Default Laser Engraving

My 16 year old son recently died. Before he died he made an excellent AR 15 from reciever up. Besides joining the Marines one of his life goals was to becomae a gunsmith and make custom arms ala Kimber, Wilson Combat etc. Since he is dead he will never get to see it but I would like to give him his company

I would like to have an emblem engraved into the guns he had already built. I would like to add his "company logo" onto these guns.

Where would I go to get such engraving? I live in North Oklahoma City but I would be willing to travel to have this done.

Check with some local jewelry repair shops as to who they use for engraving.

Another source would a local trophy shop.

Sorry about your loss !

Check with GRS in Emporia Kansas. They manufacture the actual tools for this type of engraving. They have several samples in their catalog of work done on guns, etc. I'll bet they have someone who is the best they know who will do this for you. Below is their web address. Bill Janney, who carves gunstocks and is pretty big in the woodcarving world also does engraving. He gives seminars there. They have a pretty awesome gallery you can look at on this site. I bet living in North Oklahoma, Emporia KS is probably 4-5 hours away is all.
