Misspelled Trust Engraving or Individual Engraving for you Silencer or SBR

After your ATF Form 1 or ATF eForm 1 firearms are approved, you will be required to engrave the gun trust information, legal entity information, or the individual applicant’s information on the firearm.  You can mail your ATF Form 1 or ATF eForm 1 firearms to a reputable company or have your firearm engraved locally.  But accidents can happen.  What happens if the engraver makes a spelling mistake with your engraving? You can remove the misspelled gun trust information, legal entity information, or the individual applicant’s information on the firearm and engrave your correct gun trust information, legal entity information, or the individual applicant information in another place on the firearm.  The process to remove the misspelled engravings will depend on how the engraving was performed on your firearm and the material of your firearm.  The engraver should be able to help you with ways to remedy the mistake and engrave your firearm again.  Note: In no way may you alter the serial number of the firearm.  But you can engrave the serial number in another spot though.
