Thanks for the kudos.
...and to 5758andrew: That's a good looking air rifle. I don't know who the best engraver is Australia is, but it looks like he's earned the title.
Don't know where in Australia you call home, but I have family in Lalor, Melbourne.
I have a very good friend in New Zealand that is also the best engraver in that country---His name is Andrew Biggs.
In answer to the background question Tim: you guessed it---the different techniques are indeed called "Stippled" or "Dot Punch".
I used a stippling tool for most of this work. It is just a carbide tool bit sharpened to a needle point.
JPC709...Thanks for the kind words.
@jrbman, Not just Colts. If it's engraveable, I'll cut it. Right now, I have a SS Ruger Alaskan, Kimber 1911, SS Bond Arms Derringer, Uberti SAA, S&W Model 27 and 2 Colt SAA's in the queue.
