Yep, Jim Carmichael knew what he was talking about. Thanks for reminding us Stan (but we all knew that didn't we?)

Thanks guys for the nice comments on this Fox. It’s currently back at the engraver for final polish and French gray finish. I am hearing the reimport process is taking a long time currently.
Probably won’t have it back in time for quail hunting this year but I would rather have it right than right now.
I hope to post some pictures shortly when it heads back to Chris for the bluing, and wood installation.
I need to see if I can fly to Canada and hand carry back. I am checking on all of the requirements to do this. I would love to have it by my 65th birthday in March.

Thanks for a lot of positive responses. I got word today the Polish and French gray has been completed and the gun is on its way back to Chris for final fitting and checkering. I will post some updated pictures once I get them.

Those Mearns Quail engraved on the bottom are fantastic.

VATURKEY I agree the engraver captured the Mearns quail perfectly, as well as the covey flush.
Here is a Mearns Rooster I took this past week with my new pup for comparison.
