I am in the process of filling out my Form1 to SBR one of my AK Pistols. I wanted to see if there are any gunsmiths or firearm specialists in the Joliet/Plainfield area who can do the engraving on my AK.

If anyone can recommend a trusted gunsmith or engraver, please reply.

Thanks

I have an AR lower that I would like to get engraved to the specifications as required to register it as an SBR.

As per the ATF Handbook:

"the serial
number must be to a minimum depth of .003 inch

and in a print size no smaller than 1/16 inch."



7.4.1.1 What is an acceptable serial number?

Alpha characters (letters), for example a name,

are not acceptable as a serial number. A proper

serial number may contain such characters or

letters, but it must have at le

ast one numeric character (number). ATF takes the view that

marking “legibly” means using exclusively Roman

letters (A, B, C, and so forth) and Arabic

numerals (1, 2, 3, and so forth).

121

Deviations from this requirement have been found to

seriously impair ATF’s ability to trac

e firearms involved in crime.
