Welcome to the "White Lettering"
section of our website! In this section you will learn how the
author makes serial numbers and other engraved letters or numbers
clearly visible on his firearms. This process is basically a simple
one which requires filling in the letters with a substance that
will contrast with the blue or parkerized background. In these
illustrations white is used, but the same process can be done
on a stainless steel firearm using black.
Step One: UNLOAD and Check, then
When handling firearms responsible owners
will ALWAYS start off with a physical and visual inspection of
the weapon to assure that it is unloaded. This means removing
the magazine if any, opening the action, examining the chamber,
and making damn sure the weapon does not have any rounds or cartridge
casings in it. It is the authors practice to do this when he first
picks up or is handed a firearm and then again when he is ready
to work on it.
The author never works on his weapons when
they are loaded or when they have not been checked at least TWICE.
It is NOT unreasonable to make it a prerequisite to do this at
least two times before doing ANYTHING else with the firearm.
