    Default Question About Pictogram Housings

    Question for everyone......

    With the German/HK pictogram trigger housings, are the bullet markings engraved or stamped into the polymer like the SEF housings?

    The reason I ask is that I purchased a U.S. made pictogram housing and I am a little dismayed that the markings are only painted on. I had assumed that they would be stamped in and then colored in, but maybe my thinking is off. ????

    Pictogram housings have a very shallow engraving. The SEF is deeply stamped.

    Is the US made picto housing you bought for an SEF pack and selector or is it a true AMBI?

    This one. What worries me is that if the picto markings are only painted on the surface instead if being recessed, that they will quickly wear off. If I can confirm that the HK picto housings are recessed, I'll probably send this one back and get the German manufactured housing.

    They are indeed recessed.
