CODY — Master engraver Bill Johns, whose craftsmanship has added intricate details to many a firearm, will demonstrate his craft from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at the entrance to the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

His appearance is part of the Center's "In-Residence" summer program in which artists, craftsmen, scientists and historians demonstrate their areas of expertise throughout the galleries of the BBHC.

An elderly German gunsmith taught Johns the art of engraving, which he has now been doing for over 40 years.

He currently works at his shop in Cody, where he not only engraves firearms, but knives, jewelry, belt buckles, saddle trim and more.
