Photoengraving

Post by d findley » Fri Oct 12, 2012 3:03 pm

In the late 70s Ruger was experimenting with "photoengraving" (etching). A guy by the name of Bill Faringer was hired. Faringer had a lot of experience with firearms etching, mostly on special editions. I believe he had worked at Winchester and Savage. Jim Triggs was in charge of drawing the patterns, Bill F. doing the etching, Triggs eventually took the whole operation over. It was dropped after only a few guns had been embellished. Here are a couple of original Factory papers on the subject.

I believe I attached the same one twice. I'll try again.
