    Super nice handguns that you have there, OP. I am sure that you are going to get great results with them.

    I have an older GP100, the GP340 model, that is eerily similar to the Match Champion:

    Of course, the Match Champion is more refined, what with that wonderful sight system. The GP340 is more of a cop's carry gun configuration, what with the indestructible tunnel sight system.

    Let us know how that neat Match Champion works for you. If those show up in California I am probably going to snap one up. Love my GP100s!

    I posted a few pics of my new grip on another post..... I changed the grip for a better fit. Loved the look of the wooden grip, just didn't fit my hand that well......

    Nice revolvers. They will serve you for your lifetime. I love my SP101-22 8shot. I also have a 4" stainless GP100. I want a 3" GP100 or a stainless Service,Speed, or Security Six snub next.

    I took the Match Champion to an indoor range we have in our area. Its not the state of the art indoor range, but it works. The Match Champion is spot on, the gun is so smooth and so accurate...I love it. I forgot to take a few pics of the targets...sorry. And I am very pleased with the Hogue grip...fits me perfect. I would so recommend this wheel gun to anybody that loves revolvers.....:D
