Mel I agree Barrel or floor plate is probably the easiest, as they can be worked on without the need to have the entire rifle sitting on the engraver's table.
What are your thoughts on a logo? I currently have some free time to play around with the drawings, and thought your insight / thoughts / wants / dislikes would be helpful.
You also need to think about the timing of the engraving of the logo (before or after the barrel treatment / paint) I've seen it both ways. They both look nice. My .308 from Patriot Arms was engraved after the barrel treatment. I kinda like it.
Jeff, would you mind if i send you the image I came up with and you post it for me. I checked into that photobucket and I get too much junk email as it is. Don't ever give the major airlines your email when you sign up frequent flyer miles. They hound me relentlessly but I have gotten some really good deals.
Mel I emailed the image to Jeffvn and he will get it posted for me when he gets a few minutes. I tried to keep it simple so it would be easier to engrave. If you ever need any kind of mechanical design/drafting work done give me a shout. That's what I do for a living right now.
JeffVN's recommendation for SC Logo. Please forgive the cut and paste nature of this logo, but my time to work on it was limited and I wanted to get it up as quickly as possible. Obviously, the SC2 would have a different number in the center of the image.
I like this one. It has a very military (US Army) flavor to it (at least in my eyes). It looks a lot like the patches used for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd Armored brigade.
The One Shot One Kill slogan is a bit overused, which is why I was thinking of using OSOK instead, kind of a "if your in the know, you'll understand". The logo may even work without the wording at all...
keep working with it.
thanks for posting it. Its not bad, but like One Shot One Kill, the crosshairs I think are over used in the idustry. Go ahead and send a PM with a description of your other idea.
