Engraving options available:
- Scroll (pictured) – This design is derived from the classic American scroll engraving from around the 1850s. It features bold, flowing scroll work with single line shading and classic punch dot background in the interior of the design to provide extensive, clean coverage.
- Flare – Flare Cut consists of heavy, deep engraving cuts that meet together to form a bright, sparkling pattern that has the look of heavily sculpted engraving. This style results in an intricate, unique design which is also very durable.
- Grape – This style features leaves and vines flowing across the surfaces of the pistol. It has deep roots in the history of engraving, having been used on firearms over the past several hundred years. Grape leaves, vines, and grape clusters alternate along the pistol, with fine line shading for depth and movement.
- Colt – This custom BBQ design inherits its styling from the finely engraved Colt pistols of the early 20th century. The style features Colt-style scroll with punch dot background and fancy borders to accent the lines of the pistol.
