Is this a S&W Victory that has been polished, blued and then engraved? Since it's from Texas, it may be a BBQ gun.

It's not a Victory if it's .45 ACP.

no one is losing money on custom revolvers by well known gunsmiths.
Not the case here.

You weren't referring to this particular revolver but made a broad, general statement and that's what I was responding to. I cannot ascertain what you meant to say but can only respond to the words that appear on the screen.

One rarely gets a return on any sort of customization of firearms. Or cars. Or houses. Or anything.
"Custom" usually means made for the orderer. Hard to find someone who wants exactly the same thing.

I wouldn't buy it, that is a lot of money, too much money.

rarely
The guns by top quality artisans are rare. What can a good hand engraver produce? one gun a week? Two? Maybe three? I don't know, but it isn't enough that they are floating around my LGS. That will hold true for almost all the customization out there.
