Yeah, I'm taking that into consideration. I may try to sell it on Armslist. Imma see what the LGS gives as a quote on store credit and not cash. Its a great shop, fair prices and never done me wrong. They gave my cash back on a Marlin 45-70 once. After I bought it, I brought it home to clean it before shooting it like I do all my guns. Well, my bore light reveled the worse rilfing I have ever seen in my life. It looked like some one scrubbed the barrel with a string of barbed wire fence, lol. turns out, every Marlin he had in the shop looked like that.....what happened to Marlin????

If my wife would let me buy another gun right now.... I'd probably take your 1911. But... I just got my LCR last week so that would be a tough sell. She seems to think a new bedroom set is a better idea.

Last question first, "what happen to Marlin?????" Freedom Group/Remington happened to Marlin. Pretty common knowledge. Plus as great as the crappy Remington company is they just fired 120+ of their top management people in the middle of their last loss in court. Colt has gone belly up recently (again)so I would be careful at what I sold in firearms.
I see it all to often in the shooting world, it has problems so rather than make the maker take care of the problem let's just kick the can down the road and give the problem to someone else.

First, I knew about the Freedom Group takeover buy out

Second....im not selling that SR1911 due to functionality...the cone around the crown has chatter marks (just cosmetic....however it drives me nuts) Ive already sent the gun in once due to the first barrel's crown looked like it was crowned with a rock and couldn't hit crap with it. The new barrel is fine - other than the tool marks. I'm not gonna take another day off work for UPS/FEDex to pick it up and then another day off work to wait at the house for UPS/FEDex to drop it off just to have Ruger say its in their factory specs.

I bleed Ruger Red when I'm cut, I'm a Ruger Fan. There I said it, I got that out of the way. I sit back and chuckle at the complaints about QC at Ruger. Ruger builds as good a firearm- better than most at a very affordable price. If the piece you bought doesn't satisfy you they will repair, replace or refund your money, even though they don't come with a warranty. This includes those horrible, ugly, unsightly tooling marks that I usually can't see in the pictures. Ruger will even pay shipping both ways.

We do have an alternative though, we can spend 3 or 4 times what a Ruger costs and get a custom gun, maybe a Freedom Arms. The Freedom Arms won't have tooling marks and will be more accurate (but not enough that the average shooter can tell) and you might get one for $2500 vs the $600 a Ruger cost. It won't last any longer than a Ruger. The original owner will be dead and gone long before either is worn out.

I don't work for Ruger or own any stock. But I do know a good deal when I see one. All of this is Just my humble opinion and your mileage may vary.

The whole story of this thread is rounded down to this:

Some people are NITPICKY and/or OCD enough that the slightest thing will bother them and RUIN the item for them. I do not say this in a disparaging way - it just is what it is. My wife will get on her hands and knees on the back deck cleaning off bird poop - BECAUSE IT BOTHERS HER even though I think the birds have every right to poop wherever they want. Lately she hoses off the pollen on our cars every day BECAUSE IT BOTHERS HER. After 51 years of marriage I know not to say a word because then she gets DEFENSIVE and thinks I AM STUPID BECAUSE IT DOES NOT BOTHER ME. I am 100% opposite in thinking and doing than she is and perhaps that is why we have been married for 51 years . . . . .

SO - for those of you who are bothered by LINES or ROUGHNESS INSIDE A GUN that mean absolutely nothing in the performance of the gun then do not buy those products that will cause you so much pain and suffering. We all know that in order to resolve such issues the manufacturers must spend a lot more money and RUGER will not do that. So there is always a niche in the market of all products for that SPECIALTY MANUFACTURER who will buff and polish 100% of the product and then charge QUADRUPLE the price. I have shot FREEDOM ARMS GUNS and can tell you that my .454 CASULL SUPER REDHAWK for around $850 will shoot just as good (actually even better) than the FREEDOM ARMS PREMIER .454 CASULL owned by a friend that he paid $2500.00 for. He thinks the highly finished and polished FA is the cats pajamas and well worth his money. However, I have a whole lot more guns than he has because I buy guns that SHOOT GOOD and not just LOOK GOOD. So to each his own. Sell all your RUGERS - I would buy them all but already own all that you have and more.

By the way - I CAN AFFORD THOSE HIGH PRICED GUNS - - I JUST CHOOSE TO SPEND MY MONEY DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU . . . . . . .
