    I'm gonna have mine done on the front of magwell. Thought about doing it under the trigger guard but I don't want to remove the trigger group. Leaving the right side open in case I want to put in a logo.

    I thought it had to be in a conspicuous spot :dunno: I wouldn't put it underneath the trigger guard. Go for the "normal" spot, right side, above trigger and hammer pins.

    edit : if it doesn't have to be in a conspicuous spot, yeah, I'd hide it :o

    you can't hide it. it's my understanding that it has to be visible, i.e. you can't put it under where the pistol grip mounts or something.

    Right side, above pins.

    Dumb question: Is it a requirement for trusts to be named "________ Trust" or is everybody just horribly uncreative?

    I just got back from getting it engraved. It took about 20 minutes getting it lined up, testing it, then the actual laser part. I think mine is about .010-.015" deep. He put some blue fluid on it which reacts to the aluminum to make it black again (your option). Pretty cool guy and charges much less than Orion. He's in the process of getting his FFL so if anyone needs engraving done in the future give him a call.

    I get home in about 30 minutes.

    He leaves the shop at 3 so I had to take an extended lunch break.

    Picked it up Wednesday and sold the stock the same day. One little annoying part is that I shouldve told him to take off the period after "MO".

    Does the engraving have to be engraved into the metal or can the phosphate be burned off instead?

    The requirement is that it needs to be at least .003" deep.
