Nice. Anything closer to Nashua?
It’s back door gun control! Lol!This is one of the worst websites ever to use. Keep getting hung up on payment. Logged out, logged in, lost info LMAO even after saving. Hilarious. Had to use FF, because chrome wouldn't work, and it wouldn't accept my version of explorer. Whatever. Try again in a minute.
Throw it on the laser engraver and go to town. Maker's name, town and state abbreviation, model, serial number, and caliber.
This is incorrect. A maker of a firearm is not required to engrave the caliber or serial number. An example of a maker would be somebody who uses an eForm 1 to shorten the barrel of a serialized rifle they purchased with a 16 inch barrel. This is what @Steelitall did. A maker only engraves the following,
The maker, (or trust)
City and state. (The state can be abbreviated to the official two letter code or spelled out completely.)
If you build a rifle on your work bench from unserialized parts from scratch you would engrave the information you listed. In this scenario you are the original manufacturer, not the maker.
Sorry, my fault for not making it clear, this applies to my situation and is an 80%, so I am the manufacturer.
But yes, if this were a serialized receiver the last three lines would not be needed.
It’s probably more my issue. I hate engraving, it annoys the shit out of me that I have to add it to a rifle manufactured by somebody else. I wouldn't want to add anything extra lol. I go to great lengths to keep the engraving legal and (almost) hidden!
You engrave exactly what you listed in box 3b.
Question for all you who know:
If when entering the data on the form, I supplied a middle initial, must that be included in the engraving?
eg: John B Doe
vs John Doe
It should be noted that there is a process to gain approval for abbreviations in general use. It seems to be aimed at original manufacturers however it looks like it applies to makers. If your name was William B Doe, you can ask for approval to use Wm. B Doe or WB Doe through the following link and form. I would just engrave what's in 3b lol.

My paper application for the post-healy lower was filed in October, so it should be coming along any time lol.
I planned to cancel it but was told yesterday that I should wait "wink wink"After eForms came on line to some extent but especially after the shutdown paper submissions slowed way down. The latest approval I have seen on a paper Form 1 was submitted 7/26/18. I would be tempted to cancel and efile, then again, its a good reason to just efile another SBR and have it approved in 10 days!
Starting to see end of June and early July Form 4s coming back. Mines from Mid-August.... god.... At this rate, I might actually get my original Silencerco can before the promos ones show up.
