Incredible work John, you should write a book on how to do this. Just to let you know that I think your book is a necessity in any engravers toolbox(or wanna be like me). Superb work!

I saw this gun today at the Ohio Gun Collectors Assn. Show in Wilmington, OH. Unfortunately the table holder was nowhere to be seen so I did not get a chance to hold it for a good look. It was very impressive.
