    For my birthday my wife paid to have the cylinder on my month old 637PC engraved by a gentleman here in CenTex.
    Don't ask why, I'm just a sucker for engraving haha

    How much does something like that cost to get done?

    Looks Great!

    Consider it a way of bringing out the artist dwelling deep within.

    Hey thanks fellas, I'm really enjoying this weapon. Might be the most well engineered trigger I have ever felt.
    If y'all have never gotten range time on a performance center weapon I would highly recommend it.
    I have read the horror stories about the older 637's but these new ones (mine left the shop one month ago today) are incredibly well built IMO. I've been punching the X out of every target in sight. And they disappear IWB.

    Nice work and I like the grips too.

    The only thing that bothers me about PC guns, they are what the S&W guns off the line used to be and now they make you pay more for the same quality. (a lot more) IMO it's just not right...

    I gave 5 flat for mine out the door. I also have an LCR 357 that ran around the same price. But I've got to be honest, the price versus the way this thing performs was too much to overlook. I'm in love haha

    I don't blame you, the triggers on the PC revolvers are every bit as good as the triggers that made the reputation for S&W all those years ago. I have a few current S&W revolvers and none can compare to the butter smooth trigger of my 1948 M&P.

    I go up and down with engraving. For my taste, there is a thin line between cool and tacky. I like what you had done to your gun! Enough bling to be cool, but not so much as to be distracting. Very nicely done, friendo!

    Thanks Timbo, that's exactly what I was shooting for. I just wanted a personalized gun that would stand out for me. I am also a huge fan of showcasing the skill sets of others. I enjoy carrying someone's artwork around with me, and I think I have that in the weapon, the engraving, and my tattoo!

    not a fan of engraving. I don't even like the lawyer warnings, nra logos, or makers marks on my guns. I prefer my women that look beautiful without makeup.

    Awesome! Where'd your wife get the engraving done? You said central TX? I'm in NTX, Dallas to be precise. My nephew wants a 1911 engraved. Yours looks pretty good so I might just send my nephew over to your guy. Thanks in advanced, feel free to msg me the info if you like.
