Was wondering if anyone here had done anything like this.
My sister was asking me the other day if it was possible to engrave the Marlin 60 she inherited with our father's name and dates. I told her I supposed it was possible to have it engraved or stamped or something like that, but I am very ignorant of metal working and don't know if it could be done in such a way as to not ruin the finish.
Custom decal maybe... I don't know. The text would pretty pretty short, 23 characters I think by my count if we went with the bare minimum. I think if we went with a longer engraving she was considering, it'd be three or four times that.
I really hate the hassle of shipping things to and from an FFL, but that might be my only recourse here, but I figured we have enough 1911 lovers and do it yourselfers and custom gun buyers here someone might know what to tell me.
I'm not adverse to taking it to a venue where they engrave things and just aren't used to guns, but as I was saying I don't think it's just that simple.
