  4. MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE it is being done with a CNC machine. It's the only way to do it right.

    CUSTOM ENGRAVING MAY TAKE 2-4 WEEKS
    they must be busy

    I really like that saying as well but I would make sure to only do it to a range gun.

    If god forbid you ever have to use your firearm in self defense and you go to court they would have a field day with that.

    they say this cost $30, I think that is reasonable but the time is a bit long,

    their defense would be "he is illiterate your honor"
     
  13. 2-4 weeks is very reasonable. Even with existing templates it takes time to setup a CNC machine, do the engraving, clean it up, inspect it, and send it out.

    For me I would go about $1500 in the hole to start engraving.

    I really like the "caution lead poisoning"
     
  15. I was mainly wanting the machine to do custom slide engraving / inlays

    Not everyone is as fortunate as you and I that have several pistols for sd, I am thinking about those that have only one pistol. I know I feel naked without mine.
     
  17. For years and years I only had one, so I can understand. I'm also the type that calls UPS eight times 3 days before delivery wondering why my box isn't here yet. I just understand the business side of being busy and what it takes with the machines.

    I would love it if all my customers had a 3-5 day service time, but then I would have to close my doors to a lot of them to keep tthose time frames.
