    Default USC with white lettering on side.

    Anyone familiar with why some HK USC's have white lettering on the side...I had one which did not...seemed to look more aesthetic than seeing the bold white ones....I am considering buying a new one which has the white letters and wonder if the white is easily removed without damaging the actual polymer...any insight would be appreciated...
    Thanks..

    I asked two of the builders the same question a while back. The answer was that those letters are laser engraved and the receiver would have to be sanded down and remarked to remove them. I did not pursue the matter further as I plan to send it out for a fuse job and remarked to UMP.

    do you think it makes less desirable if down the road, I decide to sell it?

    I don't think it would affect the value.

    The white lettering is UV printed and is not totally removable, I get allot of request to refinish that side of the rifle and laser engrave in those markings to look like the original USC.
