I'm not a big fan of engraved guns. To me they look gawdy. 

I saw this Smith & Wesson K-22 engraved by Winston Churchill. I had no idea that he engraved guns after the war. In my opinion it's a beautiful gun. Not overly done and it has some touches I've never seen before like he flattened the sideplate screw heads. 

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Considered one of the best New England engravers during the fifties and early sixties. So few good ones these days.

Oh. I guess it's a different Winston Churchill. 

He sure does some impressive work.

From the looks of his work that's posted on his web site I bet that shotgun is a work of art. 

I have a K-22. It makes me look a better shooter than I am.

In my opinion, Smith & Wessons from a couple years after WWII until about 1984 are the best quality and have the best fit and finish. 

I also think that the ones built from 1959 until 1967 are the best of the best. 

I'm sure your K-22 a Masterpiece.
