    By fouling do you mean carbon build up? If so, a lead cleaning cloth or steel wool and gun oil will take care of it. Midway USA has a lead cleaning cloth for a few $ that's what I use

    The GP 100 has a notorious reputation for fouling - with any ammo. I can tell you are never going to be happy with it so better sell or trade it to me - and you can leave it dirty!

    Well ok then, plan on hours and hours of laborious maintenance on it!! All kidding aside however it is most likely an ammo issue as oppose to the gun. Many variations of .387/.357 ammo out there and some is much dirtier than others. My experience with the .38/.357 the slower the round the dirtier it seems to shoot. The faster, high velocity .357s seem to run cleaner. Is your GP blue or SS?
