[quote name="JeffL" post="1178934" timestamp="1407889655"]juh6jw6.jpg?1 Trying to figure out the best way to black it out. I don't think it needed to be so huge.[/quote] I had mine done prior to cerakote, so I'm not sure about the blackening. It looks good to me, straight and good depth. Once it's black it won't stand out as much. Did you discuss font size before they did the work?

The gunsmith wasn't there, I requested to be called. Only call that I got was that it was ready.

I had mine put on the front of mag well, so size was limited anyway. (Mike at Law Enforcement Sales did mine) Get it blacked in and it'll be fine.

That's the main thing. i wanted it in front of the mag well if it would fit.

A lower that I'm married to through the NFA laws...I would be pissed if that happened to me.  Nashville Armory seems to be off the list.

 

I guess I'll have to open up myself to a drive after all.  Any other places in Middle TN I could go?

Jeff, I use Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black on my black receivers I do (if the customers want that) .. it does well but FYI, you can temporarily use a Sharpie and it will be ok too... excess will wipe off with gun oil if you get it before it dries.

 

It looks worse than it is b/c you're seeing bare aluminum and it's yours ... seriously isn't bad, just a little large. I've used fonts that size on some personal shop guns b/c I really wanted them "seen" but blacken it out and you'll be ok. I use a font size that's about the size of your fire control markings... 1/8" or smaller...

 

Aluminum Black works good for nicks and scuffs too.

 

I've done several CMTs now and I can tell you those and the Noveskes are the hardest surfaces I've seen in the AR world. I do what I can though to fit things on the front face of the magwell and/or underneath on the trigger guard.

 

I'm not a master engraver by any means and will tell you the laser engravers do a much better job but the old HAAS I got is good enough for Governement work ;o) Hate you're not pleased with it though ;o(

 

If you happen to be coming through the Knoxville area anytime I'd be happy to throw some Alumi black on it for ya for free.

 

Good luck!

 

 

I can go much smaller too but depth becomes an issue. If the receiver is bare we can do smaller than normal but I've seen some finishes that are a few thous themselves. I use this size for instance on my HK and Glock sears..

That's a 22LR for reference :o)

Twice the fee if you watch :o) If you can send me your info and prep the lower (decide where you want it engraved and I'll tell ya what I need done before you come) I'll get things programmed ahead of time and sure if you make the drive I'll fit ya in.
