    Art in Steel

    Work underway by the master engraver on a PK-made slabside in Darra Adam Khel, NWP, Pakistan. This mag isn't quite finished yet - other side isn't done and the visible side will get cleaned up.

    Would you like to own a mag like this? Each is unique, no two are alike.

    Still trying to figure out the end cost, arriving here on a Form 6. So many cost factors, so many unknowns... This amount of work could easily run into 4 figures here, so I can safely say it will be considerably less.

    The engraver is considered one of the top 4 in a country renown for engraving, and at that level, he and his sons are middle-class by PK standards, so they are paid relatively well and the amount of time required for the handwork is significant (I'll find out in man-hours).

    Think beyond the mags, imagine the whole gun engraved.

    Nice metal work.
    That must take a very long time.
    The furniture is much less appealing to me.

    All 10 of the mags we (fellow member Ashfaq and I) initially commissioned are finished, each has a different design, all are incredible. I've got a video that was shot in the shop right after completion (tap-tap-tap...), but its 15MB and I can't figure out how to post it.

    As mentioned previously, the permitting process at the US and PK ends is a learning experience, and still underway, but they'll be here eventually.
