Default Lefever EE

Browsing GunBroker and noticed this Lefever. Whoever did the engraving on this gun was killing it that day. Especially love that dog on the trigger guard. Talk about detail!

It looks very much like Joseph Loy's work.

Not to denigrate other manufacturers, but I think Lefever had the best engravers/engraving. Dean, the shape of that Setter's head sure does look like Loy work.

Schacter says engraving done by Glahn.

He'll also change the chokes for you.

The setters on the earlier Parkerís look pretty good IMO. The later ones, well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

This is from a pretty early CH I used to own.

Some of the folks who scratched metal for Lefever were pretty good. I can't enlarge this here, but this is the side plate on the left side of my EE:



I have seen that dogs head on another gun recently. Its really good....

EDIT: Yep, same gun on Guns International. Or was....

I could be all wet here but I think Loy and Glahn both had a similar style. I am sure guys who know the various engravers and their styles can easily tell the difference.
