There are several reasons for this post.  For starters I wanted to practice using this new forum.  It's silly easy to post pics now.  I think it will also help increase traffic and growth if we put a little effort into the "eye candy."  These pictures were posted on the old "Yellow" and met with much appreciation but they then suffered the same fate as all posts on that format.  The older it got the farther down it went until it was many pages back, never to be seen or heard from again.  Finally, I just like showing off my buddy's work.  It's his work and his gun.  I had nothing to do with it other than a little drooling at the finished product.

That is simply incredible. An art that was only available to the fortunate back in the turn of the century and before.

Congrats to the 'artisan'/maker/engraver. Beautiful.

It looks like he did some stifling relief. "Some", I mean a lot. Actually it looks like he used hand tools & an engraver/dremel. It's amazing and he most likely will keep as an heirloom. I have a friend whose absolutely amazing, this kind of stuff & more. He won't do it though for anyone but himself as he says no one will pay me the hours I have into these projects. I do them for myself & Son. I asked him if he could make a compressor. Said yes but easily 100 hours work & therefore cheaper to pay Bauer $4K and buy one. He's an FFL holder. Most of his business is accurizing, custom stocks, pillar bedding, threading barrels for dedicated silenced arms. I saw a guy once at a gun show and his work was all pointism. It looked like a Black & white photograph of an African big game scene. Amazing stuff. Couple guys here can do anything also but don't really make it known. The engraved H&H reminds me of The 9K Blazer that got it's clock cleaned by a $300 handi-rifle in .243, The Blazer sure was pretty to look at though.

James, the same guy that did the P11 in this thread does memorials as a "day job." I have seen him duplicate photographs on granite just using, as you said, engravers and dremels. As the bits wear they make different types of marks so he keeps them all in order by amount of wear so he has a broad "palette." He has more recently been doing his own guns and bike parts for custom builds. He is definitely of of those guys that can write his own ticket.

He said the P11 was easy due to the alloy frame. It "cut like room-temp butter."

The engraving is bad ass, But how about them sites on the gun? Where did you get them and easy to install?

The sites are the stock sights that came on the gun. Just for the record; not my gun or my work, that of a friend.
