I was wondering if all rugers have the "read the instruction manual" text on them or whether the older ones didn't. If it wasn't a policy from the begining then when did the safety notice become standard?

My 3" SP101 is being shipped to me tomorrow and I'm considering sanding and polishing the safety notice into oblivion after I get it.

The older Rugers don't have warnings engraved on the barrel, it's something new they started doing I believe.

Then again my Security Six has the warning on the barrel and it's about as old as I am.

I just looked at the pics of the gun again and noticed that the barrel says:

.357 magnum cal
125 gr bullet

Is this the weight the gun is sighted in for? The sights are fixed so I don't know why else a bullet weight would be on the gun.

I think the "billboard" appeared on Ruger barrels sometime in the 1970s, but I can't remember which year. Old Models don't have 'em and neither do early New Models.
