The scenes in the Roosevelt and Nelson guns just cry out for a "pinless" sidelock to keep from punching holes in the art.

Ummmmm....WOW! Words fail me. Great image of Teddy, amazing considering the size and medium. The floral piece...simply amazing.

Art and Honor

I just stumbled across this site as I was googling an Uberti 1858 Remington revolver replica in stainless steel.

I never imagined I would be treated to the participation of such a master in these threads when I am active.

You are an incredible artist or artisan.

I do stick figures on paper and carve a violin or two ... I write a string quartet every now and then and I like guns.

I just never imagined a world class artist would show up and share so openly with U.S.

Thanks, the photos are awesome and the engraving leaves me speechless ... ahem ... do you do $100's ...

The $100's I keep for myself, but don't tell anyone.

Truely remarkable works of art. I have handled some well engraved guns at gunshows, but none to the quality of those pictured. Thanks for showing them.
