    I have never seen this discussed. Of course it should be done in a well supported (supportable) area of the AR lower receiver. Any mechanical reason this would not work?

    Intresting idea but I think that's a bit silly to do having a metal stamp cut to ID your SBR unless you're doing 10+ and even then wouldn't it just be cheaper to have someone engrave em for you?

    Individual letter stamps available in various sizes starting at $10. I have 1/8" and 1/16" already.

    I have a pal who stamped his SBR'd Auto Ordinance Thompson.

    Personally, I'd have had it engraved, but he wanted to do everything himself.

    Nothing wrong with stamping versus engraving as long as the receiver is properly supported. Most folks just prefer the neater engraved look.

    dremel with a .050 carbide ball cutter

    and some practice would be much better on the mechanical of any metal.
    Used to ID mold parts in a mold shop with one for years. For very hard steels we would get a cheap diamond burr.

    Make sure you practice, because the thing can "take off" in an unwanted direction.
