Thread: Looking for an engraver.

  1. #1

    Default Looking for an engraver.

    Are there any firearms engravers in Alaska, Anchorage or the Valley specifically? I need to get the caliber engraved on my barrel before I get it blued. When we barreled it the smith didn't have a stamp to mark my 400 Whelen and I would really rather have it a little fancier than just block letters. If no engravers, any jewelers one might take the job to? Thanks.

    I have heard of this guy Jim White for a while now in Wasilla.

    I was considering taking a few guns to him myself in the near future. Your question prompted me do do a little research to find his contact info to help you out as well as myself. My search turned up an old post here on this site with some contact info.

    Please let us know how this works out.

    Good luck.

    IIRC, WWG uses White for some of their engraving...

    Apparently not. I just tried to email him at that address and it came back undeliverable.

    I also just went through my old address book. Jim did a rifle for me aboutt 15 years ago. I still had the number but it is disconnected now.

    The guys at Chimo said he was in the book last I asked about him.

    I got the same thing when I tried to email him today. It came back as undeliverable.
