    Looking for input on picking up a 4" or longer extra barrel for a Ruger GP100. How difficult, and or how expensive for having a 'smith install?

    Call up Ruger and ask them.
    Better yet, buy another GP100. You can't have too many.

    "Extra" barrel for a non Dan Wesson revolver?
    That's odd.
    Installing a barrel on a revolver is pretty much a one time deal/considered semi permanent.. as there can be a fair amount of metal "crush" factor and hand fitting involved.

    Have no experience with revolvers, I did see a Dan Wesson Kit for sale (for a fortune), and a NOS barrel for sale that got me thinking maybe it would not be too hard. Thanks for the education!
