Default Engraved 1910 Lefever Shotgun

Hi,

I think you will enjoy this.

Here is a 1910 Lefever Shotgun.... Link

http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/i...ftsideDone.jpg

Now for the incredable part:


http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/i...RRonLFtags.jpg

Notice the quarter?????

Roger L. Ronnie Is the master gunsmith that restores rare guns. When he gets a good one he makes a miniature of the rare gun and he is also engraving them..

These are functional scale guns.

Roger is a friend of Paul Knapp's (Paul is good friend of mine) so I got to see this in various states before he finished this gun.

Here is a link to the craftsmanship museum and Roger L Ronnies contrubutions to the museum.

http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Ronnie2.htm

Roger's other contrubutions to the museum are incredable gunsmithing and engraving.

Here is Pauls Display (largest know of functioning Miniature engines on display)

http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/KnappCol.htm

We just brought 40 more engines to the museum this past week making a total so far of 140 and they are up on the website.

Most all of these are Gas ignition engines not glow plug engines.

Paul makes the spark plugs for these engines. Gas engines really sound great..

Be sure not to miss the Corvette Small Block V-8 Engine,by Lee Root (hit 18,000 rpm in a test run) and the Ferrari V-12 Model Auto Engine, and 1937 Harley Davidson "Knucklehead.

Hope you enjoy these craftsman as much as I do. These are some of the best machinests in the world..

I know some of the best engravers, and all the rest of us, will be able to appreciate the skill and talent needed to produce these masterpieces..

If you are in San Diego (vista), Calf. Stop by the Museum these things are real and real jewels.
