Special SR1911, the one millionth Ruger produced in 2012, being auctioned for The NRA Foundation
Indianapolis, Indiana - A one of a kind 1911, the one millionth gun produced by Sturm, Ruger & Company Inc. in 2012, will be on display at the National NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction on Thursday, April 24 in Indianapolis. Proceeds from the event, which kicks off the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, will go to ensuring the future of America’s shooting sports traditions.
After becoming the first commercial manufacturer to ship one million firearms over a twelve month period in 2011, there were doubts that Ruger could reach the milestone a second time. But the one millionth gun of 2012, a SR1911, came off the assembly line on August 15, and Ruger CEO and President Mike Fifer had special plans for the occasion. The pistol was handed to Baron Engraving to give this collector’s item a truly unique design.
