Firearm NFA Engraving
For over 16 years we have been marking firearms to ATF compliance specifications in our own manufacturing as well as for customers wishing to make an NFA firearm on their own. Using the latest laser engraving technology, our staff of engineers and graphic artists can engrave in your choice of locations, quickly and efficiently. Want to see some examples? Check out our firearm gallery for many NFA and other engraving examples on various types of firearms.
Do you really need to have my NFA firearm engraved? In short, the answer is yes, and here's why... In accordance with ATF Rules, all individuals which are non FFL holders wishing to make a NFA firearm must complete an ATF Form 1. The individual as the "maker" of the firearm must have the firearm marked with their Name, City & State or in the case of a trust, Trust Name, City & State. Caliber must also be added if there is no specific caliber already marked on the firearm that matches the caliber noted on the Form 1 application. If the firearm is marked "MULTI", a specific caliber will still be required to be engraved on the firearm.
Our facility is located 10 minutes North of Downtown Houston or about 3 miles north of the 610 Loop. We are at our shop Monday thru Friday, 9-5, but encourage customers to call ahead before dropping off their firearm to be engraved.

In addition to your firearm(s), please bring; - State Drivers License - Copy of Form 1 or know exact text to be engraved as outlined above.
If mailing your receiver please include the following information; - Clear photo copy of your state Drivers License or ID - Your Email Address - Your Daytime Phone - Exact text to be engraved - Location to be engraved.
Once we received your receiver we will send your a follow up email to confirm the text. There is no additional charge if your text extends beyond the usual 2 to 3 lines. Please keep in mind, if you have a long Trust Name or City, State, you may not be able to have the receiver engraved in areas that offer limited space.
Fonts: We suggest keeping your NFA Trust Engraving in a similar font to match the factory to maintain textual continuity. Usually Helvetica or Arial are the fonts of choice. However, if you want a special font or point size, let us know.... we have thousands in our library.
SHIPPING: To minimize shipping costs, we recommend disassembling down to the receiver or as far as your comfort level will allow. You will be called or emailed regarding the cost of return shipping.
