Description

This Smith & Wesson Model 66-1 Double Action Revolver exemplifies exceptional craftsmanship, further elevated by the artistry of Ray Viramontez, a distinguished member of the Firearms Engravers Guild of America (FEGA). Constructed in 1980, this firearm is adorned with Viramontez’s distinctive embellishments, making it a masterpiece of engraving art.

The artistic enhancements begin at the muzzle and breech end of the barrel, where dual gold bands add a touch of elegance, beautifully complemented by delicate leafy engravings. The barrel is a canvas of intricate floral scrollwork covering 80% of its surface. This design is skillfully balanced with negative space that accentuates the engraving’s intricate details. The sides of the frame are almost entirely covered in a similar floral scroll, with a lush leaf pattern gracing the top strap, adding depth and texture to the design.

Continuing the nature theme, this Smith & Wesson Model 66-1 features four stunning gold inlays. On the left side, a regal fox is poised attentively, and a dynamic scene of a deer in mid-sprint is situated below the cylinder release. Opposite, on the right side, an illustration of an agile hare in motion and a hawk engaged in a hunt adds movement and life to the side plate. The theme carries over to the cylinder, where twin gold bands and leafy engravings encircle its rear, and a floral scroll is artfully positioned among the flutes.

The artwork reaches its pinnacle with Viramontez’s signature, “RV,” subtly inscribed at the base of the side plate. This signature marks the revolver as authentic and signifies its prestigious origin.

This Smith & Wesson Model 66-1 is not just a firearm but a collectible work of art, representing the pinnacle of engraved firearm craftsmanship. It is a significant piece that would enhance any collection of finely engraved firearms, embodying the intersection of functionality and exquisite artistry.
