    Hey guys i had my ATF appointment today which went well and i believe will be getting our 07 mfg license.

    My Plan: have my logo and biz name stamped on the lower.

    Question: What companies will make me a stripped lower reciever stamped with my logo and serial numbers???

    Also anything else i need to know?

    Thanks,
    Zkovach

    Also, I gleaned this from another site. May prove a good starting point.

    Time to make some phone calls.

    Contact Detroit Gun Works. They'll do it. Great lowers too and they mill their own. They have the same machine that mac uses to make iPad and iPhone shells.

    There are only about 6 big producers of lowers. Any of them will do this for you but all have min orders. If your getting a 07 why not just do them yourself?

    Good luck my friend. Thats the same way I went about doing things. To be honest it suck at first bc the cash flow isn't there. All your revenue goes to equipment but as things move along its gets better and you don't have that giant loan and commitment always over your head.

    O ok. There are plenty of places that will make them and mark them how you want.

    There's no reason why I couldn't work that out. Is anyone else seriously interested?

    That would be cool. Im tell'n ya call DGW they are happy to do it. The only thing they will place on it is a serial number then the rest is your design. You can't beat their volume pricing either.

    Realistically Z. How many TFFers need to line up for a lower to make it happen? Im dead serious about buying one.

    I'd put in for a TFF marked lower too.
    Even if the quantities don't show up for a custom TFF-marked run, keep us posted on what they're gonna sell for.

    Good luck with your venture!
    I still miss working for myself, running my repair shop, but I can't beat the paycheck and benefits working for someone else too.
