I had mine engraved on the inside of the magwell lip. You can barely see it which is what I wanted.

I had a couple engraved inside trigger area on the receiver housing. A couple others on the side of the receiver in a more traditional location. I prefer inside the trigger area, but finding the right shop to do this type of engraving, locally, may be more of a challenge.

Another one for inside the magwell lip. I鈥檝e done two of my Noveske AR lowers in that location. Great, inconspicuous location for AR variants.

A lot of people will draw up a legal trust (鈥済un trust鈥) to hold their NFA weapons. The advantage is that you can assign multiple people to the trust, which means they can have possession of them without you being there. It can also make it easier when your estate is being settled鈥f someone from the trust takes an NFA item, they don鈥檛 have to pay for an additional tax stamp. It seems like Form 1鈥檚 for trusts get approved faster, but that鈥檚 just anecdotal.

Some people just do a single trust for every item (you can always add people,later) or you can have a single trust and just update the inventory when you add items. If you鈥檙e going to own more than one (which you probably will) they make sense. There are various sources and you do have to spend some money to get them set up, but they do make things easier.

Sort of a side topic, but my buddy and I were talking about adding people to a trust on Saturday.

It is my understanding that there is no statutory requirement to notify the ATF of any changes to a trust, even if you add people after the fact.

He said he thought you did have to.

Anybody know for sure?

I did email my lawyer, but who knows when they'll email back.

Make sure whoever is doing the engraving has experience in that type of markings. Besides the location the depth and type can be an issue.

That depends if they are being added as a respoinsible person or beneficiary. Reading various sections on adding requires documents generated and sent into the ATF. Where is seens to gets more complicated is when items are added on to it. The type of trust also seems to matter. I would run it by the lawyer who drew it up in the first place.

I deleted one person and it was handled by the lawyer.
