Introducing Wilson Combat Factory Engraved Handguns - Engraved By Award-Winning Artist Wayne D'Angelo - http://eepurl.com/bw4PGf

Wilson Combat now offers three levels of classically styled
engraving coverage and also the option to add the owner’s initials (not available separately). D’Angelo hand engraving can be applied to stainless steel or blued steel firearms only (not Armor-Tuff®) and can be ordered as an option on new orders or those orders that have not yet started the build process.




Check out the website for more pics of the various packages here
More info on the three levels of engraving can be found here...

BEAUTIFUL!!

While engraved firearms aren't quite my style (I'm too oriented towards functionality, even for a "safe queen"), I certainly enjoy looking at them and admiring this superb level of craftsmanship. Glad to see this as an added option ... a nice enhancement to Wilson's offerings to 1911 enthusiasts.

Not my thing, but the engraving is just beautiful. I can't help but notice that on all these photos of new guns like the Vickers Elite etc that the Endmill Ball cuts line up perfectly. Yes, I know the reasons why WC can't guarantee it.

Big fan of hand engraved guns, badges, silver dining sets, etc. Typically no two specimens are exactly alike; close, but not exact.

OMJMB!!! Would you look at that! As a man that doesn't have long to live, what a gorgeous gun to have strapped to my side or smoking in my hand on that day the Lord comes calln'
( would mind if he would hold off another 20 or so just so I can put a little wear on it for my son either ha ha)

Any chance they will be taking in previously sold Wilson's for engraving? I would love to have 1 of my CQB's done. On my knees begging.

If not, contact Brian Powley. His work is great. One day, I'd like to have him do a project for me.

It's not that easy-the gun would have to be completely stripped prior to the engraving and refinished afterwards. It would be much more expensive.

How about stainless guns?

Love that level 3 !
All the pics show guns with FCS's. If the slide is ordered naked does the engraving extend across the empty area where the FCS would normally be?

Would love to see what it would look like on a stainless with carry cuts! Really nice.

Number three is the way to go, beautiful.

Is the charge the same on a stainless pistol?
