IDENT Marking Services

In Review by Rich2 Comments

If you haven’t heard of IDENT Marking Services, they’re a Texas based company that does laser engraving. Specifically, they can laser engrave your receiver if you plan to file a Form 1 and make yourself a short barrelled rifle (SBR). While this is usually talked about in the context of the AR15, and that’s actually what I had engraved, it can be applicable to the precision shooting crowd as well. Think about the potential for a handy, short rifle, chambered in 300BLK for hunting at shorter ranges. You could do it on an auto loader platform like an AR15 or on a bolt action like a Remington Model 7 or Model 700 receiver. With an 8-10″ barrel you would still be getting the most out of the cartridge, while having an exceptionally small package to use for closer range precision work!

Phoenix Custom Rifles Gunsmithing

In Review by Rich4 Comments

This month while working on Project Remage, article soon to come, we had to find a worthy Gunsmith to send our donor action off to for some work. After researching services and doing price comparisons and factoring in lead times we decided to give the folks at Phoenix Custom Rifles a whirl with the modifications we were after. The company is run by a father and son team named Keith and Brad Johns. They were extremely helpful and responsive via email as we were asking questions about the services we were interested in. That’s a big plus, good communication is very helpful.
