I'm an 07/02 out by Panora. I'm looking around for a shop to engrave three ar15 lower receivers with my information. Two SBRs and a machinegun.
Are there any recommendations that you guys have used? Closer to Panora the better. Thanks

Machine gun not legal in Iowa for the average citizen.

Try https://www.controlledchaosarms.com/firearms/
I've had work done by them in the past with good results.

I've tried them and Creative arms in Des Moines the last couple days but haven't heard back. I'm in no rush since technically theres no "it needs to be engraved by" timeframe. Just wanted to get them engraved before I demo them.

Reached Creative Arms to have them do it. Good prices, $25 per lower and they said it takes about 5 mins per lower.
I'll update with results if anyone is curious.

@Kalahnikid

That was pretty neat. Great guys.
They took me on a tour of their facilities and showed me their manufacturing process.
They have a great CNC shop making billet receivers, silencers and other parts.
They also make most of their own firearms parts including charging handles, gas blocks and an assortment of other parts.

Showed me their new integrally suppressed rifle line and their silencer development.

It was a very nice facility and they have their stuff squared away. Again, great guys, great prices and very knowledgeable.
I took a couple pictures of the laser engraving, but didnt want to take any pictures of their facilities.

AAR:

I went today and it was like hitting the easy button. Did fingerprints, filled out the F1, and did the engraving for $50 in about 40 minutes.

Highly recommend.
