    Back when they used to do pretty ornate carving on the old long rifles. They did better work than that. The star looks like something that was done while inspried by too much alcohol. Good luck. Too bad you could not find something coll to inlay over it if the burn goes too deep. We used to fix a lot of mess ups with inlays on muzzle loaders.

    I can attest to why I personalized one weapon. When my father passed I had a custom Ruger built. I had "In memory of Sid Rawdon" inscribed on the barrel. This pistol was mine. This was presented to my brother to hand down because he had more sons than I. I am laughing now because my one son is more into firearms than my brothers. It is no big deal because at the same time I had a clone made for me that I hunt with. I did not have the inscription put on my pistol. If my younger brother passes before me I am to pass it down to whom ever is good with guns. Would I do another firearm with a personal inscription, no. Especially on the wood, wood is to beautiful to scar up. You can replace barrels and such.

    This also reminds me of a ROA i was about to buy for $150. Someone used an scribing (electric) tool to put there initials in the frame. It was the most shaky job I ever saw. It was deep too. Ended up passing on it. To much metal to be removed to make it look good.

    I have to wonder if a youngster was responsible for the "customization". That might look fairly official in the eyes of 12 year old "Deputy PB".

    I have wanted to catch the "Artful Carver" for years. I would put his hands in a vice and use a cheater bar to close it. He runs around with Bubba and was last seen fleeing in a green Yugo.

    I have no problem with engraving that will be part of the gun's identity if it is professionally done. Normally I would prefer it be on the metal in a tasteful size and in a location where it flows or fits in with the manufactures stamping or decoration.

    I had these done a couple of Christmas' ago. Heritage Rough Riders for the Wife / daughters / granddaughters ( always have called them my Angels so an "A" on theirs with a number designation for the order they came into my life ), Son in Laws ( SnL with # designation ), Grandsons (GS with # designation ).





    Not opposed to the engraving or decoration - just want it tastefully done ...

    I don't mind nicely done engraving and carving. I don't like a lot of these new guns that have big logos and instructions stamped in the metal.

    Why didn’t you just cut a cup into the stock and inlay a medallion or ornamental plug? Isn’t the stock sanded down kinda narrow now, the way you did it?
    Also, isn’t it far less expensive to just purchase another set of stocks or just the butt stock and refinish the forearm to match?
    Or did I miss something from the OP?
