Has anyone sent their SR back to Ruger for surface rust spots and how did they handle it?

Over on the ruger forum there were a few posts about this issue. Can't remember to outcome but it may be worth it to check them out.

Have not had issues on the 6 SR1911s I have ins different sizes etc. Actually I have not had any rust on any Ruger going back to the early 70s, even the blue ones.

When I bought my GP100 5 inch bbl stainless steel revolver, it had rust stains around the front sight. It took me awhile to remove the stain with a fine abrasive pad with some simi-chrome. After doing so, you have to look really hard to see any sign of it, and it has never reappeared.

Heat-treatable 400-series stainless steel will rust if not given some basic care. Not Ruger's fault.

Don't keep it in the safe without wiping it on a regular schedule.
That or always keep the weapons in silicone sleeves.
Take it apart and put the pieces in different places until needed.
For me it's common sense, for most users it's definitely not.

I treat my CMD no different than if it was a blued gun. As far as stainless goes, this is the least most rust resistant I've ever seen.
Proud to have served.

Have had my SR1911 Commander for about five years. Never a rust problem.
Never gets is done on a “when I get around to it” schedule.
