Quasi H8TR thread

I have been mulling this over for a while and would like some input from you guys and gals

I have been debating whether on not to buy a wheel stamp for numbering the H8TR's. The receivers will be stamped with a serial number but what about the barrel mount, barrel adaptor and adaptor body? If I stamped them all with the same number, then there would be a complete match. Would this increase the resale value because you would be selling a matching number H8TR.

Let me know what you think

Dave

I think the people purchasing your first run would greatly appreciate being able to confirm their claims with proof far into the future, so i say hell yeah, stamp away!
Just make sure that where you decide to stamp the pieces doesn't take away from the overall beauty...

My SKS has a bayonet. Can I get one for my H8TR as well?

I'm not too concerned about the stamping.

If you want to, go for it! If it's too much more for you to do, then it's no biggie for me.

I have to number the receivers anyway and it isn't much to stamp the other parts. One wack of the hammer and it is stamped

I didn't order a H8TR, but as a collector of fine paintball guns, I think its a wonderful idea. One more step toward making markers as worthy a collectible as firearms.

Thinking on a similar line, that will also help with total recovery if one were to get stolen at any point.

Yeah, I may have to do these by hand. Just got a quote for the stamper and it was like $1500. I think they are smok'n crack. I have a couple of tool catalogs where I can get them for under 500.
