Custom Steel Hand Stamps For Rifles

Posted by Matt Martin

Allan Broughman owns Broughman Gun Shop in Covington, VA, and is a gun expert specializing in restoring guns and building custom rifles. For the last few years, Durable Technologies has been making custom steel hand stamps for him to mark his rifles.

He uses a clamp to hold the gun barrel and a fixture to secure the hand stamp in place so he gets a good mark every time.

The ATF now requires the company name and location on the receiver, so he is also starting the process of marking that information.

"Durable adjusted my last order even though they had started it, and they were very accommodating and helpful. We guarantee our work, as does Durable Technologies, so I appreciate their approach to service since it matches mine. We appreciate the quality of the Durable hand stamps," says Mr. Broughman.

Durable Technologies manufactures heavy-duty steel hand stamps for any part marking requirement. These hand stamps are made from a special grade of tool steel, and they resist spalling and mushrooming, so they are safe for operators to use.

Characters can be sharp face, low-stress full characters, or low-stress dot characters depending on your requirements.
