    Difference in date codes IIRC?

    Interesting how he just marked right over the MFG markings.

    Doesnt change them any the way it looks to me. Just like putting a coat of paint over them. Depth isnt changed if your just etching off anodizing.

    The demilled HK in his photos has the older font even though it is “Ashburn”. HK updated the font and changed it to the same font on the MR series.

    That wasn’t really my point. Their post seemed to imply they used the demil to do their engravings, but they didn’t because the cities are different. My gusss is they are using the file circulated by Justin at CNC guns.

    They definitely are using the file from Justin. I recognize that 4 1 6 D. “Absolute perfect match”.... trying to pull a fast one.



    Better example of their sample vs finished product:

    Gotcha, yeah, I use his font for everything HK related. I couldn’t find the “older” style font. I would say they are using the files or at least the font from Justin too.

    Apologies, but could someone educate me on the different fonts being discussed?

    Idk if there is an outright font match by name, but I have understood it to be a modified arial with a certain spacing between the letters. There are so few Sterling I guess I never noticed there was a change.

    Both of these are true 416 lowers. The first is the older font.

    This is the newer font (matches Justin’s more and the MR556/MR762 font

    Evidently they changed the font after Ashburn but right before the MR series rifles came out. Some Ashburns have the old font, most have the newer style.
