If you like engraved arms, you can spend an hour or two gazing at gallery photos at the FEGA site.
Some are overwhelming. Beautiful, but almost too much at times. I would love to own a few understated engraved pieces, I think. Someday. Maybe. Not too busy, but a tad bit of limited elegance. Im thinking of a Nimschke pattern on a 1911.http://www.rrbarregulators.com/B-Folder/Ed-Westerly-Engraving.html
American scroll, how tight or small a pattern? Border or no? Deep shading?
How deep are your pockets again? :D
Keep it tastefully done, not too much, not too shallow, love to see your end product when you get there.

Thanks for the links guys.

This is the route I'm thinking. Some can be outright gaudy IMO.
I just was some simple deep scrolls in the slide, and a touch or two on the Frame. A happy medium that ads a personal touch...
