As far as the actual laser etching, instead of roll marks. Essentially what it requires is a laser engraver. Not your average laser engraver. Most of them can only burn into paper, possibly leather. You need a really high wattage machine that can burn into steel, but even more so for hammer forged. To sum it up, it requires a high grade, industrial level laser engraver.
I concur completely.
And don't even get me started on scammers stealing photos posted online and then use them to 'sell' bogus firearms.

Yeah to me it's a good way to mess up and HK..
At a local gun show last year, I saw one almost identical to the expert you displayed in your post. The guy selling it, told me it was factory, but having been collecting Hks for around 20 years, I knew he was full of @#$%. Probably could use lacquer thinner to remove it, but I would be worried about damage to the slide finish. I walked away from it. They guy also said it was a new production, but the date code was an AH if I recall. Buyer always has to beware of crooks, especially dealing with any classic firearm. Just my two cents.
