STYLES OF ENGRAVING

The Colt Custom Gun Shop offers several styles of engraving, each with its own unique features. Scrollwork is adapted to fit the size, shape and contour of every firearm. Three grades of engraving are offered: Standard-basic American style, engraver not recorded; Expert-master quality scroll work, engraver signed and recorded; and Master-intricate scrollwork with precious metal inlays, signed by the engraver and recorded.

AMERICAN: Developed in the mid-19th century, this is the most popular engraving style for American firearms.

ENGLISH: English engraving is more delicate than the American style, with tighter scrolls and finer shading.

NIMSCHKE: Nimschke is named for the firearms engraver who helped create the American style. This design features rich scrollwork, a heavily punched dot background, fine edge curls and delicate borders.

CUSTOM GRIPS AND ACCESSORIES

Offered in the Colt Custom Shop are custom grips made of several materials including Walnut, Rosewood, Ebony, Mother of Pearl, Buffalo horn, Ivory and North American Elk. Hand checkering in a plain or double diamond pattern are also offered. Special edition grip medallions may be requested and produced in accordance with your specifications, including choice of metal, finish and decorative motif or symbol.
