I am pleased to offer this 1987 S&W Model 19-5 engraved by Master Engraver Walter Shannon. Walter Shannon ran a gun engraving business in the 1970s and '80s after he retired from the Sante Fe railroad. He worked out of Waldron, Arkansas, and Palestine, Tx. from what we have learned. He was a certified "Master Engraver" and his style was very similar to the well-known work of Cole Agee. Mr. Shannon's work featured scroll engraving in a classic style, he did not do game scenes or portraits. Mr. Shannon applied a signature stylized "S" on the bottom of the trigger guards of the guns he engraved, as well as stamping the grip frame with his last name and occasionally the date in which the work was completed. In the 1980s his wife began engraving in her own style after learning the skill from him and helped with the business. Walter Shannon died in 1999 in Palestine Texas at the age of 80. His work has really begun to be recognized and appreciated in the last ten years or so.

This Smith & Wesson Model 19-5 is stamped on the inside edge of the grip frame "Engraved by Shannon". The trigger guard also has the stylized "S" that easily identifies the engraving as Walter's work. The gun was nickel-plated after it was engraved and is in new and unfired condition. This custom engraved Smith & Wesson Model 19-5 is a beautiful piece by an engraver whose work is becoming more well known and appreciated by the day. It would be an excellent addition to any collection and a sound investment.
