Just got my build back from the shop and was informed that since I was using a pre hardened reciever (NDS), the builder was unable to do the selector indents and markings.

Does this make sense? What kind of tools would I need to this myself or can it be done at all?

Some people don't have the tools required or skillset to engrave the hardened recievers but it is done all the time by others....you need a different shop.

Hardened or not - you can electro-etch yourself with a D.D. template. Takes about......15mins? What markings are you trying to get done?

Need to do the selector notches and the lettering...its for a Romy G.

I'll look into the electro-etch since I would prefer to do it myself.

I've heard about synweap223 who apparently has tons of templates and will explain the process, going to contact him.

Do you know what kind of tools would be required?

Orion-Arms can do markings for you, and cut notches. However if you have a dremel you can cut them yourself. Not that hard to do, just practice on a scrap piece.
I'll check them out...the notches don't seem like a big deal, it's the lettering that I would think would be harder than cutting the notches

Orion is a bit pricey, but good work. I had a small hiccup with them but it was my fault for assuming something instead of asking. It I remember correctly, it's 45 dollars for markings, 15 for notches and 15 return postage and insurance. I'm going to be sending them another receiver soon to get the SBR engraving.

Not bad pricing considering what I've been quoted by another shop...really appreciate the info, what kind of SBR are you building?
