Jackrabbit Designs Custom Laser Engraving

It should be no secret that I am a fan of customizing and personalizing weapons. You own it, so you should make it uniquely yours.

Jackrabbit Designs (out of Waxahachie, TX) is now offering custom laser engraving of, well, anything you want to send them. They can do it on grips that they sell, or you can send in your own grips, holsters, pretty much anything that is not serialized–they are not an FFL so they cannot accept components that category. That said I don’t know if it would change if you were local and could wait while they did it–I have no idea how long it takes them. I’m pretty sure you could certainly send in an 80% lower…

They can engrave nearly anything you want. They have art, or you can send in logos, department artwork, etc. Get your initials cut in. Have some identifying information cut in to deter theft. Make it yours!

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    what’s the rule abut shipping serialized parts? er.. “givng them to someone to work on”
    can they hold it for less than 24hrs? do you have to be present while they work on it?

    • BryanS

      As a laser engraver myself, an FFL would have to receive the serialized part. Its why i only accept walk-ins for receivers (for right now)

      • gunslinger

        so you can’t hold a serialized part overnight?

        • BryanS

          I am not Jackrabbit, so I cannot speak for them. In my case, I cannot receive a firearm legally in the mail for that purpose. My understanding is that the person doing the work would need to have at least a gunsmithing FFL.

            well you “received” it when the customer gave it to you. but, what i was asking was if i bring it in to your store today, can i leave it with you overnight and pick it up tomorrow?

          • BryanS

            Not something I would do, without an FFL, not sure it is legal. As a private individual in PA, it is one thing to borrow a firearm. I only do that for relatives though, not as a course of business, yet. 🙂

      From what I understand, you need to be present while they work on it If the serialized part is going to a non-FFL.

      In my case, the only reason I have to engrave anything is for compliance with NFA marking requirements. I’m planning to file a Form 1 on a few of my rifles this year.

      What if it’s a European gun, like a Glock, an HK, or a Beretta, and it has the serial number on the barrel, slide, AND frame, even though only the frame is the firearm in the United States?
