Keep the real revolver ditch the wanna be 1911.
1911’s are a dime a dozen. Some cheaper models function and preform auite well and will always be around.
Id sell the 1911.
The SR1911 should be much easier to sell compared to the GP100, typically 1911's have much more demand than revolvers
I should have the 1911 listed tomorrow. I will also probably throw in some ammo to sweeten the deal.
Thanks everyone for the advice!
Years ago I had to decide which to sell, my GP100 or my King Cobra... I kept the Ruger.
Turned out to be a bad decision from a financial point of view, but I never regretted keeping the GP100, just that I missed-out on a tidy little profit if I'd held on to the Colt.
Speaking of plasma in the 40 watt range, sell some plasma.
Would a pawn shop help you over this?
Maybe you could get enough to tide you over and be able to get it / them out of hock later.
Just a thought.
Sorry to here about your problems i would keep the GP had mine long time love it
FYI, Ruger does not use MIM parts. Ruger uses an investment casting method known as the lost was process, which how wonderful things like jet engine turbines are made...
Never confuse Ruger investment "casting" with any other way of forming molten or sprayed metal. It is far from the same.
Right now the two guns mentioned are about the same value. I would sell the 1911 only because the GP-100 will likely go up a little in value, the 1911, not so much and the 1911 easier to replace. IF they are safe queens, that would be my biggest concern.
A little different idea, got any friends that would buy your gun, and keep it tucked away for you just like it is, ready to sell back to you when finances change?
That’s not an option but thanks for the idea.
Ruger started using MIM hammers and triggers on some or all Revolvers. My SP101 that I bought almost two years ago has a MIM hammer. It’s not really a big deal, I’m just picky about little things.
The friend idea is good!
Personally, I'd keep the revolver. And I know what you mean; firearm sales seem slow, despite it being the holiday season.
if you are selling just ammo lemme know!
I was in this position awhile back.
Id keep the GP just because it will hold its value no matter what.
The Ruger why nice will be hard to sell Id think maybe $450.00 only because its a buyer market right now.
Stores are selling 599.00 AR's for 399.00, and sales are abound. Around March is good because people have Tax Money.
Sucks, I feel your pain been there and hated it.
I would sell the 1911, you'll never get your money back out of the revolver is my guess.
Of course where I'm at it's hard to sell a revolver, but that SR1911 would sell for $100 to $150 more than you paid for it, as it's private sale in AZ
I have sold and re purchased a 1911 and a Ruger revolver. I don't have any advice but I know your pain and I hope thing turn around for you soon.
