Bruce, I assume that's Robert Runge's engraving and not his son Bob'. Very nice, very very nice indeed

Scott Kittredge reminded me of this video the other day, perhaps some of you have already seen this, at 20:45 Robert Runge explains his job at Remington while engraving a custom Model 1100 in 1969. Is this father or son?

I believe the Grandfather was a barrel person or such. His name was named on many stock book entries. Engravers were not mentioned in stock book entries.

The Parker Story should have that information. I'll go take a look.
