I have no financial interest in sharing this info. I had a very pleasant experience at Hot Spot.
Hot Spot Engraving in Bensenville will do while you wait engraving if you schedule an appointment beforehand.
It takes about 20-ish minutes to do an NFA SBR engraving (name and town) anywhere on an AR lower.
He does all types of engraving (not just firearms), and the price is reasonable. Single firearm engraving is $60. Multiple items bring the per item rate down.
Designs and logos bring the cost higher and will be priced depending on size and other factors.
The owner/engraver/operator is C.J. A firearms owner, a very nice guy, and a good conversationalist with an interesting background as a business owner at a young age.
There is a Portillo's about a mile away if you want to grab lunch instead of waiting in the shop. I chose to stay and watch the process. I got to see the laser in action.
CJ likes to get the engraving perfect and you are better off staying and giving your approval to any aspect of the laser engraving: Font size, style, depth, and location.
Visit his Facebook page to see what the engraving will look like. The laser engraving will have a white outline.
If you choose to paint or black out the engraving go with a deeper engraving depth!!
If you are nervous about leaving your firearms overnight at a shop, and don't want to ship out of state, make some time and schedule a visit.
