    Engraving SBR After Build

    So I had an AKS-74U kit, set up a NFA trust, received my form 1 and sent it to builder. Got the gun back and put it in the safe, I have another one that I shoot. Took it out recently to show someone and I noticed that the trust info was not engraved on the receiver! So now what? Can I just send it to anyone to engrave?

    I did mine myself quick and dirty. Chicken scratch with an engraver. Not too concerned about what it looks like since im the only gun enthusiast in my family so all my class 3 weapons will be chopped when im gone.

    If you're sending it to someone, don't they have to be an FFL since it's leaving your possession?

    yes and no. A regular ffl/ gunsmith you have to be physically present with the firearm or item. Can’t leave it with them. I think it has to be a ffl/ gunsmith that has the proper licensing for class 3 items that you can leave it with. I cut out the hassle of all that stuff and used a stamp set and engraving tool on my last two.

    I'm not 100% sure things will turn out that way. A law preventing kit builds or making of SBR's would make your firearms worth more than the sum of the parts.

    Indeed. At the very least try to convince people of the value of the guns so they at least sell them to someone who wants them. Or will them to someone more deserving of them even if its outside the family.

    Totally agree. Think if people had the same attitude towards FA before 1986? :O

    Off topic a little, but what is the preferred way to blacken the engraving...just use black paint or aluminum black? When I use the aluminum black, it blends the engraving in where you can't read it unless you turn it sideways under the light.

    You could try some cold blue if you are talking something non-aluminum (like an AR receiver).

    An AR receiver is aluminum.

    Yeah I worded that weirdly. I meant an AR receiver is an example of something that would not work.
