I'm in the process of completeing a 80% build, I'm looking for a stamp that says "safe" and " fire " as the new 80% lowers dont come with any markings on them. Does anyone know where I can find them? Thanks JP

Don't know if such a thing is available.
But you can get a set of alphabet stamps from a decent tool catalog or even Harbor Freight.

Never seen such stamps, I engraved mine on a Haas CNC, I'm sure you can find a local machine shop to do this for you for a small fee. If you don't want to go that route then perhaps just stamp F and S with a set of letter stamps.

If you get a set of letter stamps, the standard trick to lining them up is to put a piece of masking tape on the part to establish the base line for the lettering, then you just hold the stamp in position on that line and eyeball the spacing between letters, one letter at a time.

Why not just drill 2 dots and paint one red, one white?

You could even do it like most pistols, red under the selector that displays when safe

orion arms and ident markings can both apply what ever markings you desire including custom wording or logos or a combination of both. some of their work can be found on retroblackrifle.com along with a link to them.

I like the idea of drilling two indentations and filling them in with paint.

The wall is only a 1/10" thick. I didn't want to drill in to it.
I used a stamp set from Harbor freight. Stamped an S & F before I
hallowed out the fire control pocket.
On a pre-anodized lower I punched out a dot from red and white electrical tape.
They have held up so far and are easily replaced when needed.

I believe red displayed means ready to fire or safety is OFF...it is like that on my Browning anyway.
