Laser etched sight covers.

Had an opportunity to install an etched spring cover on one of my 7.62 M1s. Sure makes ID easier when grabbing a rifle out of a safe. Works for me.

Those really look great, Art!

Are those custom done for you or off the shelf units, available from a supplier?

Got me thinking about having some parts engraved now . . .

Custom.
I supply the spring covers and a friend works with me to set the artwork up where I want it.
Picking some up today with the logos from each of the military services and ordering another bunch of 7.62mm NATO. They make great gifts.

Very nice. My M1s have been exclusively 7.62, and that's a nice touch
