SBR Question - Engraving Trust Name
« on: March 27, 2018, 10:46:12 PM »
Hello,

New to the forum and new to the BREN. I just took ownership of two: pistol and carbine. For the pistol, I tried the KAK / CZ adapter, but the loose tolerance left much to be desired. So, I've decided to SBR.

I'm thinking of using the Silencer Shop Single Shot Trust and Form 1 service. The single shot trust uses a trust name in this format: <MODEL> <SERIAL> Trust. Since the model is CZ BREN 805 S1 + serial + Trust, the engraving can get long.

Where on the BREN receiver is the engraving most often done? Is there a required location? This will be my first SBR.

Thanks -

I would say it would be on the left side of the upper receiver.

There are 2 approved places.

On the upper receiver, or on the barrel.  ATF likes the receiver the best. 

It has to be in a visible place where it can be viewed without tools to take something off.  Other than that, most people like to make their engravings as inconspicuous as possible.

For a while, there were many people engraving underneath of the pistol grip (where AR's and AK's are concerned), but the atf didn't want to have to carry around a tool box to look at engravings to make sure they are compliant if you were ever checked, so hence the rule that it has to be visible and on the receiver or barrel now.

If you don't have a place local to you that engraves, I recommend tarheelstate firearms.  They've engraved several of my things and are fast, and inexpensive.

Congtratulations.

When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.

Thank You very much for this information as this was going to be my next question. I feel a slight addiction coming on.

Engrave on the large flat surface beneath the right or left front rail positions. Fully visible and on the receiver.

If you are using the one shot trust, the make, model, and ser number are already engraved. Just need the word "trust" and city, state.

How hard is ATF cracking down on this? Have never heard of one incident of failing to engrave.  But I recommend do it since it is required.  Noting in the CFR states it had to be all within a certain format. I use the term 'NFA TRUST"  with city and state.

If you still want to run it in pistol format (live around state borders or home state doesn't allow loaded long arms in vehicles) I can highly recommend the SBT805 brace. Its one of the best braces Ive ever felt. Feels way nicer than my Maxim Defense AR brace that cost almost five times as much.
