Default Laser Engraving in SoCal

Can anyone recommend a company providing laser engraving for AR lowers in SoCal? I've contacted OC Custom Coating and they have a 3 week wait. I just sent an email to P&L. Any others?

P&L !
Go get it done...he is quick, detailed, does the work while you watch.
Price was very reasonable.

The laser engraving is sharp and deep enough for legal marking requirements.

Ztech in Ontario did my friend's lower today while he waited for $60. (213) 500-6943. I believe he had to send an email for an appointment, which he got for the same day. The email is sales@ztechlasers.com. You can look at their work on instagram under ztechlasers.

I just used OC ENGRAVING in Santa Ana (Orange County, SoCal). Great prices and service. You will need to wait with firearm related engravings (no ffl). Laser used, not sure what type, more than deep enough to satisfy regulations even after cerakote.

I called yesterday and had my appointment this morning. Very happy.

714-546-8663 3400 W. Warner Ave. Unit J-1 Santa Ana, CA, 92704. They are on east side of building beside/behind Shoreline Ambulance.

Seemed to understand pressing nature of need to have engraving done. My local FFL/Smith had my stuff for a week and had not yet slated engraving time.

++++ on P+L (his user name on here) he's is best. In El Monte an 07 manufacturer. Does it while you wait. Only charges $20 for ATF required info (price may be off I haven't done any lately)

Another recommendation for P&L. He did several for my buddy and I a few weeks back

He has a thread in the Commercial Services sub-forum:

Anyone else in or near lb? The one previously mentioned is kind of pricey for just the legal etch (yes, I know I'm being cheap). I'm hoping not to have to drive to el monte.
