Hello,
New to the forum but not Rugers. Quick question. I just bought a SR1911 used at a great price. the only problem is...a bunch of ugly laser engraving NRA stuff on it. Any reason not to put it into the carry rotation? This 1911 seems to be a well done gun. Better than my crimson carry i think.

Yeah, show pics before you do anything. Someone may take that off of your hands and give enough cash for you to get exactly what you want... that way, TWO people would be happy. :)

It is probably a 2012 Friends of NRA Sponsor gun. These were given to $2500. Sponsors for 2012 Friends of NRA Events. Very nice collectibles.

This is definitely not the fancy engraving. More of a production type laser engraving. No ivory grips or anything. If it was the fancy I wouldnt even ask. I'd just put it away.

I can't post pics yet. At least I don't think so.
If you do not already have an account just go to

Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

and sign up for free. There is no charge at all to store your pictures there. You UPLOAD the pictures from you computer then you use the DIRECT LINK to each picture off PHOTOBUCKET and paste it into the link that pops up when you press the INSERT IMAGE icon here on you Ruger Forum Post. The ICON looks like a couple mountains with a moon/sun on the top right. Save your post and there are your pictures....


- - - and I agree that the SR1911 may be an NRA gun that may or may not be valuable - worth it to show the engraving here for the experts to see....

Well mate, I was trying to be diplomatic in my post, but you're right. :D
If it were mine, yep, I'd get it bead blasted.

I agree it's not the most attractive, but I am not very fond of engraving of any sort. I was just glad to find one. Most around here if you can find one are over $700.I saw a new one they wanted $850 for!
