    Here's one of our entry level packages.... this one done to illustrate the level of custom engraving that can be done at this level of cost. This is a series 80 colt, fit grip safety & bluing by Joe Chambers... I do the engraving, grip fitment & other finishing/design work. By collaborating, we can offer high quality builds, with true custom one off themes.. the best of both shops.

    This theme is a bio-mech vine work... with some bio mech touches here & there to add to the overall theme. Lighting didn't allow for more pics today, or better angels. More to come!

    this pistol would run $2300... the package costs in the $1500-$1700 realm, depending on all the variables.

    Looks awesome Ed. I would have never thought I would like engraving on a 1911. I can't wait to see more. Thank you for sharing.
    IT ROCKS. :hail:
