    I don't think it's this simple. IIRC the regs call for the engraving to be a certain size, and depth which would require specific machinery. This isn't as simple as an electropencil scrawl.

    I have heard mention of precise laser engraving and etching.

    Overall a good discussion with the tech today...the front line CS? Not so much...


    Will be writing my letter tomorrow and sending it off, though I'm sure its falling on deaf ears.
    Isn't it only for firearms that come from outside of Canada?......

    This link makes mention of it. Although I am not sure how much I trust ammoland though, because judging by this quote from that page:

    Why can't the manufacturers apply the marking when the firearm is manufactured? Because Canada’s Bill C-10 Regulations state precisely when those markings must be applied:

    3. (1) Every individual, business or public service agency that imports a firearm shall ensure that the firearm is marked in accordance with section 4 before the 60th day after its release as defined in subsection 2(1) of the Customs Act or before transferring the firearm, whichever occurs first.
    But I don't see anywhere that says it can't be done by the manufacturer. If the manufacturer applied the laser engraving, wouldn't it be legit? as it is "Before the 60th day after its release"?


    Has any other countries implemented any of this stuff? Are there any real-world examples we can draw on? (I'm not trying to downplay the issue, clearly it shouldn't be happening, but I like to know some facts before I make a decision, not just opinions and hearsay.)

    The only one I saw marked like that is B&T APC556. You can google the pics. it starts with CH for swissland, then year, then serial number. So it looks like CH 15 2885.

    Also there is youtube video from shot-show and the ones there are marked US 16 XXXX.

    We got some canadian APCs so people can say if theirs are makred CA 17 XXXX.

    A few.

    I mean if you buy an NEA lower and assemble it you won't have to have it engraved. IDK what the guy is building but in the chance that the RCMP told him every gun needs to be engraved at least he now knows Canadian ones won't.

    You could use a punch though. It would be ugly, and have the finish issues as suggested earlier.
