Either mfg. is held in high regard. Unsure who would do a better job of special engraving. Almost every plate I've purchased has been KMP design and Tom's trigger/sear is considered the 'industry-standard' for both the .30 cal and .50 cal semi-weapons.
if you want the best see if you can find a sam plate. but i think he quit making them.
KMP will not engrave anything but what the ATF said i could on my plates. And thats just my info and SN.
how anybody else does it is up to them. My intent is to retire NOT in prison. !!!
fftopic: Tomt -- I had NO idea BATFE (Bureau of All Things Fun and Exciting) regulates only that information could go on the (outside?) of the side-plate! You mean IF I have "F*** The Gubbmint" or "As for me, give me Liberty of give me Death" I can get a free vacation at the GrayBar Hotel? So lots of folks are potentially in trouble?
the ATF told me (personally-letter form) that i must engrave my info on the outside of the RHSP.
they did not say where only that it has my info on the outside.
if you build your own gun -not for profit. they really don't care. but as a dealer i must do what they tell me. so i do !!
