Metal is a difficult material to engrave. This is especially true if you want to
get a deep engraving. Different types of metals react differently to the heat,
and you want to make sure nothing gets overheated. Along with the type of
metal being used, you also have to have a deep understanding of how your
laser engraver works.
Still, there are several reasons why you may want to engrave your metal
weapons. We’ll list them below.

Serializing Your Gun
If you’re making your own guns, you need them to be serialized. This means
engraving numbers onto the surface of the metal. This helps law
enforcement if they’re trying to decide who a particular gun belongs to.

report it as soon as possible. This lets law enforcement know that your gun is
no longer in your control.
