    I purchased from a dealer in Ca a beautiful mod 12 pigeon grade with great wood and fabulous deep engraving on the receiver. I have looked with a glass for some form of ID but could not find it. This website has so many knowledgeable collectors that I would like to send email to whom ever would be interested in seeing this gun. I would post the pics for everyone but I am just not that good at following the steps they have described here. I have good photos of the entire gun and will send the pics to those would would like to help. I have looked for a longtime to find a Mod 12 as pretty as this one. It does show some wear but that engraving on the receiver will never wear!I hope to have some reconditioning done to it when I can afford it. Thnks Striper This gun is not for sale

    Look that engraving over very carefully with a magnifying glass. Most competent engravers sign their work.

    My dad's uncle, Floyd Warren from Ohio used three birds on his engravings. I think they were just made of arc's. He passed away a year or two ago. He engraved many guns, mostly Colt's

    My guess looking at it would be Neil Hartliep, he did a lot of his and this one looks like one of his early engravings.

    what a beautiful Mod 12 you have there wow. I would agree it looks like the work of Neil Hartliep. I have a book on gun engravers I will look through that this evening to see if theres are engarvers markings for him and where he may have placed them.

    I really appreciate all the help. Does anyone have an idea what this style of engraving would have cost. I am trying to get an idea of what the owner had invested in the fine mod 12. I have found some information about Neil. He was a very well known engraver sort of a classic teacher and craftsman. Thanks to all for the help.
