do trophy shops do this kind of work?
Maybe but if they do make sure that they do the correct depth and size to meet the BATFE requirement. I doubt many trophy shops know that unless you provide them with the info. Also, I've read that some jewelry stores can do it.

Okay, silly questions from a noob. What is being engraved and why? Why would BATFE have specs for how it's done? I'm assuming we're not talking about decorative engraving. Just curious.

My diamond rotary engraving machine could place serial numbers and such. But what is the legality of that?

Short barrel rifle (SBR). If you do it yourself (such as converting a pistol to SBR), you are considered the manufacturer, and the ATF requires you to engrave it. If you purchase an SBR directly from a manufacturer, then it does not require engraving.

Okay, thanks for the education.
