    Just hop on youtube and watch MORE THAN one video on how to do it and then go slow when you do. You can always take off more material. Adding it back in is a little trickier.

    Also, telling women that in some circles you are known as "Battle Cock" doesn't really work. I would know.

    As far as the machining goes, I'll be alright. Unless I do something seriously stupid, which I have to admit, I've been guilty of before. I've got a "little" experience. No worries though, I'll be using a friend's mill, and he's a master machinist and he'll be watching over my shoulder.

    As far as appropriating your name, all I can say is damn...thought I had something going for me there for a moment.

    How that BC is working under a FFL, it would seem like it's a better idea to machine it first, check for fit/function, then send it off for stippling.

    Gotta put identifying marks on it like a serial number if you want to send it out for work after machining.

    I agree. It would be worth the effort to stamp a number or letter or two on the plate, and make sure you have a firearm that will function before you spend the extra money.

    BTW - I've been thinking about this. Is there some legal parameters as far as choosing a serial number for a "one off" project like this? If you did a second, would they have to be consecutive, and/or would you be considered a manufacturer? I wouldn't even begin to know where to start looking for the answer to this. Thanks ahead.

    This Polymer 80 thing sounds worse and worse.

    You don't have to register it or anything. Those marks are just so your FFL can properly log it without scrutiny.

    My comment was obviously in jest. I'm still doing one. I've got enough Glock parts floating around for another 19 build. The Polymer80 is cheap enough to try out for me.

Example: I sent a pistol to APEX tactical a couple of years ago, and I just sent it FedEx straight to them, and they sent it back to my house, no problem.

    You are correct. Apex is the FFL that would need the identifying marks for their books.

    It can be logged without.. but it's sketchy at inspection time, although likely becoming more common. I won't take unmarked "modern" DIY guns in, for that reason. I do get repairs in of old stuff that has no SN, I just mark NA in that category.

    Nope to all. Mark whatever you want. There are restrictions in place when it comes to marking formats for licensed manufacturers, but not to individuals building a personal gun.

    Mark it 1, 8, K, 007 - whatever. You are just giving it a designation to log in for an FFL or LEO - it's still weird on the logbooks because the manufacturer field gets left "NA"

    I asked LP to pose that question to the local ATF agent at a meeting and he said their stance was that all modern private builds required ID marks to be logged at an FFL.

    That might not be the hardline (in writing) nationwide but I ain't going to toe that line any more than I need to.

    You've seen the stippling, but have you seen this?
