Bro. Steve, have you figured out the lopin yet?
Yes. I know how these word Damascus patterns are made.
I'm plotting a post, to answer the question about how Pieper got his name in the pattern.
I don't remember seeing the A. Arthur barrel before. I'm interested in finding photos of any known barrels with words in the pattern. I've got Gramme, Pieper, Remington and now this Arthur. I thought I had seen the Colt in one of the books in my library; but I have so many books.... Haven't found it yet.
I would appreciate any large format images of any of these barrels! Some of the images that I have are not high quality.
