Engraving....too little, enough, too much

Recommended Posts

Not really sure. That's the story in the Browning Superposed book. 

 

I will post a photo of another one of my Pointer superpose for a comparison tonight.

Willie, It's really a treat seeing your guns and hearing the stories about them.

Thanks Cooter. I've been busy last few nights but I'll try to get the other Pointer on by weekend.

An early 1900s British 16 bore that looks good to me.

Dave - is the lock latch engraved with a grouse tail feather?

I have none on my Beretta 682 Super Sport. A friend  of mine has a Krieghoff Super Scroll?  It is a beauty, but I would be afraid to scratch it (I'm not easy on any of my equipment).

I love really well done engraving as long as it's not way over the top.  No use for gold inlaid peacocks, etc.  What matters much more is a gun's fit, finish, mechanical function and handling qualities.  If all that's present, well executed engraving, like highly figured wood, is a big plus, but I'd rather have a well-made good-handling gun devoid of decoration than a tarted up crow bar shaped like a gun.

Another Browning Superpose Pointer for comparison.

That was the idea but it really didn't work well given the shape of the lever.
