Okay, here's the deal... this is a buddies company, who asked me to post this for CalGunners.

LaserMyGun is a Laser Engraving and anodizing service that has served the paintball industry for many years. They have specialized in customizing paintball markers by anodizing and laser engraving.

They have anodized AR lowers and uppers in the past.

They are located in Anaheim, CA (Counter Strike Paintball).

If your going to have a part engraved represents the registered gun, you have to come in person and wait while the work is being done... LaserMygun is not an FFL.

Cost..
$50.00 for Images
$30.00 for Fonts
Graphic modification or vector conversion is extra.

Here is a few samples.

does your buddy have a FFL? if not, i don't think drop offs or shipping are ok but while you waits should be fine.

good looking work!

Thats the first thing that came to mind when it was a paintball store. Since he doesnt have an FFL and we cant drop off. Does that mean our firearms get frontloaded when we walk in for work?
Does he plan on getting an FFL for gunsmith work? Would be cool to get a whole AR done up like the paintball guns on his site :43:

Correct me if I'm wrong guys but if the customer doesnt pick up the firearm that day and decides to come back another, couldnt the engraver get in trouble with ATF/DOJ? so the guy doing this probably shouldnt do same day pick up but rather make the customer wait since he doesnt actually have a log book correct?

Those lowers look great. The pictures of the paintball guns on the site look amazing. I might have to take some lowers with me the next time my family drags me to the magic kingdom.

Just do uppers and pistol slides, no problems!

How long does a typical job take? I might go there today!

Cool stuff.

Now I just need to come up with a design.

Nice work BTW! Your gallery is sweet.

I have always wanted to get an engraving but never wanted to deal with shipping it out to someone. I like the fact that he is local. Big Plus!

ask for Eric and actual engraving time is like 5 min. All the time is spent in design (which you would want done before stopping by).

How many microns is the engraving?

I think it's like .05. Very little.

What extension should the file format be in? I have a image of the text i want on it and i have it in vector format (pdf, svg, & eps). Also, the hours the guy that does the engraving would be nice, since i stopped by today to find he was not working.

Dont have any experience with Laser Engraving or how it works so i gotta question that may seem dumb, if i wanted to have the slide on my glock engraved with a quote, would i have to have it re-finished (tenifered again by glock) or would it be good to go still??

Notorious
05-25-2010, 12:28 AM
The Tenifer is not just on the surface, from what I was told. If this engraving only takes off 0.05 microns, it wouldn't even get to anywhere near taking off Tenifer.

Depends on the image. The best is a vector file but we have used jpeg. Just depends on what the image is of.

Laser engraving removes a very small amount of the anodizing on an aluminum surface. Enough to exposed the aluminum surface (thus exposing the whiteish surface).

LaserMygun has done ton's of aluminum bodies but you would need to contact
Dan@lasermygun.com to discuss other types of metals. You would need to tell him the type of metal your body has and he will give you a better idea.

If your sending an AR upper, keep in mind the barrel has to be removed to fit in the engraving machine. AR lowers and smaller parts would be no problem.

Seriously cool! I'm digging those designs. I know if I got one of my pieces done with the Louis Vuitton, my gal would steal it! :D

Dan - get your Gunsmithing FFL, so we can send you our stuff! Sending out an 80% before milling is okay but then anodizing an engraving will cover up the artwork.

Cannot be sent in, you will have to be there. No FFL therefore work must be done while owner is around.

Very cool!
I'm going to work on getting the 2A (or maybe the entire BoR if it'll fit) on my 80%

As mentioned above... is there engraving equipment available that will do the deeper markings to meet BATFE specs for the manufacturer/location/serial number? Those markings need to be about the same depth as the "FIRE/SAFE" markings on the DTOM pictured lower.

stan

+1 for finding out about increased depth capabilities

I figured I'd use my HF punch/stamp set.

No way Jose.

The anodized surface on the ZMEFLY 80% lower is WAY too hard. A solid whack with an 8lb hammer on a 1/8" stamp barely left a mark!

Other option is to freehand it with a Dremel... but I really don't want to go that way.

Paperweight's a paperweight, but I would recommend holding off on anodizing until the 80% is machined. It's not just for appearance, it also hardens the surface, which prevents wear where the hammer and trigger pins ride.

Jeff is a busy guy, has a full time job and is just helping out his friend, he's taking care of some family emergency right now so give him time. Very responsible and thoughtful guy, I can vouch for him. Got my lower done and just sent in my second one.

I can also say the the guys down in OC are top notch. I don't know the OP outside of the forum, but I've talked to the guys at LMG and they have been very patient with my questions. Very informative and I can't wait to get my lower down to them in the next few weeks.

They did my gun and my friend's gun within 10 minutes. I sent the file ahead of time and it was formatted when I got there and he aligned the laser engraver and there it went.

I wouldn't really say it's worth it to spend $50 to engrave a $7.95 ejection cover though.

Any word on if he can (yet) handle engraving to BATFE standards for model, serial number, manufacturer's name?

A cool lasered "rollmark" would be nice, but I'd just like to get some kind of identifiers on my 80%.

This post is for two different firearms right? I mean, home built guns do not NEED a serial ever- let alone to BATFE's standards.

Now if your looking to have your SBS/SBR engraved I'd recommend Orion. Unfortunately they are out of state, but fortunately they have their FFL and an impeccable reputation.

I know it's not legally required, but I'd like to get it done all the same, in case I ever do decide to sell it.

Would also tend to make it a little easier to deal with the cops if my wife ends up having to use it in a home defense situation.
Kinda hard to complete an LEGR with no identifying marks on the gun.

Same thing.

It is legal to build any firearm for personal use, so long as that firearm complies with state and federal law.
One thing that gets us in California is the roster. It is illegal to manufacture an "unsafe handgun", so a pistol build must first become functional in a roster-exempt form. This would be "dimensionally compliant single shot"... Minimum barrel length 6", minimum OAL 10.5", and with a zero-round magazine locked into the magwell via screws or something similar to a bullet button.

Once the pistol is completed, it may then be modified to a non-exempt form.... remove the single shot sled, install a shorter barrel, etc....

On the topic of markings, the BATFE required markings are only needed if the gun is ever sold (and this would apply to long guns as well as pistol builds). Manufacturer's name, city, model, serial number, and caliber.
