Default Engrave your 80%er

A lot of people have been bringing completed 80% Lowers and fully assembled AK's in the shop to have their info engraved so they can register them as AW next year. As of January 1, all firearms that enter the shop must meet new AW's guidelines. I do not have a special weapons permit. On January 1 all firearms that enter the building must be featureless or striped. Do not wait to the last minute.




Engraving rates are on website.

Yes, polymer receivers can be engraved. But if you
are looking to engrave all the new California DOJ
required markings. ATF requires the serial number
to be engraved on a piece of metal embedded in the
polymer. I do not know if the new CA. DOJ law will
use the ATF specs regarding polymer receivers, or if
they will require all the info be on a metal plate embedded.
I have been getting a lot of traffic about serializing polymer
receivers. I am working to get a setup to cut and embed a
strip of metal in polymer just big enough to meet the minimum
ATF specs of size and depth. May have it ready by the first of the year.

Thanks for the info. I am also interested in engraving Polymer 80 handgun frames.

I am aware that ATF requires licensed manufacturers to engrave serial in metal, but AFAIK that requirement does not extend to home builders who just want to mark their firearm for tracking purposes (as opposed to resale). And the new CA law does not say anything about the medium that the markings should be made in to.

But I think it is a great idea that you are experimenting with embedding metal strips. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

The piece of metal is a 3.7 ounce stainless plate embedded so that removal would render firearm unusable. Handgun polymer frame owners sol

As far as cutting out a square on polymer receivers to embed a strip of SS. If I go too fast or too hot, the machine will just melt the polymer. I have to go slow and light in order no to melt the plastic. I can do it but it will take almost 2 hrs. to cut out a square big enough for the stainless plate. I am too busy to tie up the machine for that amount of time. Your best bet is to get a Dermal, bring me a SS plate and I will engrave it with you info. Carve out a the square and use epoxy to embed to SS plate.
