You can see more engraved firearms here.

I've not been able to justify, to myself, the cost of having a gun engraved. But I like the looks of the ones that are moderately done so that the weapon is still usable.

I agree that is Art, of a fine class.
If you fire an engraved weapon, how can you clean the powder off the engraving? Hard enough cleaning the cylincer areas on my non engraved revolver.

Cylinder areas, not cylincer , please.

A toothbrush should work, I imagine.

Comrade, if you sold your plane you could probably afford to have the good folks at Remington customize one of their products to your exact specifications.

Comrade Misfit said...

Montag, probably not. The market is really soft for used airplanes.

You're right about the toothbrush. My dad had a Spanish built double barrel ten guage shotgun with some engraving on it. He caught me cleaning it with the brass wire brush from the rifle cleaning kit once, and after that a nice new toothbrush showed up in the kit. And some WD-40.
Nice gun, but it had two triggers and if you didn't use the rear one first you could fire both barrels and end up on your butt...
