Ruger 10mm Revolver... Anyone have any of the variations? Login/Join

I've seen a 3" Wiley Clapp Talo version, a Match Champion Version and a standard GP-100 blued version.

I'm curious how they shoot, how accurate are them? I find the 3" particularly appealing, but I'm sure it would be a handful with 10mm.

You can also shoot .40 I assume with moon clips. I assume the Redhawk is a tank, but I'm more interested in the GP-100s.

Any experience??

I have a Buckhorn, a Blackhawk convertible with a 10mm cylinder and a 38-40 cylinder, which I bought used. IIRC the barrel is 6". The 38-40 cylinder doesn't seem to have ever been out of the bubble wrap; doesn't even have drag lines from the bolt.

It's pretty accurate, even with just iron sights. One time, when I was shooting from a rest at 50 yards, the other guy at the range observed "That's minute of deer, right there." :-)

I have a Wiley Clapp Talo 3" model and love it. I can shoot 40SW or 10mm. I will be using it as my Winter warrior. I would recommend getting better made after market full moon clips from TKCustom if you want to fire 40SW. The factory ones flex and you get light hit no fires. It feels like a 357 Magnum with the tens. It is very manageable.

I have a stainless steel Ruger Blackhawk in 10mm /.40 S&W. (two cylinders) 2017 production.
I bought it for deer hunting and range toy use. It's a wonderful revolver and I have zero complaints.
That model is available with 4 5/8" and 6 1/2" barrels.
I chose the 6 1/2" barrel length for a longer sight radius and a slight increase in velocity.
Everybody should have at least one!

I have the Buckeye Blackhawk 10mm/ .38/40. I like it a lot. It's very accurate.
