Default looking for engraver

I had work done by two engravers in the mid 80's. Ken Hurst and a female named C.L. Barlow who is probably in her mid 40's now. I'm trying to locate them. I found Hurst's web site but the email link in bad. If anyone has info please send to gunsmt@earthlink.net

The Firearms Engravers Guild of America has a historian that may be able to help you. You might try posting the forum there as well.

Default keep them

I think Ken Hurst work has increased in cost, a lot, since the 1980's. I am sure you have seen from his web site that A promising engraver I found on the FEGA web sight is Jim Wark. If you check out his web site, www.888guns.com ,you can see a picture of a 9422M he did for me this year 2008.


Jim used a Forever postage stamp as a sample to engrave the liberty bell on the other side. vintage 1852

I am planning a 9422M Trapper Jim will engrave a picture of the the first US oil well. vintage 1859.
