    I asked a fellow named Charles Lee to engrave a new trigger guard and tang to match the engraving on my SO3EELL - a very high-end sidelock Beretta. The result was absolutely beautiful, it was exactly what I asked for and the quality of the work he did was every bit as good as the original work on the gun. Additionally, his price was quite reasonable.

    His website is at http://www.camhills.com/dale.htm.

    Highly recommended.

    I would highly recommend Paula Biesen. She is the daughter-in-law to Al Biesen that makes custom rifles in Spokane Washington. She recently did the last Infinity shotgun for me and it was a great job. Look her up on the web under Al Biesen rifles and give her a call.

    David Kessner in SLC does a nice job on things. Give him a call at 801-699-9247 to discuss what you want. He is one of the few hand engravers left. Google- Engraver Dave.

    An 1100 is a bear to engrave because of the depth of the factory rolling that should be removed. Kurt Horvath has done some, whether he enjoyed it or not.

    Another recommendation for Paula Biesen. She has done three projects for me and I couldn't be more pleased. Check out my latest post "kudos to engraver Paula Biesen" to see the latest.
