Update 2:
They acknowledged receipt and updated me a couple days later they will likely fix via barrel replacement rather than machining the cone and seating existing barrel a bit deep afterwards.

They did say though they would be unwilling to replace with 3 inch barrel as I requested ( gun is a 4 inch)
They dont do it anymore for past 3 yrs.. it technically would change model number etc..

Update:

Ruger got back to me.
Said they were going to change the barrel.

I had included a written request that IF they change the barrel they will replace with a 3 inch.
I am liking those more now for followiung reasons:
Handiness ( the 4.2 inch gun is full size)
Weight savings (shaves 4-5 ounces off the weight)
According to many tests the 3 inch barrels on the Ruger seem to perform superb for velocity and accuracy in a way belieing their length
....
Said they can't do it due to policy since it would change the model number and they can only replace with size barrel as originally sold.
This policy is about 3 yrs old.
That was on Monday.

But TODAY they told me that as a favor if would I like to receive a brand new 3 inch GP100 complete revolver in lieu of a barrel replaced 4 inch they could do that
Of course I told them "Yes!!!"

Once I called with my my enthusiastic concurrence they said ETA of my brand new built Ruger GP100 3 inch is 10-25 days.
This depends on where they are in production with existing orders right now.

You lucky dog you! Glad it worked out for you and glad there are still companies out there that look out for their customers. I bet whenever you're thinking about a new gun, Ruger will be at the top of your list.

Sooo..

I found a couple boxes of this among my stash of Ammo ( from acouple years back when my Ammo budget was more generous)


158 gr SJHP Federal Personal Defense

That will be my "real world" fill.

Since I am resolved not to buy more ammo when I can help it ('cuz I bought a LOT pre election mostly .223 and 5.56) my legacy stash will have to be sufficent feed my revolver.
I still have a case of 142 Fiocchi TC-FMJ and a half case SB 158 gr FMJ in stock to use for training (even tho both are almost too nice for training also)

My half case of GP100 only Ultra hot homebrews will be reserved for the actual Apocalypse only (or something very close)
