One of our best and most versatile engravers is Sam Welch. Sam started engraving as a hobby and is largely self taught. Early in his engraving career, he had the good fortune of having engraver Ray Viramontez as his neighbor. Viramontez tutored him in the finer points of engraving techniques and some of the tricks of the trade. Sam can and does engrave about anything that is engraveable. Shown here is an engraved set of false sideplates for a Fox shotgun. Photos by Sam Welch
