I should have my trust tomorrow. I've got a lower or two that I am gonna sbr. I have seen a couple pics of cool engravings with trust names on them. I need some inspiration for mine, show me what you got! Thanks guys

I got tired of thinking about getting it done, so I just finished it off with a dremel.
You probably don't want to see it

I didn't go with the flashy stuff. Just the legal info.

Really not too bad. Hell of a lot better than I could do with a dremel.

Seriously impressive. I'd need to practice on about a half dozen lowers before doing one like that myself and it being half as good...

Thanks guys.
I'm just glad to have it over with. It'll always be a reminder of how impatient and spiteful I am about the whole NFA process.

Colt was the Mfr of the title 1 gun, not the title 2 (NFA SBR) gun.

When YOU file a Form 1 (Application to Make and Register a Firearm) then YOU are the maker of the SBR and YOUR trust name, city & state needs to be on there as well. You do not need to add Caliber or Serial Number as you are using the existing ones.

Thank you sir. I was confused cause I only put my Trust info as "applicant". I thought since all the mfg info and caliber was already listed, I could just use those info without engraving my own trust info since it asked for "original mfg info". Thanks! I guess I have to send my rifle lower off!

Actually that looks pretty cool. I like the "messy" or "sloppy" look.

It gives the lower some character!

Individual, no trust here. These were done on my friend's CNC milling machine.





And this one was lasered by a manufacturer in CT:



I sent in another Form 1 for an SBR on an AMD-65, so my friend is engraving it for me this week. I'm thinking about engraving it on the bottom of the receiver, right in front of the magwell. We'll see how well it clamps in the vise on the mill.

Greg: That came out far better than I would have expected when you said you Dremelled it. I'll still stick to CNC equipment, but you have one steady hand!

Yup. SBR, AOW (as long as it's not a "covert weapon") and MGs are legal. SBSs are legal, too, but only if they came from the ORIGINAL manufacturer that way. Otherwise, they are considered "Sawed-Off Shotguns" and are illegal. I'd love to Form 1 one of my 1897 Winchesters that someone else already chopped to 18-1/2" down to the end of the mag tube, but not until the move to NH. So, I had to settle for my factory 14" Mossy 590.

Oh, and my 11-1/2" 5.56 AR SBR is all Colt, too!

No supressors, though. Again, I have to wait for the NH move to supress my 10-1/2" AR45.

You should definitely give them call if you need your lower engraved, Bill Gray was very professional, he had my lower engraved and back in my hands stupid fast! You can find him in the Industry Forum.

I'll accept the blame.
I consider it like putting my name on one of my tools, I'm silly that way I guess.
