Engraving a shotgun receiver

I would like to have engraving done on a shotgun receiver. Does anyone recommend anyone they know who does it on firearms and seen there work? I like the design on the browning ducks unlimited tribute with the Labrador's. Thank you.

You may want to check if that design is copyrighted.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Thanks for the reply WW. The design is nice for sure but I don't want all of that. Mainly the Labrador engraving's. I guess what I trying to say is, I want the dog engrave if anyone knows who could do a true labrador. I contacted a couple local jewelry shops. They can only do words, letters, no drawings. Any help would be great. Thank you

A quick google search turned up these guys. They are on my side of the state but there appeared to be others. I just entered "Shotgun receiver engraving Pennsylvania"

How much are you willing to spend and what level of work are you looking for? Quality engraving is not cheap. Geoffroy Gournet is one of the better ones in the business. His price list gives an idea of the cost of good engraving Price List - Geoffroy Gournet - Master Engraver

It would be unlawful for a local jeweler to take in a gun for engraving unless they possessed a FFL. Your gun's receiver will need to be taken down to the white before work begins and reblued after engraving is completed as well.
