    Question Question about SBR engraving location

    Hi, all.

    I'm finally getting around to submitting the Form 1 to SBR my Vector V51 pistol. And now that I'm doing so, I'm not sure where on the receiver I should have the NFA info engraved. The mag well flats are already stamped with "VECTOR ARMS NSL., UT | PTR-91P" on the left side and "J.L.D. Enterprises Inc. | Farmington, CT. | USA | .308 cal." on the right side.

    The barrel is covered by the hand guards. The rear receiver flats by the rear take down pin holes would seem to be a nice location (nice and flat anyhow), but would be covered with the recoil assemble install. Neither the hand guards nor the recoil assembly require tools for removal (just push out the take down pins), so would either of those be legal location for the NFA/SBR engraving? Or is is legally required to have the engraving visible without doing anything to the firearm to show where they're located?

    Thanks in advance.

    Must be readily visible. Do it in the rails where the arms from a collapale stock would be.

    well, if you're going to engrave it, I would engrave it on the front of the mag well.

    All of my SBR's are engraved on the receiver inside the trigger guard, that section of receiver in front of the trigger, but before the guard.
    Tar Heel State Firearms does an excellent job, and has very reasonable pricing.

    Must be on AR's. Trigger box is not part of the receiver on a roller locked.

    I would put it on the vector side, between the rollers rail and cocking tube. (Opposite the ejection port)

    Sounds like the stock channel is a pretty common place for these sort of markings. I assumed it would be rather hard to get into that space for engraving purposes... shows what I know about engraving, eh?

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Looks like this will be easier than I had anticipated.

    Cheers,
