Thats one of them custom stencil cerakote jobs. Like @Albroswift has been doing with his shooters.
Steel City has partially engraved for G17 gen 3s
I want to find a 1911 in 40 and do this .
@handydave is this a wrap or what?
But is one more thing on my wish list☹️
The one you posted pic of is most deffently a cerakote job. Cause its all painted on. If you could find a engraved slide like the one @Thatoneguy posted then have that cerakoted the engraving would add even more dimension to the piece. And would be way cool. Me personally i prefer the pinup images on the old war planes. Id say for a couple hundred bucks a man with basic common since and no how could put together a bare bones cerakote outfit to do his on projects on a small scale. Hell most parts will fit into a oven you allready have in your house. Basic airbrush set up stencil pack cerakote kit.
True on the pin ups.
But ya gotta love the vipers
A perfect example of the tail wagging the dog.

Some nice leather work in there also @HandyDave . And some chickens? @CatFood
Shotguns and ranch rifles, tons of AR’s.
We seem to spend a lot of time (and money) on projects, and almost as much taking pictures of them.
Start tying some flys and go fishing.
