I believe I may have to give this a try ,very nice look at least to my eye ! Years ago I had an Early AH Grade that had very different engraving ,like a Hawk or Falcon carrying something ,very cool ! It was an Oscar Gaddy refinish and appeared to have been buffed a little too far maybe even before Oscar redid it by some one else , who Knows but with that said the engraving was very difficult to really see the detail , this may have done the trick !

Russ,
If the engraving you are trying to enhance is shallow, the Au Solvent seems to remove most of the background enhancement you want to leave in the engraving. I found that using the plastic end of a small paint brush to scrape the engraving background off, instead of using the solvent, left more of the background enhancement down in the engraving. It scrapes off easily and you can control the removal of the enhancement much better than using the solvent. I hope this helps.

Thanks Wayne , at this point I really don't know if I have a gun that needs enhancement of the engraving but this looks like something that would be nice to try ! The engraving on my BHE 410 Upgrade is difficult to pick out because of the Case Colors ,this might be the one ??? I have owned a few that could have been really good candidates for this !,

Russ, please let us know how that works on high-percentage case colors.
