Customization is a popular medium for gun owners. Laser engraving may be the pinnacle of customization. Based just outside of Atlanta, Ga., American Engraver specializes in laser engraving, specifically for firearms. The company recently released a video on its Instagram of a custom job on a Glock 19X (G19X) pistol.

Laser-Engraved G19X Pistol

The Glock 19X has proven pretty popular in its first few months of being release. Concealed carriers have flocked to the new pistol. No shock there. The shorter barrel makes for a really nice pistol — perhaps one of Glock’s best. But there’s also already been some secondhand upgrades we’ve seen across the Internet. This laser-engraved job from American Engraver certainly fits the bill.

American Engraver’s previous jobs include a lot of slide and receiver work, but the G19X owner opted for a grip job. Described as the “Ghost Recon Skull,” the laser engraving imprints a fairly detailed skull over the already stippled Glock 19X grip.

The entire process takes approximately 12 seconds. God bless modern technology … especially at it relates to guns. The finished product is as clean as it gets. Some people don’t like customization like this, but this looks pretty sweet to us. Watch it all happen in the video below. For even more info, please visit
