    Jim,

    Very nice piece of artwork to compliment such a fine animal! I don't see why you wouldn't hunt with it in W Texas. The way I hear it, all you do is step out of the truck by the feeders. Lol.

    Bill, I just read your (LOL) post. However, I'll be happy to talk to anyone about their ideas. You will find that I am considered very ecconomical/reasonably priced --- way less than factory engraving. Ken 910-221-5288

    Hi LLano Bill, Yes mine is basically "In the White" however I applied a little diluted cold blue with gun oil about 10-15% cold blue no more... then a lot of oil rubbing to the surface.

    I know Ken is going to be peeved when he reads this but anyway I did it too just relieve the starkness of the "In the White"...

    Whenever I take it out I apply a little light oil rub...

    I love the Bulino shadowing backgrounds Ken uses like in the Marsh grass and Field grass...

    I would like to add that to mine but not sure what it should be, maybe some clouds to accentuate the Eagles (both sides)...

    What do you think Ken...???

    Bill I love your rising pheasants in the field, what is on the other side of the receiver ?

    Chuck

    Beautiful work on both guns. I have a couple of questions. What is the normal turnaround on a project? Are engraved guns normally left in the white or are they plated? I thought I had read once that Ken often had them hard chromed which surely is a durable finish but not sure if I would like the gray stainless steel color of hard chrome.
    Bill, if that were my gun and my dog I think it would bring a tear to my eye every time I looked at it. Wonderful tribute to your friend.Enjoy.

    Texshooter ---- why not give me a call. Even tho this project may be down the road a bit, it's always a good idea to give it lots of forethought . We could discuss your interest & I might be able to give some input as to balance/design, etc. This will give you a good mental picture of what you think you want & allow you plenty of time to be sure or make changes.

    Ken, I'll give you a call. I've got a custom Model 64 that was made by Dale Storey and a Shilo Sharps that I want to do. I have a Silver Seitz I may need to do something with if you're not tired of doing them. AJ
