This site was suggested to me by a few friends on AZShooting.org. I am a long time collector of pre-war (that's WW1), WW1, WW2 mid and Series 70 1911's. I also like some of the customs from Wilson, Les Bear and others. Anyway, as I said, this site was suggested to me because I am looking for an "old school" hand engraver who is versed in the Nimschke, Young style engraving. I have a series 70 Combat Commander that I bought as a gift for my daughter that I would like a special presentation engraving done for her. In 2013 she gave me the gift of life by donating one of her kidneys to replace my own failing ones. I've been wanting to do this for several years but it seems that old school hand engraving is a dying art. Nobody in Arizona seems to be doing it anymore. Any suggestions or contacts would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

May I suggest David Clevinger of Clevinger Customs for your engraving. It may take a while too get the work done...http://www.dcengraving.com/

He does his work by hand. Here is some work he did for me a few years ago. This style is called "Small American" Click on the pictures to enlarge. Welcome from Western Colorado!



Ted Yost of Estate Sporting Limited can recommend engravers, box makers or Ted can make you an awesome pistol with engraving and all the requisites to make the pistol an heirloom quality firearm! http://www.estatesporting.com/ Ted Yost is probably one of the top five smiths in the country and a heck of a nice guy! He is in Arizona! :grin: You might as well use Ted with his upgrades including a Kart Barrel on a series 70 Harrison ignition, Nitre blued screws and pins, since you are in Arizona, you might ask about ivory grips. Don't forget the Stan Chen Magwell!

Bobby Tyler of Tyler Gun Works can recommend engravers. https://www.tylergunworks.com/

Here is a link for the engravers guild. http://www.fega.com/
