Thank you Sir, 2 years includes finding the weapon (which was finally gifted to me) then finding the right pattern then availability of an engraver the actual work would have taken a week but the process involved and the coordination is what took so much time.

Beautiful engraving brother.....looks like the weapon is from the collection of a Columbian drug lord ! :P
Your pistol is surely an eye catcher........preserve it properly, so your future generations could enjoy it !!

Thank You all for your kind words. I am still working on a new trigger, hammer, magazine ejector and grips.

@Apalo

Sir the actual pistol was a gift it is a Remington Rand 1911 and the serial number Dates it to 1943. As for the rest of the cost i haven't really been keeping track.

Basharat Bhai congrats for completing such a nice project. The gun looks great with the make over and
the engraving looks quite fine. Did you get it engraved in Karachi?

@ Ali
Thanks again sir for your praise

@Ilyas
Sir the work was done in Karachi but the engraver is not here on a permanent basis, he was here on some personal work and i requested him to do the engraving for me while he was visiting.

@romerate

Sir,

Thank you for your kind words. The engraving was done in Karachi but the craftsman was visiting from Pakhtunkhwa it took him two days working from Fajr to Isha only taking a break for namaz and meals
