Way Kool, with a capital K! Did you use one of the Glendo engravers for that, and how much effort is in it?

Looks nice!

Is the engraving on the top distracting when aiming?

How about the dot on the front sight, does it work well?

I take a tracing of the panels on the gun that will be engraved, I then begin to sketch and fill the different panels with scroll work using a pencil. Once the sketching looks good, I then make a master of the sketch and file the original away for future references on other projects. Next the metal parts are coated with a substance called Chinese White, and then the tracing is transferred to the metal panels and the engraving begins.

That is some amazing work. Congratulations. I don't have the guts to try something that advanced.

Not a huge fan of engraved firearms, but that is nice... would look nicer with squared/90 degree angles on the edges. But nice none the least.

I would like to thank everyone again for viewing the engraving and custom scroll work, and thank everyone again for their wonderful constructive comments. It brings me great joy to taking a standard mass produced production weapon and begin to transforming the gun into a truly one of kind collector piece. Great Forum.

The photos of your pistols have me salivating. Darn nice looking work. But it also takes me back to my younger days. The days when I bought my first car. Couldn't afford much so I ended up with a beat-up used '67 VW. Damn those thing were built like a tank. And they kept on running and running. That was way back when I had more hair than sense. Luckily I have more of the later but, unhappily, lest of the former.

Two reasons I purchased my P3AT. The first is it's reputation and factory support. The second is cost. While I love the work you've done to these guns, I can't justify the cost. But that doesn't stop me from wanting one. Boy howdy do I want one. Thanks for the pics.
