Mine didn't have any stickers, is that why it had to go back to Prescott 3 times?

Be careful of the NSA watching. Those dots are like the warning labels on mattresses. If they are removed, big brother will know, and you'll spend the rest of your life doing hard labor in prison

The dots are simply something put there so ppl will wonder why they're there, disregard actually searching for the answer and just ask the same question many others before them have.

Dot sticker threads should be in the Punchlines.
I enjoy the humorous replies.

Colt used to stamp their inspector's logo on the frame of their WWII pistols, Ruger uses a removable dot. Which begs the question - Since a WWII Colt with an uncommon inspector's stamp is potentially worth more, will a Ruger with an uncommon dot color be worth more in the future?
Remember, during the war nobody cared whose stamp was on what pistol, it wasn't until these pistols became collectible that the stamp meant anything.

Sorry guys but you know how dependable forum search features are! I just wasn't sure why there were different colors most being yellow where as mine was blue. Thought maybe the colors had something to do with barrel/bushing matching or test fire accuracy?? Who knows...that's why I asked.

p95: pinkish red sticker.

p95: pinkish red sticker.
it was not very official looking so I figured it might have indicated which salesperson so they got commission, or store indicator that yes it was sold, so I could get right into the range with it.

Blue means stand in the blue line when the gov asks us to return our guns... Orange means stand in the orange line...

Uh oh-- I took all the stickers off my guns...

And oh yes, I forgot, all my guns were lost in a tragic boating accident (saw that last bit in someone's signature line and loved it!)

I had the coveted purple dot on my MKIII 22/45. I took a picture of it then removed it and put it in a hermetically sealed container. It now sits on Funk and Wagnell's porch.
