    The sad fact is that if it isn't factory work - and this definitely isn't - is that unless the engraver is well-known - most guys won't pursue the piece.

    Engraved sidearms are very subjective and require that the potential buyer be drawn to the work.

    I'd like to see some close-up images of the engraving but I'm afraid it doesn't look very professional. There's a lot of coverage but there doesn't seem to be
    much "artistry" in terms of layout and execution.
