    Guys I read a few posts on here that recommended Bye engraving in PDX for NFA engraving. Anyone have first hand experience with them. Can anyone that has had a nfa engraving done by them post a pic, I would just like to see the quality of their work. Of course please cover up the individual name/tust name prior to posting pics :)

    I have used BYE Engraving. They are a great company and the guys who do the engraving are very nice and professional. I would highly recommend them. They will do the work while you watch / wait.

    I have a rather long name, so they knocked the font down a size. It's all still larger/deeper than the minimum requirement. They do quality work and are a great bunch of guys to talk to. The engraving is uniform, the paint I used to fill it in is what makes it look lumpy.

    They can usually fit in NFA engraving at a moments notice. Give them a call to verify they aren't working on a huge order. They weren't too busy when I had mine done, it took 20 minutes.

    I drive past them almost every day. I always wondered what they did at that location. Nice to know.

    I can't remember if it was $20 or $25 for the engraving.

    I paid either $20 or $25 for mine. He did it while I waited and invited me back to watch. I called to make an appt, but don't think it was needed. Quality work, highly recommended.

    i know this is a kind of a stupid question but do they ask you to show them your stamped Form1 before they agree to engrave? Better safe than sorry.

    They don't ask for the stamped form 1. I mean worst case, you get some anti-theft protection. Your name or the name of your trust and the city you live in is now engraved on your firearm.

    So if you move to another state do you have to get it re engraved? (Question specific to suppressors).

    No. It's the name and address of the maker or manufacturer at the time of making or manufacturing.

    Went in there a month ago to have an AR Lower engraved. Took me as a walk-in after calling first, stood there while they did it. Looks great, gonna color it in with some ' aluminum Jack's so it doesn't stand out so much. $25 out the door, no Form 1 required.
