Giving a 1911 as a gift to someone for significant achievement.

I want to get the slide engraved with just words (name, date, etc.) and probably a relevant design on the grips. I've seen examples of what I want to do with the grips on Etsy, and some random Google images.  I'm waiting to hear back from a place I sent grip designs to.

I haven't looked real hard locally, but the trophy shops are set up to engrave soft metals, not a stainless slide. There are a lot of folks offering laser etching, but I don't want etching, I want actual engraving.

There's a trophy shop about 3 hours away advertising that they have an FFL and do Trust/NFA engraving, but every example on their website is in aluminum. I'll still reach out to them and ask.

Anyone have any experience with this? Do we have anyone here that does this kind of stuff? Any recommendations of who I could ship a slide to?
