Dale Woody Firearms Engraving.
Gun Engraver using the Old Factory Styles.
Gun engraving, lettering restoration and refinishing after engraving. Full time gun engraver for over 23 years. I work on older Colt, Marlin and Winchesters for most of my work. Marlin Ballard and Remington Hepburn Firearm engraving, Lettering restorations. Gun engraving in the factory styles from 1848 to 1945. Gun engraving is my full time work. I am experienced with Lettering, metal work, and re-cutting old or worn engraving. Some poor looking antiques can be restored to become treasures. Case color, and gold line inlay work can be seen on the refinishing page. I do not work on stainless steel, Aluminum Alloy, Welding and machine shop work are done by John Taylor Machine.

Gun Engraving like the older factory styles. I try to match the work of the historic Gun engravers. Usually guns are engraved in a style from the era they were made. Most of my customers have a general idea of what they want and let me work within their budget. If you would like to choose a gun engraving pattern, I can send pictures from my books. Or, If you find something you like, just mail or E mail me the picture. Firearms Engraving Takes time and I now have a 8 week backlog. Lettering and small restorations are done faster. I turn these quickly to get guns back to their customers as quickly as I can. Gold Inlay, Blueing, Case Color and Satin & Bright Nickel finishes are pictured on the Refinishing page. Note that the pictures do not show depth or shading detail very well. It is difficult to photograph steel to see fine detail.
Payment. I accept checks or money orders. Payment is due when the work is done, not before.
