Start by contacting Customer Service to describe your concept. Please note that not all firearms can be engraved, so please contact Customer Service before setting your heart on a customized gun.
Customer Service will help you interface with the Colt Custom Gun Shop staff. After we understand your requirements and specifications, the Custom Gun Shop will prepare a preliminary estimate that provides an approximate cost for the project. You then refine your specifications and request a formal quotation, for which we charge a small fee. The fee is applied to the cost of the project once it is started. The quotation process for a small project can be as simple as our quoting a price and you accepting it. On larger projects, it may entail extensive discussion with the customer, as well as sending sketches and photos back and forth before an accurate price can be finalized.
Once you approve the formal estimate, you will place your order through a local dealer who works with one of Colt's authorized distributors.
The Colt Custom Gun Shop can create custom Special Editions for organizations that desire to offer unique Colt firearms as presentation pieces. Those who are privileged to receive Special Edition Colt firearms treasure them for a lifetime as well as the organization that arranged for such a timeless gift.
||An example of the signature Special Editions that the Colt Custom Gun Shop can create is the West Point edition shown here, which is stamped with a special rollmark and then machine-engraved and finished with a gold wash. The West Point Special Edition, the design of which is modified for each class, is often purchased for presentation as a gift to graduating cadets. Other special editions have been created for law enforcement agencies, sporting organizations and veterans’ groups.
