Lebeau-Courally's craftsmen specialize in the finest engraving. Available in a wide selection of standard or special styles and subjects to suit individual customers'wisches; fine or deep engraving or carving, abstract scrolls, flowers or other motifs, or hunting and game scenes, birds, dogs, etc..
The seasoned woods are selected from the best quality and most exquisite walnuts. Their color and grain, their beautiful figuring blend wonderfully with the sculptural sweep of the steel parts and are a joy to the eye and the touch.
Each Lebeau-Courally therefore individually benefits from a long compendium of rare qualities. The best finished models require from 400 to 1000 hours of hand-work by craftsmen.
All main parts are hand-machined from single forgings, minutely fitted together with lampblack and jointed, ribbed and struck up by gunmakers trained right in our factory.
The finished gun or rifle is therefore unique, perfectly built to the individual customer's specifications. Forever it bears the elite characteristics that craftsmen have painstakingly created from rought steel and heart of walnut. It is small wonder that our sporting arms are so sought-after by the most discriminate and prestigious clientele.
