The work of Sig's master engravers

I find it very humorous that those who can't seem to grasp the concept of engraving guns, have no problem spray-painting theirs and adding pieces of inner tube to the grip-and calling it "customizing."
I agree bill. I love engraved guns. I personally don't like the gold on the ones in the OP, but that is just me. But again you are right.

If I can find a used Hi-Point, I may take you up on that. It would be two FIRSTS, in some respects. <grin>

Beautiful. The art goes way beyond the gun.

Out of all of them, I really liked the King Tut version. It just looks badass to me personally. The Barracuda is awesome too.

I hate engraved guns, but I have to admit I like the actual engraving of the King Tut, but it would have to lose the gold stuff and the white grips to make it tolerable for me to actually own. Anything other then the usual engraving is a huge improvement, IMO. My apologies to anyone who loves the usual engraving..

I'm not a fan of engraving at all, but I was really impressed with all of those Sigs. I guess maybe because they aren't the standard swirly, loop de loo, crappy looking engraving that I see most of the time.

Stony --

I love the engraving on those Colts. They suit my taste more than the Sigs.
