Looking to SBR an AK. Any place in Iowa to do the NFA serializing?

I had Philips Diamond Shop in Marion engrave my krink and mp5. Came out good enough and the price was cheap. They use a fiber laser.

If you don't mind saying, what was the price? Just trying to gauge budget.

Cheap I got two done for around $40. Call them and ask.

Thanks. I think there's a guy up by me that does it, but I haven't called him yet. I'd rather call closer to the date (after the stamp comes) so he's got less time to reconsider if he's on the fence about guns.

Awards N Time in New Hampton will do engraving, I need to talk to them myself on engraving for my 870. Just got confirmation that they'll engrave guns but haven't talked price yet. You have to go in through the jewelry store(next door to  to the west).

Thanks for the heads up. The jewelry store is closing, is that going to affect Awards N Time's business?

The way they told me, the guy running Awards is looking to sell the place to someone who can learn the engraving business. Don't know if they'll get a taker or not.

Interesting. The original guy I was mentioning is just south of New Hampton. If Awards falls through, let me know and I can get you the name. I haven't called yet to find out if he'll do guns though.

Will do, thanks. Hoping to have time to stop in and talk to them tomorrow. Probably heading to Decorah too so if I do everything I want to, I'm in for a good bit of windshield time.

ETA-there is an engraver in Cresco too, but same issue. Don't know if they'll do guns. I know they'll do grips but no idea on the gun itself.

Further ETA-Just got back from Awards N Time. $5 setup fee and 50 cents per letter. Total for mine will be $18. Thought it was more than reasonable.

Nope. Just a long last name.

Oh, heck! That's way reasonable! Guess I know where I'll be going. Thanks Shack!

I know that.  I forgot city and state need engraved also. My name alone has enough letters to hit that $18 mark before I add Des Moines, IA.

Creative Arms in Des Moines did mine. Left it with them for an hour. $30.
Link Posted: 3/9/2020 4:38:50 PM EDT
nice. laser engraved? turn out pretty good?
Link Posted: 3/15/2020 11:02:43 PM EDT
They laser engrave all their stuff. Mine was on a polymer receiver, turned out good. Small and not noticeable, blends in with other text.
