•    Pair of 1908 Colts   

    This is a pair of Colt automatics that are engraved in a period style of when the pistols were initially manufactured. One features gold-plated trigger and safety, the other features a case-hardened and nickel-plated trigger and safety.

    This makes for a handsome brace of vintage pocket pistols!

  •    92 Deluxe Winchester   

    This engraved 92 Deluxe Winchester is engraved in a Winchester Factory Pattern that’s true to age of the rifle. This little 25/20 would have been the cat’s meow as a varmint rifle in its day!

    This Winchester features a white-tail deer on one side and a badger on the loading-gate side!

  •    Colt SAA 4th Gen   

    This is the current edition of the Colt Single Action Army engraved in a Helfricht-style American Scroll. The engraving on this gun is just over 50% coverage. This makes for a very handsome gun without a huge cash outlay. In fact, most of the guns that were engraved during the period of the American West, were between 50 – 75% coverage. You’ll find very few 25% or full coverage engraving on guns during this period.

  •    Marlin 1895 45-70   

    This is a beautiful Marlin deer rifle! It features American Scroll engraving with a running buck, doe, and farm scene on one side and a Whitetail buck portrait on the off-side.

    The Marlin is a thoroughly modern lever-action rifle in stainless steel that is ideal for hunting in thick cover.

  •    Custom Mauser 257 Roberts   

    This Mauser has been engraved in semi-relief carved oak leaves, based on a pattern used by the late, great Pennsylvania gunsmith, Paul Yaeger.

    The semi-relief carved oak leaves are generally less expensive to engrave as only the background is removed; the leaves themselves aren’t carved.

    This is a lovely quarter bore rifle in the classic Ned Roberts’ caliber of .257 Roberts’.

    The rifle is in the process of being finished by Canyon Creek Custom Gunstocks based out of Conner, MT.

  •    World’s Smallest Elephant Gun   

    Finally completed, here’s the InterArms PPK/S pistol featuring elephants and mammoths! Hence, the world’s smallest elephant gun!

    These older InterArms PPK/S’ are among my very favorites of the Walther series of pocket pistols. I like the extended frame with the short slide of the PPK.

    In my mind, they are among the best .380 caliber pocket autos ever!

    To see the works in progress, see this post and this post.

  •    WIP-PPKS WITH ELEPHANTS (PT2)   

    This is the other side of the PPKS that I posted previously. This side features 3 prehistoric mammoths! Again, each mammoth is less than 1/2″ in height.

    Once this pistol is complete, it will certainly be unique. I look forward to posting the completed gun soon!
