Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), the nation's largest firearms manufacturer, announced today the creation of The Ruger Studio of Art and Decoration. The Studio is a custom gun engraving facility specifically dedicated to the creation of individualized firearms artistry. It is uniquely staffed and equipped to provide clients with the finest in custom engraved Ruger firearms.
For centuries, artistically embellished firearms have been a hallmark of the powerful and privileged. Ruger is now able to offer discerning sportsmen and firearms connoisseurs individually adorned firearms that are unique expressions of their personal tastes. The wishes of discriminating owners and collectors will be interpreted in steel, fine wood, precious metals, and stones to deliver original, one-of-a-kind works of art.
"From the beginning, a very small number of Ruger firearms have been embellished for memorable occasions or for presentation. We will now be able to create unique, individual works of art by fulfilling the wishes of firearms owners who appreciate artistry and craftsmanship," said Sturm, Ruger & Company President, Stephen L. Sanetti.
"Ruger has assembled a group of artisans without peer. Our Master Artist and Chief Engraver, Paul Lantuch, is a virtuoso whose experience spans over 30 years. The Studio is composed of a dedicated and talented group of craftsmen quite skilled in an international array of decorative styles and techniques. Paul and his staff will work to accommodate the client's every preference and taste to create the expression of the owner's dream rendered in steel, wood and precious metals," Sanetti noted.
The first works of art created by The Ruger Studio of Art and Decoration are being displayed at the Safari Club International's 32nd Annual Convention in Reno, Nevada on January 21-24.
