    Since engraving the last two Colt Pythons and a couple of other "parts", here is one of my custom T/C Encore barrels that I have been working on for quite a while.

    With the 4-port muzzle brake that I made and threaded onto the barrel, there is still no seam line showing between the muzzle brake and barrel, and I am able to engrave up onto the brake with no negative affect of the seam line showing.

    The barrel is 1.200" in diameter, with an effective barrel length of 16 1/2", with an overall barrel and brake length of 18".

    Once the barrel work is completed, I will start engraving on the receiver, but that will be quite a ways down the road.

    I like it. What is the barrel steel? Is it easy enough to get into?
