Additional Engraving


Building a short barreled rifle is a great way to enter the highly popular market of NFA (National Firearms Act) firearms.  It allows you to save some money and in some cases get a more custom firearm in the end that is exactly what you want.  A popular process is to start off with a pistol, such as an AR pistol, and make it into a short barreled rifle.  You will be able to keep and use your pistol in the current configuration while you await your tax stamp.  Part of the requirement of making a firearm on an ATF Form 1, Application to Make and Register a Firearm, you will need to mark the firearm with the manufacturer information, which in this case is you or your trust if applicable.  As a side note, when setting up your trust, keep this in mind, as a lot of attorney's will not and will name your trust a very long name (John William Smith and Samuel Charles Smith Revocable Firearms Trust...) and that will need to be engraved on EVERY NFA gun you make. 

NFA Engraving Requirements

Your firearm will need to be engraved with your name or your trust name, and your city and state.  The form 1 will allow you to use the current model and serial number, but your information must be on it before you assemble it to be legal.  The current engraving physical requirements are not specified, so we generally engrave to the same requirement that are required for the serial number which is no smaller than 1/16", and a depth of .003".  The marking must be done on the frame of the firearm and we have the capability to mark steel, alloy, aluminum, polymer, titanium, and most other frame materials.  Since we use a laser engraving machine, we do not generally have to clamp firearms down which can leave scuffs or marks, and with most finishes leaves a cleaner engraving that can be paint filled for a more "factory" looking finished engraving.  Our process is also better for anodizing as it will not chip like a diamond drag engraver. 


We are a full service custom shop with many capabilities.  We are able to engrave logos, images, designs, and other text on firearms while we have them.  We also offer competitive cerakoting & anodizing  services that can be done before or after engraving depending on how you want the final product to look.  A common option is to color fill the engraving to make it blend in with the factory finish.  Please read about our graphic requirements here.


We ask that you strip the firearm as much as possible to help save on shipping costs and disassembly/reassembly time.  Depending on what we are engraving and where you want it done, make sure that all parts blocking the area you want engraved are removed.  For AR's please remove the takedown and pivot pin if possible.  If you have very specific requests please mark them with masking tape on the receiver and notate in a letter or the order notes.  We can use different fonts if they are available, please specify in advance if you want a specific font.  Additional charges may apply for firearms that require additional disassembly or are larger than standard and require additional shipping charges.  We are an FFL dealer so we can accept firearm shipments, and in most cases all firearms you ship to us can be shipped directly back to you after engraving.
