I would guess that Brownells could do it, but IDK for sure.

I have an old engraver that I could use. Take about 5 minutes. Cheap rates. No quality guarantee implied or expressed.

Have you asked Septic? He would know, given his line of work.

Septic's shop

I have sent all of mine off to THSF. Excellent prices, super-fast turn around. They even called me to make sure the weird size/loc. I wanted was right (it wasn't). Recommend highly.

That's great and all but it's kind of useless if you don't know what "THSF" means.

I would not use septic, mine that he did are very screwing looking. He's just a middle man anyway.

I have never had anything engraved personally for myself but will have some things ready by the next election.
I have personally seen Strongarms Browning .30 belt-fed and Colt DOE 9mm AR and the engraving is a work of art that came from Septic’s engraver.

PSA...whoever you may decide to use for your engraving make sure they are familiar with the ATF’s requirements for font size and engraving depth when dealing with serial #’s.

Yes, you are wrong. I only mentioned this one other time here, I'm not making a huge deal out of it, so it's hardly "beating a dead horse", bud. It took him 18 months to complete a couple SBRs, I really didn't care to wait any longer even if he did try to reach out. The engraving was so poor it should have been fixed before it left the shop that he sent it to. Thanks

he's right. it didn't go well. atf, as usual, lost forms, many of which i resubmitted several times. hell, the last round of them during that time took 11 months for the form 2 alone. and since i can't form 3 to another dealer what atf hasn't recognized on a form 2 manufacturing report, people were pissed. i don't blame cavscouty a bit for being miffed. i assure you i wasn't digging it either. i think i even posted pics of some of the forms showing only the dates of course where it was nearly a year for a stupid form 2... very uncool. eforms has actually helped, when it isn't down and thankfully it hasn't crashed now that it is on the 3rd gen. gen 1 and 2 were awful...

then, with a bunch of people that were miffed over the late date, i hurried through things when the forms finally came through, which is the cardinal sin of late projects. in my rush i missed what was obvious ...because his engraving was too close to the edge of the weapon and didn't look good. i didn't check it thoroughly, and shipped it 15 miles because jack didn't want to pick it up. i wish like hell that hadn't happened, but i have to own it. ultimately it was my responsibility. i've apologized plenty, and offered lots of times to make it right, but sometimes people don't want that. and that's ok, as it is their choice, not mine. i use two different services now. one is a lazer engraver the other is a cnc mill engraver. depending on the work you want done and the metallurgy, either can be a great option.

again, apologies jack. i'm sorry that happened. the engraving is on me, totally.

the wait? all atf... in fact, if i go back, i think i resubmitted your form 2 or 3x. i hustled that project as hard as any i ever have calling atf on the phone, emailing them, faxing them, and sending you copies. that stuff is hard on everyone.

Apparently Phipps diamond shop in Marion does NFA engraving. I’ll be calling them later today to follow up on a conversation about it last week.

I’ll keep you guys posted about how it goes.

Been digging around, thinking I am going to ship to Tar Heel State Firearms. Rave reviews from everyone I talk to.

Still in for info on Phillips.

I’m in Iowa City, Marion is pretty close though. Spoke with the guy on the phone, sounds like they use a laser engraving setup. Will be visiting them soon.

I was out in Cedar Rapids last weekend to visit my Grandma. Very sad to find out the Maid Rite off 7th shut down.

Many meals had there with my grandpa (RIP), and after he got moved into a home, we would always stop there and pick Maid Rite up on our way to visit.
