removing the warnings....
:confused: I was wondering if it would hurt the barrel any if I had the engravings removed from the barrel of my New Blackhawk?

You'll probably want to fill the stampings rather than machine them away.
A good epoxy (JB Weld, or Devcon 10110) then refinish the whole gun with ArmaKote or something similar.

You'll devalue it that's for sure to a Bubba gun.

Not if its done right. If you fill it with Bondo, and Krylon over it sure. If you properly weld in and grind the offensive roll marks, then have it refinished properly I doubt it will harm the value to any buyer with the exception of serious collectors.

Removing the Warnings!

I'm gonna try and rewspond to this post with out turing it into a piece of why I hate Ruger, But here goes! This is one of the many reasons I will not buy a new Ruger firearm! That, apart from a company that will not sell you critical parts you might need in the Future, one that has been first to NOT SELL YOU HI CAP MAGAZINES long before any ban and a company who's CEO said to a Group of Police and Military that "If he had his way, he'd sell to the GOV and Law Enforcement only"! That tore it for me and I refuse to buy any Ruger once I heard Bill Ruger state that comment! As for the markins, Yea, you could grind them off, cover them up, OR YOU COULD ASK RUGER WHY THEY DID SUCH STUPID THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE? Tel them that you'd start buying Ruger only after they stopped defacing your Pistol or revolver or rifle? Just a thought, Not meant to pick on any one But Ruger, it just tweaks my jaw!

Sounds like enough to tweak a jaw!

I'll bet Ruger was bitten in the back side by some lawyer because some stupid SOB didn't know how to use a revilver safely, and hurt himself or someone else. Those warnings, like heavy triggers, are put there by Other lawyers! I leave them there and frame them with engraving.

"If he had his way, he'd sell to the GOV and Law Enforcement only"

WoW - I had no idea that jacka$$ said that and I just bought a new Super BlackHawk in .44 -

I feel violated !!!

Not buying specific weapons/firearms because of what the owner/CEO say's when he had to many glasses of wine is COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS like your post...:rolleyes:

have never tried but you might be able to roll the marks out.get a round bar about 1/2 " and several inchs long and pressure roll the area.might roll the metal in again.:confused: :( :p :)
