NFA Trust & Manufacturing Engraving

At Accubeam, we provide laser marking, engraving, and cutting services to customers in a wide range of industries. One of our core markets is the firearms industry. For these customers, we offer Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) laser engraving for National Firearms Act (NFA) weapons, including short barrel shotguns (SBSs), short barrel rifles (SBRs), and silencers marked in compliance with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) standards. This service allows them to add important information (e.g., serial numbers and owner info) and personalized elements (e.g., custom graphics) to their firearms.

Our Gun Engraving Capabilities

Our Gun Engraving Capabilities

At Accubeam, we are highly experienced in laser engraving and familiar with all aspects of 27 CFR § 479.102. Combined, these qualities make us an ideal partner for all firearm engraving needs. 

We maintain a license from the ATF that allows us to act as a Type 07 Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) and Special Occupation Taxpayer (SOT). It enables us to take possession of firearms, suppressors, stocks, barrels, uppers and lowers, and rails and accessories and engrave them with the necessary information (e.g., serial numbers, owner/NFA trust info, etc.) and personalized text and graphics legally. 

We can possess and laser engrave the following types of firearms and firearm components:

  • Pistols
  • Machine pistols
  • Semi-automatic pistols
  • Revolvers
  • AR-15 rifles
  • Short barrel rifles (SBRs)
  • Short barrel shotguns (SBSs)
  • Class III firearms
  • NFA firearms
  • Silencers
  • Suppressors

An Overview of Engraving Requirements for NFA Firearms

Before a firearm or suppressor is made, the individual or entity building the firearm must file an application with and receive permission from the ATF before proceeding with manufacturing. The approved application should bear the NFA stamp, which indicates the make, model, serial number, barrel length, total length, and caliber/gauge of the firearm.

All of this information should then be engraved (or otherwise permanently marked) by the maker on the appropriate parts (i.e., the frame, receiver, or barrel, depending on the information in question). If the firearm marker is an individual, the finished firearm should also be engraved with the individual’s name and the city and state in which it was produced.

If the firearm marker is an NFA gun trust rather than an individual, the finished firearm should be engraved with the name of the trust in place of the name of the individual. 

The requirements for the engraving are outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations § 479.102. Some of the key points indicated include: 

  • The markings should be placed conspicuously on the firearm. 
  • The markings should be created such that they cannot be easily removed or altered.  
  • The markings should be made to a minimum depth of 0.003 inches and print size of ≥0.0625 inches. 

These constraints apply to all firearm manufacturers, makers, and importers. Individuals or entities buying pre-manufactured firearms are not required to engrave the purchased firearms as they should already be appropriately marked.
