Default RES Engraving - 20 Photos

Robert Strosen of RES Engraving provided some wonderful examples of his engraving of classic shotguns.





This is a Fox which will be completed for less than the cost of the basic CSMC AH Fox! Robert restocked this gun also.















This is an AYA



While I was photographing Robert’s work Chris Rossiter, a young engraver of Custom Stocks and Steel came to ask Robert’s advice.



This is “Gunner’s Gun” which belongs to my friend Rich A.





This Parker has extensive work on it.













The colors were induced by me so that the engraving would have more contrast.

Bob does nice work thats for sure and he is fair priced with a reasonable turn around time. I'll be hunting with "Gunner's Parker" this fall. I saw Bob last year at The Southern, Hausmanns and the U.P. shoot. It was there that I saw and handeled some of his Fox guns and talked to others who had work done by him. With all the positive comments I looked no further for the artist to engrave my project.

Craig I agree with you about the CSM Fox's. They are very nice gun and I just bought an FE 410 but I like Bob's engraveing. It just so happens I have a Fox Sterlingworth 20 that could be another project. While at Hausmanns I saw where a smith took a Sterlingworth and made false side plates with crystal cocking indicators What a nice gun that could be turned into. Gunner locked on point and a flushing Pheasant on one side and a Grouse o n the other.

There are pictures of Dewey Vicknair's sideplate Fox on his website and more on the Custom Guns subforum on the Fox website.
