This guy is laser engraved. Could be a neat look on an old 686 or a good looking 60/70’s revolver for sure. May have to dig one up and take it to the laser engraver down the road now.It's fancy, and if trying your hand at artistic design on a polymer block pistol is your thing I say go for it. If you can do it well, more power to you.
I'm very much a utilitarian kind of guy when it comes to $400-500 handguns. While I respect the skill involved in the craftsmanship as well as the innovation, this type of pistol is definitely not my taste, which kind of lessens my enthusiasm for the work...but hey, this guy probably doesn't want to or need to give a shit about what I think.
I'd like to see what he can do to a decent 1911 or classic revolver like a Python.
Wonder how many thousands you just cost me, @Ledzep .Buying a Glock is too much work on a Glock (is my bias against 2x4 shaped grips showing?).
It's interesting machining... sometimes, but I know one Jesse Kaufmann that hand engraves anything any Glock has ever been to shame.
Impressive engraving by Jesse Kaufmann. Note how the scope rings have been engraved to perfectly match the engraving pattern on the Remington 547 action. Who says fine craftsmanship is dead? There's a fellow up in South Dakota, Jesse Kaufmann, who produces some of the most handsome engraving...bulletin.accurateshooter.com
