RB Precision has just finished 3 new projects looking for opinions and suggestions, I will try to post the other two projects later in the week, would be interested in your views on the new laser marking of our uppers. We can also do custom lower marking but if there is not a market I don't want to waste the time, we have also tossed around the idea of serializing your uppers with the same #'s as the lowers (still checking into all the legalities) if my damn manufacturers license will ever get here we will be producing a complete rifle soon.
Thanks in advance (now where did I put those flame proof gloves?)

looks good... any plans for an upper without the forward assist? and maybe a southpaw version?

Ok I'll flame you! I say flame on bro! That's looks super!

I currently build on the DPMS southpaws, have done 8-10 and they run well, I can engrave any receiver out there I have done the low pros. I am currently working on a side charger, the ASA is a nice unit (friend has one I like the block at the rear charge handle area, very clean) I have some upgrades in mind...so many projects so little time!

Thanks Spooge, PS I like the suppressor tag line! I would be laughing harder if it were not for Illinois pathetic gun/suppresor restriction. Have a friend at LRM teasing me with his awsome line of products. Robert

Robert, Looks good. Are you able to do CNC rotary engraving on lowers? Or is all your engraving laser?
Link Posted: 10/8/2003 5:23:17 PM EDT
I'm curious, do you engrave after stripping the finish on a customer's upper, or just over existing finish? Would it have to be refinished afterwards? Numbered rails used to impress me, but my top rails are all covered up with BUIS's, Arms mounts, optics, etc. so you'd never see the numbers. I never paid attention to them anyway, I mount stuff where it works for me. I might go for a custom message as opposed to a serial number (I.E. Built for..., Presented to...In Memoriam of...)

Robert, Get yourself a HAAS 4 axis mill with a HRT210B rotary and go to town on free float tubes. I would like to see one with "flames" engraved. The possibility's are endless. BTW looks great! Samuel Edit to ad a link for ya www.haascnc.com

All laser at this time. Am investigating cnc with small ball engraving bit, Hass machine has the sofware to do it, would probably try it in the white, will post experiments. Robert

We engrave into the hard anodize, I see your point on covering the numbers. Would like to do a set for a club or shooting team. Thanks for the input! Robert

"Suit" And I'm glad you like my side-cocker. Might even get around to barreling it someday. Never know, I might have to have it laser engraved first. :) BTW: Lee isn't teasing you...he just can't understand anyone voluntarily living in a state that doesn't allow select fire, suppressors, etc...

I only ask two things of you Sluggo, if I die first run like hell to my house and pay a fair price for my toys, Krista thinks they are all worth $100-200 apiece. Second, you go first have the decency to put me in your will for the sidecocker, no wait, the JP shorty, no wait the Knights outfitted 20" no wait the benelli...better yet just write it up as "the left side of my safe" [:)]

Does PBP sell stripped lowers?? If so, which mfgr?
Link Posted: 10/10/2003 3:08:21 PM EDT
I wouldn't deal with ASA. It's hard to give away anything associated with ASA around here. Their reputation is that bad!

Wanna try that again?

Just one suggestion regarding the engraving and the anodizing/dyeing: Engrave before anodizing. Anodize, and then before the dyeing stage, Fill the engraving with the sealant silicone used in electronics assembly processing which is used to keep solder out of connector during wave soldering processes, or something else that seals and can be removed later. After dyeing, remove the sealant from the engraving and you now have a full anodize coat on everything but it's not dyed in the engraving. Run a test on a scrap first to see how well it works. CJ

Sorry.... I hate the new photoserver we have here.

Robert, If I put you in my will, it'll have to be for something challenging to you, like my NEF 12-gauge. You'ld have to work hard to create some kind of gadget to fit it...maybe a quad rail forearm or AR stock adaptor. Put the fear of god into liberals with a black stocked, quad railed, pistol gripped, single shot assault shotgun. Later. Sluggo

This is interesting, I have done work with the sealant (conformal coat) for electronics, I am working on a rail with a battery pack, the rail has contact strips to power whatever slides on the rail.....I will have to ponder your idea, I actually think it might work....... Robert

Robert, just to clarify, your upper is not gay. Just making fun of my reply, I love a good laugh at myself!

What he said... Big Gay Al in no way endorses the aformentioned upper. [;)]

After finishing, the "addresses" on the aluminum RIS/RAS parts are lasered in. This process only changes the color of the die that is making the anodize black in color, or whatever. The hardcoat anodize plating remains and protection remains.
