This is what a proper self centering bench vise for gun engraving looks like. Note the depth of the jaws.
I think the only vise that gets close to this in the US is the yankee 992 vise you could see a pic in eBay I tried to get one of the italian ones like the one Sam showed in a thread I can’t find it at this time to post a pic any body that sean the tread knows they are really versatile

I put this “pedestal” vice together using that selfcentering vice to do a much larger than normal job. Toilet flange, bowling ball and the vice on a foot rotating shaft. The vice is super heavy. It’s super heavy. If it gets away from you it’ll surely break a toe or two
