Course Description
This class is designed to build confidence before continuing on to more complex firearms engraving. Rex has several patterns available, including a classic American scroll pattern reminiscent of the designs on turn-of-the-century Winchester and Henry firearms. The finished project can be installed on a Henry .22 lever-action rifle. Since the project is a receiver cover, no purchase of a gun is needed.
