    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.

    Ohh...I still do some repair work on my days off when I'm not helping out at the farm.
    Other than the lack of money in the bank, I miss doing my own thing daily though. In particular I really miss doing service calls.

    :thumbsup:
    Reading this thread just put me over the edge on deciding if I wanted to attempt my first build.

    Dgw is very busy right now, who would have thought with the election coming. There have a 50 minimum order right now which I could not do financially. This is for setting up a special tff run. I'd suggest maybe getting a lower and having an engraver do it at this point.

    mind if i suggest you look at doing it yourself

    get the lowers made you engrave em

    back in a sec to show you what some folks here use

    $800 two folks bought one between them and its saved em a heap

    should be cheaper in the US

    my mill is CNC and i can import a line drawing and it'll do the rest

    you can do really nice fonts engrave scrolls even

    grab any image convert it and reproduce it in line art

    even put your name on barrels or such safe fire markings etc ..

    Probably in the future jack but my license just came in and have a full time job as well. We're gonna start small and maybe work into something like that.

    Im right there with ya Z. I am doing 2 full time gigs myself.

    Maybe you could start a list and have folks chime in if they would be interested in a TFF lower. Then once you reach 50 interested members have them all pay in advance. that way you could get it goin and youd be able to grab a lower or 2 yourself since youd have the minimum order covered.

    Just a thought.
