I have stippled ribs several times with my Lindsay Air Graver and I just stippled a double rifle However, having one of us engravers to do this on an low value gun is not cost effective for you. Advice you are receiving on leaving it smooth is good advise and cost effective.

I'm actually not terrible at stippling, yeah, it would take a while, don't think I could do more than a couple inches at a time. I'm really wondering how everyone felt about the look.

I've just ordered two. I have a SBT gun in that had a file cut rib that was sanded down during an earlier refinish. I'll practice quite a bit before cutting the rib. I found six inch Swiss checkering files for $30-$40 on the internet.

I prefer wood to plastic, leather to nylon, waxed cotton to Gore-Tex, and split bamboo to graphite.

Gunter Pfrommer showed me how he does the "file cut" rib matting.

A small piece of a mill file can be silver brazed to graver shank. The bit is sharpened. The graver is then chased at an angle. Very simple process.

I didn't know E C Lyons Co was still around. I've got some of their gravers that I obtained 45+ years ago and I think they were old at that time!.

If I can dig it out, I'll see if I can post a pic of an oct rifle bbl that I florentine finished the top flat with a liner graver.

Here's another place for gravers, Gesswein brand.
Might be a little less expensive. Excellent tools. Lot's to choose from..

I didn't mean to imply Gunter did that rib in the picture. But its the only one I have that has that technique...and it's a bad example.
