A reasonable gun engraver???

I have a Vaquero 357 thats SS and i want to jazz it up a bit. I dont want a full coverage of engraving just enough to spice it up so its not so boring. I have a $250 budget. Can anyone recomend somebody that will do somthing like this in that price range all i found was like 450,550,750!!! Jeez help.

Kinda hard to set a budget on GOOD engraving. There's low cost results and there's GOOD results. You'll get what you pay for. I'd suggest saving a bit more and go with someone that's reputable.

Calvin, That's a fine looking gun.

He did a nice engraving on it.

I would think that $250.00 would get the front site done. That is a very impressive revolver. Wonder how those guys learn that. One screw up and you just wrecked the whole thing and have to buy a new gun for the guy. My!

Call him and ask him. I swapped out work for the Engraving so I don't know the price, but I think he is reasonable on prices.

He ought to put an add on here. I bet business would boom. You could have ARMY, Marines, Navy, Air Force or whatever put on there. Might have to give him a call.

This guy seemed very reasonable on his rates, but I don't have any first-hand experience.
