The firearms industry, like every manufacturing industry, has product marking requirements. In this industry, however, marking is an even more essential process; and one that is rigidly regulated by law. While firearms is a diverse industry, with sporting, law enforcement and defense markets, the laws that apply to marking are common to most of the segments. In firearms manufacturing, traceability – tracking and verifying the history and movements are vital. Because of that, clear and accurate marking of parts is also vitally important; and for clarity and accuracy, there’s no better system than laser marking. In fact, DoD MIL-STD-130N specifies laser marking as an approved method.

Beamer Laser Marking Systems, an all-American manufacturer, has the critical marking expertise that any firearms manufacturer – from small shops to the very largest manufacturers – needs. Laser marking is fast, flexible, repeatable, durable, and it’s a one-button operation. It saves time in the manufacturing process – in some cases, as much as three minutes per part – because it relies on programable actions that reduce operator interface. Critical information like serial numbers and Item Unique Identifier Data (IUID) labels can be created with consistency throughout the production of all parts and components. This speeds up cycle time and improves productivity.

Beamer has a CAGE (Commercial and Government Entity) code – assigned by DoD for bidding on defense projects. We also understand the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations) standards and how they relate to MIL-SPECs. Tier 2 and 3 suppliers, and even Tier 1 suppliers don’t have to be experts in the application of these regulations and standards when it comes to their parts marking. Another important reason for precision marking may be overlooked. Decorative marking and marking that promotes brand identity is also extremely important to firearms manufacturers, especially in the sporting market. Logos and the manufacturer’s name establish brand identity, while customized decorative markings enhance the aesthetics and uniqueness of the products, making them more attractive to customers. In addition to all the technical knowledge we offer, we can provide that kind of expertise as well – along with the best American-made laser marking solutions in the industry.


Beamer engineering and expertise provides firearms makers with turnkey solutions for a wide range of metals, with user-friendly Standalone Solutions, custom Engineered Solutions, and Inline Solutions.
All while providing the highest value investment with quality laser etching of all necessary firearms components including frames and receivers. As a defense contractor, we are SAM registered, Cage Code 87UZ0.
