    I am looking for someone in the Louisville area that can engrave a name and serial number on a gun (legally).

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Armorhyde is not the only one.

    Engraving a serial number requires approval from the ATF if you are moving it.

    I'm thinking that if you built something out of an 80% lower or frame that you just put an unique identifier on it and you're good. And that if you built a gun from a 100% lower/frame and it already isn't listed on several forms, including 4473, then you might be in the wrong.

    If he is creating an NFA item, with a stamp, it is my understanding that it must be marked with name and serial number. I have no NFA items, so I am not that versed in the protocol, but that would be why I suspect he is looking for an engraver.

    Frame stamp was fubared during stamping and pistol pulled from production. I need a variance letter from BATF to restamp in new location. And name, city and state to assemble. I have a matching slide w/serial# inside slide.

    It is a FEG HP sold to ChasDaly with no external markings other than serial #.
    Hope to place serial# on front of grip. Name etc on underside of frame just forward of trigger guard. Thus no markings visible on profile.
