It is with great sorrow that we announce, DJ passed away May 19, 2012.
C&D Petronis, Inc. is pleased to announce our association with one of the finest and experienced of Master Firearms Engravers, Domingos Joaquim. DJ, as he is known among friends, has worked as an Artist and performed his Art of Engraving for major firearms companies, Hollywood celebrities, musical artists and individual customers for over forty years. He is said to have been the best in his field when at Smith & Wesson Firearms Company between 1978 and 1982.
DJ now will be accepting a limited amount of new clients thru our Hudson River Trading Company storefront and this NEACA website. All work is performed by his own hand whether it be simple scroll engraving, elaborate art and design work, master execution of animal or portrait art, gold or silver inlays or raised gold designs and figures. DJ will also be at some of our NEACA Arms Fairs showing demonstrations of his art and possibly executing simple work on site. Recently, two of his artful Model 60's were highlighted in the Smith & Wesson Collectors Journal.
For information about having any of his engraving or inlaying art performed on your firearms, knives or for similar work please contact us for a thorough consultation and estimate. David Petronis, can be reached at 518-664-9743.
