This is decision time, colours either stay on or come off!

I went back to your 6 May post on this gun. It is a tough decision to leave the gun case colored. The engraving looked great without the case coloring. I also like the patina over time (use) of guns that are case colored. Since the coloring is done, if it was my choice, I'd leave it case colored.

Sure looks good to me.

Definitely leave the colour.

If it was me, I too would leave the case colour hardening on. It looks splendid!
Jeff Powers on May 27, 2016 at 8:26 am
I say leave the color.
Mark Mitchell on May 27, 2016 at 8:36 am
Colour on for me too

Stunning! I'd leave the colour!

Good Day Simon,
Gosh Darn Simon, won't you ask your followers easy questions, like if we should go to war....etc. What great engraving this is Simon, the rose and scroll is normally not my favorite, but this gun really rocks my boat...so to speak. But I think it is an easy choice, leave the color on this wonderful piece of art!!! My hats off to the family duo for such a great job of engraving, also to whoever did the case coloring, its great. As you may know I look at plenty engraved guns these days Simon, and this gun takes a back seat to no shotgun, I get to see today. Just my humble opinion Sir. Thank for showing the progress, look forward to seeing this gun finished!!

Difficult choice, the gun looks fantastic in both colour and grey. The stock colour and the amount of fiddle in it will probably make it easier to make a decision. Superb photos.

Simon the Explora has spoken.Sadly the paying customer has no choice in the matter and must accept the inevitable!

Such perfect harmony among the elements may never again be achievable.
