Hand Engraved Remington 1100 Semi Auto

Recommended Posts

This is a shotgun I have just engraved, I am fairly new to engraving guns and this is the first portrait I have engraved on metal, as I am normally a glass engraver. The engraving was commissioned to mark the 50th Anniversary of the 1100 and the portrait is Eliphalet Remington the founder of Remington. I am now confident to engrave any persons portrait on a gun as well as any subject.

We found out that Eliphalet Remington's (dodgy Christian name ) parents came from a small village in Yorkshire called Rimington which I believe is an anglo saxon name

Top class work, how long would it take to that?

It took me just over a week of full time engraving

Now that's quality .... How long did that take ??

spot on ! I have trouble with match stick men , id love to be able to draw but I just cant, so I really appreciate it when I see something that is done so well , how much would that cost someone to have that done ?

Nice , when I'm flush you can do a little engraving on one of my shotguns .

Iv wanted the push gravers from the states for years now !!

Maybe you could offer to engrave some of my blades that the guys have ?

I charged £700 for this one which I don't think is out of the way for the ammount of work involved
