Engraving for a SBR form 1?

Bye Engraving, they will do NFA engraving while you wait. Call ahead for an appointment though.

Looking at doing the same thing. On the form 1 do you need to do that through an ffl or just fill it out and send it?
I just efiled my first one. With help from @wired it went pretty smooth. The site was a bit finicky depending on the browser you use (google chrome fixed all my issues). Got my cover letter and form in the email. I hope the library is open cause I don’t have a printer here at home. I just need to print my cover letter and send it with my print cards. And send the Cleo form to Washington County. Then play the waiting game.

Are you really required to lazer engrave youre sbr from what Ive read its only if you ever plan to sell
That is some idiotic drivel that Nick Leghorn came up with a few years ago stating that he "talked to some ATF agent on the phone" who told him they didnt need to be engraved. What Leghorn forgot to do is look at the Form 1 instructions and the Federal code that clearly state that form 1 SBR's have to be engraved with the makers information in addition to the original manufacturers information. What the Agent was probably talking about , if there ever was an agent, was title 1 firearms and he got that wrong too. That little bit of dumb@ss has been floating around for a few years now.

27 CFR 479.102 is the ATF regulation that requires engraving NFA items. (For this regulation the word “firearm” includes silencers and other NFA items).

Yes it is required to add the maker and city and state that it was made in.

Cite the source. That’s an incorrect statement.

When you make ANY NFA item you ARE required to engrave the NFA information on it.

Second this.

I have an AK Draco pistol that I SBR’d. It has the original Romanian manufacturer & S/N info on it, then in another location (per NFA instructions) I have my Trust name with City & State engraved BECAUSE my trust was the “maker” of the NFA item.

Here's a few references: ATF and Cornell Law white paper. They state the minimum depth and size. I saw a discussion about depth at one point and they were saying that low power lasers may not be adequate. I don't recall the specifics but throwing it out there in case someone else can help out with verified information.

ETA, I believe the discussion I heard was about lasers or engraving only going through the coating and not into the metal of the part. Just a heads up so you can tell the engraver what you really need.
