Engraved vs. laser etched HK logo

Why did H & K go from engraving to laser etching the HK logo on their slides? The engraved version was much better.

Maybe someone else makes their slides and then they only add their logo when it meets HKs QC?

Laser is cheaper and faster. Plus it allows them to do all the logos at the same time.
Cheaper and faster by far. Lasers can mark metal at a blinding speed, and there's no cutter to break. And once the fixture is made, will always be the same depth. When a cutter breaks, the marking operation is down until the tool is changed and the depth is reset. Not a problem with a laser marker.

Pssst...those are called 'Roll Marks', not engravings ;)

My Tactical is laser etched H&K logo - not a real fan of laser etching, I prefer roll marks.
