My man @tfrostengraver doing some great work on this wheel gun. Tony is scheduled to trick out my Bond Arms Texas Defender, and I'm really thinking about having the cylinder decorated on the new Chiappa Rhino. Tony does some great work on all kinds of things, not just guns. Check out his page, throw a follow his way, and hit him up if you'd like to talk about having a piece from your collection personalized. He's good people! . Reposted from @tfrostengraver - Finished carving - totally hand chased - one hammer, three chisels (square, flat, liner), one circle dot punch. #handengraving #handengraved #engraving #engravedgun #engraver #coltfirearms #colt #colt45 #masterpiece #tonyleefrost #gunporn #gun #gunpictures #gunpics #guns - #regrann

More Weatherby projects. Floorplates, scope rings, and an old pre-Mark V Weatherby .357 Magnum to do a Crown job on. (Crown is what they call the full blown traditional Weatherby coverage and style). Second pic I've soldered the critters on the floorplates. #handengraving #handengraved #weatherby #weatherby #gunporn #gun #gunpictures #gunpics #guns #gunengraving #masterpiece #engraving #engravedgun #engraver #tonyleefrost

Some lettering touch up and this Rampant Colt on an old small frame lightning. Colt had numerous variations of their Rampant Colt logo over the past 180 years. It was originally a modification of the Colt family coat of arms in medieval England. The spears the horse had are a symbol of it protecting it's knight - grabbing an enemy spear in its mouth and breaking one over its knee. When restoring these antiques I have to make sure I'm using the correct logo for that firearm in the appropriate years. Also have to make sure it looks old! #engraving #engravedgun #engraver #gunporn #gun #gunpictures #gunpics #guns #gunengraving #coltfirearms #colt #masterpiece #handengraving #handengraved #tonyleefrost

Working in another Colt SA today. This one in a heavy, hammer and chisel, L.D. Nimschke design. The second two pics show a close-up of the progress marks (chisel marks) made each time the graver is hit by the hammer. The last pic is a close-up of the graver I use. It truly is a tiny, 1/8 x 1/8" chisel. People often have the misconception that is hand engravers use a vibratory or rotating "etching" tool of some sort. Nope! We actually carve the metal. #handengraving #handengraved #engraving #engravedgun #engraver #coltfirearms #colt45 #masterpiece #gunporn #gun #gunpictures #gunpics #gunengraving #tonyleefrost

Smoke of the barrel. These DA's I'm cutting through the nickel are "budget" jobs. Light, simple engraving. I don't know the final customers on these but my guess is they are "entry level" collectors wanting actual 1st Gen Colts but not into the highly collectable bracket. The DA's aren't yet worth what the SA's are - but they are slowly gaining in value. #coltfirearms #colt #colt45 #handengraving #handengraved #engraving #engraver #gunporn #gunpics #gunengraving #gunpictures #tonyleefrost

The distinguishing marks of hammer and chisel engraving. They are called "progress marks". Each one indicates the tap of the hammer against the graver (miniature chisel). This is why what I do is not "etching". Nor is it like modern "engraving" in which a diamond point is dragged across the surface of the metal making a scratch. This is actual carving! #handengraving #handengraved #gunporn #gunpics #colt #colt45 #engraving #engraver #tonyleefrost

My next job is this first generation Colt SA with original masters engraving. It is rusted beyond restoration so my job is to copy it as exact as possible onto another first gen. Lots of time under the scope examining what's left of the old pattern then carving it.
