    Question: Inscribed Model 1886 Winchester

    I have to wonder why the engraver used scribe lines. A good friend of mine was a master letter engraver on Philly's jeweler's row.

    It's a very difficult thing to be able to develop a "style" of engraving. Yours is unique to you and very distinctive. I like it a lot!
