Interesting, but I don't think you'll find many people here who like it.
Different tastes between the two countries.

I have imported engraved silver bits and spurs from Amozoc, Mexico for approximately twenty years. During that time; I have found that Mexican "gun" engraving and finishing tends to be a too garish and crude for the American pallet. Too bad; I'm sure this example is pricey

Buenas suerte Senor Arreguin.

I prefer a more subtle gun, but I can appreciate all the work that went into this one. What is the finish on the receiver? In one of the pictures (1825) it has a red tone to it in the dust cover. How many hours went into this gun?

With all my respect and appreciation to the handwork done, and this comes from a collector of fine engraved colts:

In my opinion the mexican style showed is simply too crude, the lines are not well defined and the scroll too big and deep and lacking of elegance.

My counsel will be you to learn and adopt the german, english or american scroll style. As Denis said you will not find any collector in the USA or in Europe interested in this crude style.

Gracias por mostrar su trabajo y buena suerte, el consejo se lo doy de buena fe.

Un saludo, Regards

I for one enjoy your posts and appreciate the amount of work that some of these pistols have invested in them. Thanks for taking the time to post them.

I think it's pretty cool. There are a lot of products that are obviously not designed or intended for me, but I generally take a "different strokes for different folks" attitude, unless it's something destructive or wasteful. I'd be the hit of the BBQ, as would anyone wearing that gun. In a fancy tooled leather rig? Shot of tequila in one hand, ice-cold cerveza in the other?

I like it, but was a little dissapointed when I opened the pic of the barrel where the black enameling was put on way to sloppy for such a nice engraving job. I suppose that could be fixed.
