Did he do the grips also? Those are outstanding.Years ago, when I was stationed at Reese Air Force Base, outside of Lubbock, Texas, I got to know the owner of one of the local gun shops. In fact, I dropped quite a bit of money there. But, to the point, he had a friend, who worked in the shop. Not as a smith, but as an engraver. Frank was one of the best, greatest artisans I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. No such thing as, "laser" engraving. He did it all by hand and chisel. He did everything. Gold and silver inlay was common for him. Extremely intricate designs were every day occurrences. Years later, I was very pleased to find he had been recognized by one of the leading gun magazines. My point. If you are going to do it. If you really want to leave an heirloom, find an artist and have it done right.
