i was brainstorming ideas to engrave into my dust cover.

i think a calguns logo would be awesome!

is that okay without any copyright issues? if not maybe this is a good way for calguns to round up some quick funds.


let me know what you guys think.

Brilliant idea! As long as a portion of the proceeds go to CGF I'm all for it!

I would be in for one. would look great with my new calguns lower. It would be cool if it had the logo showing when it was closed and said CAL GUNS when fliped open

Get calguns on one side, and a flag facing the RIGHT way on the other half, and you can definitely color me interested. Good idea.

I've been wanting to build an AR lately, a CG dust cover might convince me. Gotta give thanks to the knowledge I've gained here.

Better make sure your rig is "legally" configured.

Last thing we want is an illegal AW with the Calguns stamp on it.....bad PR.....

Tagged. I'd get one for my AR especially if part of my $ goes to CGF. I hope this happens!

Any updates as of yet? I'm interested, but this thing will get shut down in a hurry without Kes' seal of approval.

I'm interested. I also want one that says "Shh!" when closed and "SHTF" when open.

I like that, I picture it with "SHHHHH...." on the outside. Then on the inside it would say, "..IT HIT THE FAN!"

Probably a little too wordy my way though. Ejection port covers aren't quite that big.:(

No updates sorry. I want to see these things readily avalible for all to purchase.

Hopefully we can get an answer!

I got some info from hanford engraving and sent a pm over to kestryll. But it looks like they will be around 15.00 shipped to your door and some money from everyone sold will go to CalGuns. If this don't happen I'm going to have a custom one made for sure. I spoke to them about having the Calgun bear & star logo on the out side and Cal Guns when open but this is not set in stone.

just ordered all my parts for a 22lr ar pistol build and this would be a nice addition to it. count me in for one.

Cool. I'd probably be down if it wasn't too "in your face" and some funds went toward CGF. Great idea. -Ben

You can count me in for one. This would be a good match for my Calguns lower.

i made a jig for my laser machine and ran a test on an extra dust cover. backwards American flag on right side and CA flag on left... and it came out just as i wanted it to. i only used 600dpi, but can also do 1200dpi for a cleaner picture.

attached is the worst picture of all time, but i can take a better photo when i get home. either way, you get the idea.

if people would be willing to ship me their dust covers, i could engrave whatever they want (for a nominal fee) and i can ship it right back, but i obviously haven't worked out any details. could even engrave the calguns logo (with permission, i'd assume) and donate a percentage to CGF from logo engravings (kind of like a royalty system).

will keep my eye on this thread. for more interest/developments.

I'd buy that in a second if there was nothing on the outside. Great work! -Ben

didn't engrave the outside, but it can be done. i'd have to make a new jig for it though cause there is that ball bearing lock thingymajigger that doesn't make for a flat surface for engraving.
