FINE FIREARM HAND ENGRAVING
We offer in-house hand-cut engraving of the highest quality,
for those who respect tradition and craftsmanship.
In addition to new-cut hand engraving, we offer engraving restoration services.
Brubaker Restorations is equipped with cutting edge technology for analyzing the residual markings left on the metal after the original engraving had worn out.
Our engraving restoration process, led by a licensed Architect with 10+ years experience in restoration in Europe, includes but is not limited to:
1. Historical analysis: typology, similar examples.
2. Photographic analysis of the object to restore; pattern analysis;
measurements and reconstruction; hand sketches and AI generated patterns.
3. Scaling the pattern and re-composing it according to the surviving traces
on the object to restore.
4. Final sketch.
5. Pattern transposed to engraving area.
The trigger bow below is a good example of engraving restoration at Brubaker Restorations.
The engraving on the action is original - the engraving on the trigger bow is restored.
We offer in-house laser engraving for the modern gun owner.
Brubaker Arms is equipped with a performant laser engraver that cuts through steel at ATF required depths for marking serial numbers. Same equipment is used for deep laser precision engraving or shallow metal etching, depending on your style.
While the cost of traditional hand-cut engraving can be prohibitive for EDCs or truck guns,
laser engraving can offer a decent and budget friendly alternative for the modern shooter.
From personalized imagery to classic American symbols, there is no limit to the level of customization that a laser engraving project can provide.
