Does anyone know of a laser engraving service?

Googling turned up the usual disconnect. What we gun people mean by the word engraving is not what computerists and techno people understand by the same word.

What is sought is something that turns up work like that seen on Boxall and Edmiston doubles:

Obviously the ideal would be totally hand cut engraving, but sometimes the value of the candidate gun does not jutify the 50 Euro per hour fee charged these days. A friend's 150 Euro Greener GP is the likely candidate.

I know I am old school, but laser engraving is a contradiction. It may be ornamentation, sure it looks good, but engraving is done manually, and is an artistic skill. There is no inherent value other than the cost, there is no artistic value save what it costs. It really is just another choice.

A Belgian Browning Dianna grade gun is worth a lot more than a grade I because it has fancier wood and checkering, and a well done engraving pattern, done by hand.

If you want to have your name on your gun, so ahead. If you were to be gifting a gun to a valued employee or friend, I'd have it engraved by hand.

Remember, I told you I was old school

Yes, you are correct. Old school is good and it is classic and it is right. 50 Euro is inexpensive.
