ruger gp100 cylinder binding
It should move with little effort, and you should see the front latch recede in the crane on the other side of the cylinder. I haven't disassembled it (I'm familiar with most semi-autos, but I don't fuck with revolver internals), but generally what's going on is that the cylinder is extremely tight to close even when unloaded, requiring way more pressure than it should take in order to get it into battery. This is really seen best with my daughter pulling the trigger. It’s unfortunate that so many people are still buying the 7-shot GP100 only to find out after the fact that it won’t accept industry standard ammo. This is not an ammo problem. I can measure and choose rounds that have smaller rims and they will load fine, but about half the rounds in the box measure slightly larger than the rest.

[12/1/18] The bottom line is that the cylinder chambers cannot be spaced out far enough on the 7-shot GP100 to accommodate ammo where the rim diameter is close to the maximum permissible industry standard diameter.

They’re not very difficult to take apart with some help from YouTube, I would just be careful to leave the trigger group assembled, that gave me some fits.

It’s been nearly a year since I posted these videos, but there’s been dead silence from firearm publications and Ruger, which does a disservice to the gun buying public. I hear the Ruger is good about handling these types of problems. It is also my understanding that they are doing this for others who don't want to put up with industry standard ammo not fitting in the gun.--------------------------------------------------------------I first contacted Ruger about this issue on Jan 31, 2018 and included a link to this video.There are two other related (and somewhat redundant) videos in this series: and posting this video, several additional ammo brands have been reported by other users to have this rim-to-rim binding problem.

TacticalReported good by Woody Hayes in comments: Monarch .357 brass (3/20/18) [UPDATE 2/1/18]I thoroughly cleaned the cylinder chambers and retested to see if the binding issue was affected. So a buddy of mine gave me a GP100 that he said was busted and he didn't wanna deal with it.

I have not tried other brands of ammo at this point, so the info I present here is limited, but I have had this problem on two boxes of Blazer Brass 38 SPL ammo.

FMJAmerican Eagle 38 Special 130 gr.

It was not.Then I bought four different brands of ammo and compared them with the Blazer Brass. As a quick test, I measured 14 rounds from each of the four 50-round boxes and then loaded them into the cylinder. Also, with the cylinder out, try pushing in the spot that the ejector center pin contacts on the inside of the frame with a punch or similar tool, this will allow you to fully cock the hammer and check whether it cocks and releases normally without the cylinder in place. Then, once you've got the cylinder actually locked in, the hammer will move about 25% of its travel before stopping up.

I just received my new GP100 with 6” barrel this past Friday 02/02/18. The 7-shot .357 GP100 will not accept industry standard name brand .38 Special and .357 Magnum ammo.
