I'm with you. I used to hate them. but have grown fond of them. They can be a tool, a collectible, sentimental value, or all in one.

I see it now as customizing a car or boat.

I only like engraving on single action revolvers (yours look great!) and break action shotguns.

I dont care for it on any autoloaders, with the exception of cerian commemorative type guns that I'll never own.

I like nice and beautiful guns too, but not the engraving stuff, but more like some of the guns that posted here by some top notch gunsmiths, with those perfect flowing lines.

Hi, All;
I love them too, but, I'm into my 88th year, am a certified "Old Poop", and have waited to long, to commission a hand engraver to engrave one for me. I guess that I'll just have to be satisfied, looking at pictures posted by others. Thanks for sharing pictures yours, with me.

Or the style of a Grave Digger lunchbox that's made to out-badass the competition's Punisher lunchbox.

I got out of that stuff while still a teenager.
guess it depends on your heritage..

I am decades and decades past teenager. However, know the culture I grew up in.

Have a lot of respect and admiration for the talent that can engrave. Became attracted to the Belgium engraved pieces offered by Browning.

As a side note.....can't say I've ever seen an engraved AR or plastic firearm, not that I want one, just saying.

Looks like Mexican Day of the Dead artwork.

The amount of time,labor and skill it takes to do hand engraving is just amazing. I worked at a jewlery shop for about 6years and the shop manager did some amazing work with hand engraving on jewelry. He just would never touch a firearm. I was hoping to learn from him but he ended up leaving the company.

An SW wheelie with full factory coverage. An HK with laser flames and logos, some hot dots on the grip filled with hard enamel. Note the complete lack of levers on that pistol, when itís hot, itís hot.

*MAYHEM* nailed it.. I grew up in the desert SW where American and Mexican cultures are intertwined. Course I have a Mexican Step father which adds to it.
I wasn't inspired to build it. It was a very limited run of 10 from Guncrafter.
I will have the same engraver do a Defender for my wife though.

I love engraved American Flags!


Engraved Ruger stock, not a US flag, but perfect for Florida.

Wow, that stock is super-cool. That is one of the coolest 1022s I've ever seen. I like your flags too.

This is more like "day of the dead" than "punisher", so I agree,. and am all on board for this. I couldn't carry it off myself, but it's superb!
