engraving?

Does anyone know where I can get a bolt handle engraved? I want to have the handle knob engraved to look like an acorn.My stock is being carved in an oak leaf and acorn pattern and I would like some matching metal work.

I can do it, but it will require more than engraving. Lots of filing and grinding are involved, too. Plus, the handle will have to be reblued-which I don't do.

Yes, I can gold plate the parts. I do not have an FFL, so you would have to send the parts, only.
Please contact me at Mickeybeep@aol.com.
