What a great story, piece of history and gift Ron.

I'll bet your grandson will cherish it forever...

Just a suggestion, you might do a history write up as both you and you wife recall of the gun, then attach that to the back of the case in an envelope.

That is super special Ron.  How old is the grandson?  Do you have any pictures of his grandfather that could be put in the box with it?  Is the sleeve the license in a UV sleeve?  Don't know if they make them or not, but if it is to be displayed it would help to preserve it.  Or maybe the glass could be a UV glass?

But that whole package - way cool Ron.

My wife is ahead of you on that thought. I inserted a small picture of him below the gun butt and she is making up a history of the gun to be inserted behind the license. I'll look into UV protection after Christmas, too close now to make any changes.

Good deal Ron...not surprising your wife is ahead of me...wive's are like that.:P

 

This is one special Christmas gift for sure...not just the item which is way cool in itself, but the legacy along with the gift is priceless.You are awesome & thoughtful grandparents.

 I wanted to also tell of the time I fired this pistol with my elderly father-in-law. We fired it at a pop lid on a tree and it was very true. Then he wanted to shoot his old shotgun. It was double barrel Damascus spiral wound with one disabled firing mechanism . Scared the hell out of me just thinking of firing such a thing, especially one that old. After pleading with him for quite a while, he gave up. It now hangs on the wall of my daughters house.(in one piece:))
