    do you have to engrave a firearm that is custom built by myself that is not a NFA weapon.... legal length, semi-auto, or single shot????

    Only if you made the receiver. If you just rebarreled and restocked say, an old 98 mauser then. No.
    If you machined your own AR lower from scratch then. yes and no. not specificaly required by law (execpt in cases of NFA items) but recommended in case of theft.
    Also if you made the receiver your self you can never sell it. legally
    the law states you can make one for your personal use but not for sale

    I do believe the law states (and I am no expert) that you cannot manufacture a firearm with the intent to sell it.... but what about in two or three or five or ten years one decides to sell it.... obviously it was never the intention to build it to sell it.... ???? any experts on this matter???

    As long as you stamped it in accordance with ATF's rules and recomendations. I think there would be no problem.
    I would never buy a completely blank no name no ser # gun (especially a semi-auto) From somebody as my luck, I would get stopped with it and they would try to claim I removed the markings. (Talking new made as opposed to antiques. with regards to markings)
    Over the last 35 years I have encountered lots of guns made by private people and just about every one of those guns were marked. Most of the guys were very proud of what they had built and their names were in big letters on the guns and their ser# were usually something like "EXP0001"
    for experiemental # 1.
