    What do you guys think of this. How you think it looks? Good? Bad? indifferent? I dont care, i am looking for honest opinions..i'm a big boy with thick skin.

    I wished i had some bright red paint to do the "fire" engraved letters.

    Call me prarnoid, but i "blackout" the serial numbers for the photo op...the serial number IS still there! I didnt highlight that engraving...i left that blackened.

    fmj,

    Looks good and I think the Red in the fire position is a great idea!

    Looks good, fmj. I obscure SNs too. No need to put it out on the web.

    Thanks guys. A couple of others here have done it with theirs and i thought "that kinda cool, i should do that some time" so i did. Wife and youngest were against it...until they saw the finished product....they like it now that they see it.

    Looks good I'd like to pick up a PSA lower if they ever come back into stock.

    That looks really good! I'm not an AR guy, so I originally thought it was factory!:D

    What's the method to accomplish that? What did you use? I just got a dpms Panther and am considering doing it myself..

    I just had some old model paint on the shelf in the re-loading room. Cleaned the area well with paint thinner, let it dry, covered the area with white paint, took a paper towel soaked with paint thinner and lightly wiped the area clean, leaving behind the white paint in the engraving, let dry well, wiped off the white "residue" well with another piece of paper towel soaked in paint thinner until clean.

    Simple.
