sfc rick, I have never heard of Baron Technology CNC engraving. Is the Ruger Vaquero you posted an example of such engraving?

Yes, my New Vaquero Deluxe Edition uses Baron Technologies  CNC'd process.

sfc rick, thanks for the reply. Actually, I'm sure I have seen that type of engraving now, I just didn't know it. I think it's very nice.

llanerosolitario, none of the pictures you posted came through.  Recently Photobucket changed policy to a paid service, not free.  Perhaps you did not know about that.

As regards the Baron technology laser engraving, well we all have our own opinions, so here's mine.  I like very much some of the designs on their website.  However, I care not at all for what they did to the single actions, including the Ruger shown above.  No stippling may be part of it.  They just seem to lack artistic design, I guess.  Not sure how to put it.

My Good Confessor Marvelous ...

If I might.  The "Capt. Schaeffer Colt" reproductions are coming in in small batches.  They are being built in limited number.  I have no clue how "limited" but "not a lot" comes to mind.  Ergo, it might behove, to place ones self on EMFs list of "Who's Wanting One" or "Who Wants Two" thereby insuring ones self the opportunity of ownership.

Once set up, the Capt. Schaeffer repros are absolute whiz Bangs to play with.  Understanding that under barrel loading lever is almost as useful as Teats on a Boar.  Loaded off gun with ones propellant of choice will generate a most harmonious experience.

Just a thought.  Oh, and they look REALLY KOOL!!

Haven't been shooting in the last year until just recently. I could be doing better.
I liked the TR gun enough to buy another for a new brace of 7.5" guns. The second gun is even better than the first. Targets are 18 round groups of 250gr factory HS loads, 3 x 6 rounds, off hand at 15 yards.

New gun's target is on the left, original TR gun's target on the right. I shot the original gun first. The older gun has a lot better trigger than the one just out of the box. Still the new one shoots much closer to POA/POI. I have almost zero endurance right now to shooting groups. But either gun will shoot good groups. I am still impressed with these guns as a faithful reproduction of the 1st Gen Colt BP frames. I really like that they shoot! Not just another pretty face

That TR Cimarron Pietta is gorgeous.  I recently bought a Cimarron Pietta "two tone" SAA with laser engraving.  Not only is it very sharp looking I'm amazed by the smooth action and snug lock up.  The boss at my local gun shop had a look at it and inquired as to whether I paid extra for the nice action.

I may have to spring for a "Teddy" myself.  If a guy fancies a 5.5" bbl. the George Patton model is pretty hard to pass up as well.  The laser engraving is getting much nicer all the time.

Right off, I love the Cimarron TR model and would like to add one to the stable at some point. Probably along with a few other laser engraved SAA's.

I also agree with the critiques and don't think it comes off as "snooty" at all. It is what it is. There is a big difference between "real" hand engraving and laser engraving. Laser engraving is indeed "flat". It is greatly improved over years past but it still ain't the same and there's nothing "snooty" about pointing that out. I happen to appreciate all levels of good quality engraving for what they are and pretty much refuse to pay for master level work. I love my lasered Pietta's but it's absolutely true that they're not quite like the hand engraved guns but I enjoy them all the same. Because I didn't pay anywhere near what I paid for the hand work.

As this thread had appeared again, I thought I'd show a related item.  In this video of Cimarron Show Guns:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZDDllTNNRs

The hand engraved Teddy Roosevelt Uberti is shown (along with its carved ivory grips like Teddy's gun) at the :32 point of the video. 

(I took all the pics shown in the video, mostly while packing guns to go to Shot Show.  Plus a few of my own in there  Grin )

Strange.  Or just different or just picky in my old age.  There I was, fat (yes) dumb (well not so much) and happy (very) building Cap Guns for myself and few friends.  Quickly settled on Pietta.  Building all sorts.  1860s, 1851s (real .36s), 1862s, and all of them were the standard guns, CCH and blue.  Some civilian, some martial (with those gawd awful extra screws) just having fun.

Then, I ran head on into the Pietta "Marshalls."  1851 pattern only in .44 and laser engraved.  I were smitten.  Since then, I have divested myself of all of my previous "Plane Jane" Cap Guns and concentrated strictly on laser engraved models.  I think they are absolutely superb.
Hand chased means absolutely nothing to me.  I can't afford the same level of engraving when it's hand chased as I can when it's done by laser.  The latest laser engraving is VERY nice. 

Now ..... I need bigger pay checks for more engraved toys  Cheesy

PS:  Abilene gotz some really nice toys.
