Thanks

Sorry should have clarified, I'm looking for the best shop to have the marking done at.

But now that you mention it, the best physical location would help as well.

On the side of the Magwell that has no.markings on it. Make sure who ever engraves it goes to the proper depth.

Molon Labe in Peoria at ~83rd Ave and Bell Rd. Laser engraver, very precise. A friend had his AR lower engraved on the inside of trigger guard, above and below the opening where the trigger comes through the lower (depends on how long your name/location is).

I've also used Quentin Defense in Gilbert. They use a CNC mechanical engraver. They are setup to engrave right next to the safe/fire selector.

You can get creative with where you engrave your information; hopefully you have a short name or trust name. Example, my trust name is just my initials, "ABC Trust, Mesa, AZ".

I've seen engravings on the inside of the magazine well, inside the trigger guard, on top of the magazine well (between the upper and lower fitment), single line above the safe/fire selector, on the front of the magazine well below the front take down pin, etc. Wherever it will fit.

...so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Always put mine along the side of the left side of lower receiver near where it meets the upper (kind of above selector markings, but centered in that space). Used to go to Molon Labe in Peoria, but have heard they shut down.

Unfortunately they did close down.
I marked mine on the front of the magwell then filled in with Alumablack to make it so it was not noticeable. Marking was legal but you would never know it was there.

s there another shop as good on the West side?

If Molon Labe is out, then Wright Armory in Mesa does laser NFA engraving. I've got a lower I need to take there this week...

The best place to mark a SBR-AR lower is in the inside top of the trigger well, on both sides of the trigger. The benefit is that it is pretty obscure and if you ever decide to sell the lower as a non NFA item, it become pretty easy with out all the markings visible.

I thought the markings needed to be easily seen in case of ATFE inspection?

We all know how nearly impossible it is to turn a gun upside down.

As far as I can remember, it has to be easily seen without disassembly. You used to be able to engrave the grip tang (so the grip covered it), but they changed that rule years ago.

Inside the trigger well, not the trigger slot inside the receiver, is acceptable to the BAT folks. Have run dozens of them thru the shop. It is easily seen if you look for it.

How and why would one be inspected, unless you are a SOT.

I've had NFA toys for over 40 years, never seen an agent.

As far as stamped stuff goes, no warrant, no looky.
