Hi Don!

Let me move your request to the right forum - so others who have knowledge of engravers/engraving might be able to assist, OK??

Dick comes to the Duluth Puglisi shoot. Grand fellow. Elderly now, in his 80's. Good engraver. What do you want to know?

Examples of Dick's engraving on the brass hardware of this Huey case. Done in 2009 in the Parker style.

Come to the Duluth / Puglisi shoot and give Mr Washburn a call to ask him to come over. Duluth was fortunate to have two excellent craftsmen, Dick Washburn and George Flaim ( now deceased). The Puglisi gun shop is also there and one can spend many hours there.
