      J.R.French Artistic Engraving

                                Engraving of Fine Guns and Knives

                                                    since 1968

                          

J. R. French has been engraving firearms and knives since 1968

using traditional tools and more up-to-date equipment such as the

 Lindsay Artisan AirGraver and the stereo microscope.

Maintaining high quality in pleasing and tasteful scrollwork and

design to compliment the job being worked is of the highest priority.

   The Golden Colt   
100 Years of Service Model 1911
This 1911 Stainless Steel Project began over two years ago. The base gun, a Colt Government model is new and unfired.
The background is enlayed in 24kt Gold, the scrollwork is relief Victorial Scrollwork. This is a one of a kind pistol, I can find no record of another 1911 using this method in existance. I spent over 500 hours engraving and enlaying this project. Extras include a presentation box, fiber optic sights, entended safety, slide release end spur along with  combat hammer. Accented with Gold plating.  SOLD
