"Factory engraving adds another dimension and significant value to my Smith & Wesson revolvers and pistols. The custom engraving shop has produced notable work, including the fine detail and old-world craftsmanship on my .45 ACP Model 1911. I am immensely pleased with the results."

~Peter DeRose, President, Smith & Wesson Collector's Association
