    Default Assemble BRN-4 lower before or after engraving?

    I was wondering if I should assemble my BRN-4 lower and test it before I send it off for engraving? I hate to have it engraved and find out it has an issue after I get back.

    I think you’ve answered your own question about why it’s a good idea to test it first.
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    I wasn't sure if would cause a problem for the engraver if the lower was fully assembled vs. stripped.

    Before. But if not before, then after.

    Unless there is a component in the way of where the engraving is going to be, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    I contacted the engraver and as long as I remove the buffer tube there is no problem. It needs to be removed so the front of the magwell can be engraved. I removed the buffer tube and pistol grip, plus the loose parts held in by each item and its on its way.

    Tar Heel State Firearms did my brownells lower, I sent it assembled, because as others said, I wanted to make sure it functioned with my 416 upper before doing all the work. They called me and told me they removed the buffer tube to do the front warning info on the receiver, but otherwise sounds like the rest was ok.
