Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the new Ruger® GP100® Match Champion™-a six-shot revolver designed with the competitor in mind. With its ergonomic enhancements and tuned action, the Match Champion™ delivers fast, accurate shots and takes the popular GP100® to the next level. Chambered in .357 Magnum, but capable of firing .38 Special, the Match Champion™ has a half-lug slab-sided barrel with an 11 degree target crown for competition accuracy, a chamfered cylinder and ejector, and custom Hogue® hardwood grips with stippled sides and dual speed loader cuts for quick reloads.

"Ruger has always been a popular choice for revolver shooters, and now we have a great platform for the competitive shooter who wants more out of a revolver," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer. "The GP100® Match Champion™ has a number of features the competitive shooter wants, including polished springs and a polished hammer strut, combined with trigger and hammer shims for a trigger pull that will help deliver shots on target with ease," he added.

A Novak® Lo-Mount Carry rear sight and fiber optic front sight create a great sight picture for both plates and targets, and the burnished trigger guard allows for smooth shooting all match long.
