautiful in single action. Let off was nice and crisp at around 4 pounds. The double action pull was VERY HEAVY. It did lighten up a bit after around 250 rounds. I'm sure the more I shoot this gun, the better it will get. But for the most part, if you want to achieve any good accuracy with this revolver, it will be in single action.

    My only complaint was I wish the hammer spur was arched a little more. My thumb hit the back end of it instead of feeling the entire checkered spur itself. But it really isn't too bad. After over 400 rounds there was no line in the cylinder from the bolt dragging. The gun is timed beautifully. The cylinder locked up bank vault tight on every chamber.

    After I shot several targets at 25 yards, I went over to the rifle range and had at some steel gongs at 100 yards. I had no trouble hitting 12" gongs at that distance. I held just a bit above the top of the gong, and was getting boringly consistent hits. The gun is very accurate overall. But it isn't what I would call "target grade". I felt the fiber optic front sight is a bit large. It almost completely covered a 6" bull at 25 yards. I would prefer a red ramp blade front with the white outline rear. Much like the old Smith & Wesson Model 29's had. At least that's what I'm used to. I'm sure I'll get used to these sights after a few hundred more rounds.

    All in all I'm very happy with this gun. Ruger built this thing to last. I highly doubt anyone could possibly wear one of these GP-100 .22's out in a lifetime of shooting. I think it will take at least 1,000 rounds or more to get this gun properly broken in. It's getting smoother the more I shoot it. As you can imagine, the gun was filthy after I got it home. I went to work with some Hoppe's #9 and a toothbrush, and it cleaned up quickly and easily. I gave it a good "wash" in clean Kerosene, followed by a good blow drying with compressed air, and it was spotless. Then a good oiling, and she's ready to go again. I used "Lead Away Wipes" to remove all the dirt and burn marks from the front of the cylinder and barrel face. It cleaned it right up. I'm looking forward to shooting this gun again. It's really a blast to shoot!

    Awesome. I love the GP100. A 22 LR is awesome. I have a Taurus which supposedly has a heavy trigger but I have strong hands so I don't notice.
