Scheel's GP100's Comparison
RunningOnMT said, "What I noticed on mine is an unequal amount of material removed from one side to the other on the frame and barrel. Look at the flat on top of the frame and see if it's centered to the top of the barrel, then look at the muzzle end and see if the barrel wall looks slightly thicker on one side."
RunningOnMt, the gun I have is just like yours and is visiblely noticeable. I even measured to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me.
I hope you guys realize that I have never had a revolver before this and thus don't know what is normal quality on a GP100. At least you have been kinder than some at other forum. Some there implied that I was an idiot for even bring up my concerns. The one area I could maybe dress up with a file or some other tool. The blemishes on all the locking notches might be another thing. If by chance Bindernut is correct and it isn't a machining problem but maybe something caused by using the gun I'd hate to see it get progressively worse.
Just out of curiousity I stopped at the local Scheels and looked at the two stainless GP100's they had in stock. Neither one of the GP100's they had had the issues I'm talking about in my original posting. I wouldn't have any second thoughts buying either of those.
