    There are requirement on this from the NFA rules.
    Mine are engraved at the lower rear corner on the right side of the reciever.

    I know there are guidelines as to it has to be visible with out disassembly and so big and deep. I was just referring to if there was a few places she will engrave it or what choices you had. Thanks wall.

    There is no size requirement, only a depth requirement of three thousandths of and inch. She engraves most people's under the fire selector on the right side. It is inconspicuous and looks good. I've seen one she did on the magwell. They don't look as good there IMO.

    It needs to be legible.

    Got it done by SW engravers today. As far as placement options, there is the magwell, or right above the trigger above the pin hole. She didn't mention anything about engraving in the trigger area below the receiver. The lettering is very neat and professional looking. It only took about ten minutes to get it done. She charged ten dollars, but I tipped five on top, and it was well worth it. I see that most people color in their name, or blue over it. I kind of like the bare aluminum numbers.

    Got mine done today. Below the selector on the right side as usual. Cost $10, but I threw her five more for being awesome and doing this for us while we wait.
