    Hi all,
    I recently bought a 1960 mdl. 12 and I just love it. It is nothing fancy, but hasn't been shot alot. I saw on the web a fella by the name of Bill Mains who does hand engraving and does absolutley beautiful work. He has quite an impressive past and history doing work for Ithaca and Colt several years ago. I JUST sent him an email on what I have and want, haven't heard back yet, and was wondering if any of you fellas or ladies have had work done by Bill, and if he is reasonable on price. His work is "old school" all done by hand, and knowing that, I hope I can afford him to do a pistol grip cap for me. BTW, it is so good to be in the mdl. 12 family of shooters. I hope (and want) to shoot doubles in ATA with that thing someday and hang in there with the big boys. boomchickchickboom! -powderburn

    I'm sorry powderburn but Bill passed away last year. He was a great engraver and there are a lot of shooters that he did work for.
