I started a post several weeks ago looking for help on getting an Eagle Globe and Anchor engraved on an AR15 magwell. I was striking out until someone suggested using Ident Marking Services. I sent them an email explaining what I was looking for and they got on it right away. We sent several drafts back and forth until we got the image exactly they way I want it. For any of you who are looking for a great place to have truly custom engraving done that comes out exactly the way you want it then I suggest you send Gordon or Jason an email at Ident Marking Services. Below is a link to the image of my reciever which I had the EGA engraved on. I also recommend checking out the rest of their sample work. This is the only engraving I've had done by them but from the looks of their sample work they can do just about anything. These guys are awesome! Let me know what you think of the engraving.

Very nice! That is some amazing detail for an engraving.

Maybe I'll see what they can do for Hap Arnold Wings, you never see those on an AR (and don't bother telling me why either ). How much did it cost you?

120$, which may seem a little spendy at first, but for something that you cant undo and want to look great I found it to be an extremely fair price. Especially after I saw how well it came out.

looks great I want to do the same with my pistol.

Did you have to ship through an FFL or just go direct?
Link Posted: 6/9/2009 3:34:36 PM EST
Wow, that's VERY Nice!

That is fucking awesome!

Wow, great work. I agree with Kteaton, I'd get Hap Arnold wings engraved on mine too!
Link Posted: 6/9/2009 3:42:44 PM EST
Looks awesome! I think it was well worth the $.

Not me. I'd get the eagle with lightning bolts that goes on top of so many specialty badges. Or the old Aircraft and Munitions Maintenance badge (Master, of course!).

All I did was get the mailing address from Gordon in an email, went down to the post office with my nearly stripped lower (still had my buffer tube, trigger guard and trigger assembly on my lower), and told the post man I needed a box that would fit this so I could mail it to their shop. It got there 2 days later but it wasnt engraved for another week just because we were still emailing eachother back and forth on changes to the image draft. No FFL required.

Glad you guys like the work- we thought it came out nice. To aviod any confusion we are an 07/02 FFL
Thanks for the post and the work, Frank.

Haha whoops, sorry about that guys. I guess I meant there was no extra hassle or paperwork as far as sending the lower through the mail. I should have explained my answer a little better. Anyways it was almost too easy, extremely professional, and as for the quality i'll just let the picture do the talking for me.

That is amazing detail. Very nice.

Good to go! Absolutely awesome detail. Gonna have to get mine done with 0351 beneath the EGA. Semper Fidelis !
Link Posted: 6/9/2009 8:59:38 PM EST
Very nice!

Link Posted: 6/10/2009 12:06:43 AM EST
Alot of people get a laser "engraving" on the magwell, but it just doesn't reach that level of detail.
That is awesome. I'm off to google thier website to look at other samples.
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 12:27:15 AM EST
Just saw on thier site that they do mechanical and laser engraving. It appears yours is a mechanical engraving, am I correct in assuming that?
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 2:07:02 AM EST
Very nice work, I might have to get something done by them as well.

Semper Fi Marine, that truely looks GREAT! Well worth the money paid!

Cute. I didn't go "chairborne" until they decided that Senior NCOs should be "managers" instead of "leaders," let alone "technicians." Hated it. That maintenance badge was one of my more treasured "awards," which is why I'd have that engraved on an AR. (Aint' NO sittin' on a flightline! )

Which means you could engrave "maker" information on an SBR'd lower too, right?

Correct, that's one of the first things I saw on thier website
Link Posted: 6/10/2009 4:22:52 AM EST
That looks really good.
How is it refinished?

Oorah. I guess that's what I'll do along with SBR engravings.

It certainly doesn't look like the typical gun web site, but they engrave a lot more than just weapons.

No. That EGA was done with a YAG laser.
