Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

Unfortunately by the time I get it back from ident I will probably have ATF approval and then shipping it around becomes a chore. Not to mention I am happy with the finish it already has and wouldn't want to shell out even more cash to get it refinished when I am trying to put cash towards the silen...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

Voip, have you considered seeing if the original place can redo it? If they still have the setup on the computer they can try running it through again. It might be the type of laser they have and it might not be strong enough but running multiple passes over it may work. It may take 10 passes, may ...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

Okay so I emailed Ident and Orion about this and surprisingly Ident replied at this late hour. They said that maker's mark can be engraved multiple times on weapons and they do this all the time on imported weapons from Glock, etc that don't meet ATF requirements. In any event after a pleasant phone...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

That's sort of funny. You can afford to "have good lawyers" but you're sick about about a $230 lower? That lower wouldn't buy an hour of a good lawyer's time. I don't see what is funny about it. I have access to attorneys on retainer with my company as well as the guy who did my trust (see, I was s...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

Ident indicated that they could do a second engraving and also said they could engrave over the original but did not recommend going this route as the results usually weren't great. Ident didn't indicate any problem with this but also admits they aren't NFA experts. At this point I am done dealing w...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

It occurs to me that another quicker and basically free option might be to simply get a fine metal dremel tip and go over it myself as basically I have a template from the laser engraving.

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

Maybe it's just the perspective of the photo, but to me the letters look bigger than they need to be? To each their own, but I prefer 1/16". Can't be read unless you hold it up to your face, and the wife isn't going to put reading glasses on to tell if you made another SBR.... Hopefully you don't h...

Re: laser engraving touch up gone wrong

I think it is probably fine too but after some of the comments want to see what people had to say. Wouldn't want to get thrown in prison over .0015 vs .003 :shock:
