    I was commissioned to engrave this for the Commander of the 23rd Fighter Squadron of the U.S. Air Force.
    I did the metal work, engraving, inlay and finish. Woodnut did the grips.
    These are also posted on my blog. You can enlarge them there.

    Carl, I'll get some better pictures for you in the near future. I ran out of "piddling time" and had to get back to work.
    This is one of those guns you'll want to have in your picture portfolio---I'm pretty sure this one wil get some national attention. (I'd be surprised if it didn't)

    A professional masterpiece from true professionals. Great work guys. Im jealous of the CO of the 23rd Fighter Squadron of the USAF.
