Engraved Seecamp just arrived!
« on: June 20, 2012, 05:18:35 PM »
Just got this back from Michael Gouse who did, as usual, a great job.  The "Marte Suo Tutus" ("Save by my own efforts") is my Celtic family motto.  The "Sgain Dhu" on the backstrap loosely means "black (hidden, as in covert) tooth" and refers to the Scots' boot knife.  Click to enlarge.

Now that is what I call an elegant job of engraving! Not even the magazine plate was forgotten. Congratulations to you for the concept and to Mr. Gouse for the execution.

Thanks guys.  All credit to Mr. Gouse...other than the inscriptions, he had free hand to provide something with a Celtic appearance, and boy did he deliver.  Most of my other pistols are black, so this is probably the only engraved one that I will own.  I may have to change my handle since the R9 is now primary and the SW32 is "backup."  Not to be forgotten however:

John:

It would appear that you have also somehow managed to obtained the prototype Stealth chambered for .308 Winchester.  How is your wrist holding up under the recoil?  ;)   ;D

I do notice a tad more recoil, but the forward inch of the bullet sticking out of the muzzle really helps in aiming the shot.  On the way now to the range with SW32, R9 Covert and Boberg to get re-acquainted after two months away from home.

Mea maxima culpa! On that previous post of mine, delete the word "Stealth" and substitute in lieu thereof the word "Covert".    :-[
