I am looking at picking one of these up a doing a sleeper retro build. I know that the rollmarks are laser engraved. The ones I have looked at look a little shallow but not too bad. If I was going to have the gun's flats polished will the new laser rollmarks hold up? The polishing will be done professionally and my hand.

Not all of them are laser engraved. The serials are but after the first run of slides the stopped laser engraving and used roll marks. Either way they look good after sanding and polishing. You would have to look very closely to know the difference.
OK good to know. I did not realize they switched.

I think mine is laser engraved.


I don’t think I’ll be doing anything to the finish anyway, but I don’t think, on my gun, the markings would hold up.

When did you pick it up if you don't mind me asking?
