    My uncle is the local gun-smith. There is no such law about dipping guns. You got some bogus info.

    Correct, there is no law about dipping guns. You are not allowed to keep the receiver overnight unless you are an FFL, though. Everything else(barrel/grips/handguards/magazines) is just parts.

    That's odd. So you can let somebody "borrow" your entire gun for as long as you want (if they aren't a felon)...but you can't let someone have it overnight if you are paying them for something? Gotta love nonsense laws.

    Are you just using this home kit, or have you bought the equipment to do this as a business? I have really looked into doing this, but I think if you want to do it for real you need a spray booth because you have to prime and clear everything you do.

    We started with their kits and then switched over to buying the bulk supplies from them (they sell all the parts individually)

    I know this is really old, but I do not want to see somebody get caught in a pickle over something they read on the net that was wrong. But here is what the ATF has to say about those that dip gun parts:

    Here are the ATF rulings:

    18 U.S.C. 921(a): DEFINITIONS
    18 U.S.C. 922(a)(I)(A): LICENSES REQUIRED
    18 U.S.C. 923(a): LICENSES REQUIRED
    27 CFR 478.11: DEFINITIONS
    27 CFR 478.41(a): LICENSES REQUIRED
    Any person who engages in an activity or process that primarily adds to or changes
    a firearm's appearance, by camouflaging a firearm by painting, dipping
    , or applying tape,
    or by engraving the external surface of a firearm, does not need to be licensed as a
    manufacturer under the Gun Control Act. Any person who is licensed as a
    dealer/gunsmith, and who camouflages or engraves firearms as described in this ruling
    does not need to be licensed as a manufacturer under the Gun Control Act. Any person
    who is engaged in the business of camouflaging or engraving firearms as described in this
    ruling must be licensed as a dealer, which includes a gunsmith, under the Gun Control
    Act.

    Useful info... Thanks. Aside from dipping guns, I see a big market in dipping automotive parts and taxidermy type things (deer skulls, horns, etc...)

    I also found this site which offer similar camo dipping kits, but in brand name camo patterns like Realtree, Mossy Oak, and Muddy Girl: www.camoDIY.com

    Hydrographic printing

    Good news Sightline the process is finally here in 2015, I've been printing custom hydrographics for the last six months, and it's been a blast! But I agree with you about the the actual dipping process, it's way too much work and hassle for me to do anything other than print the stuff.

    So you don't have to be licensed as a "MANUFACTURER" but you DO have to be licensed as a "DEALER" but only if you are in the "BUSINESS OF" camouflaging or engraving...

    Looks like you can do your own all day long as a hobby with no licensing whatsoever.

    You would be required to obtain a Type01 Federal Firearms License to receive a firearm from an individual, perform work on it (they have left the building by this point), and return it to them at a later time.

    If a customer drops off a gun with you to perform work and comes back another time to get it then you need an FFL. However, If a customer brings a gun to you and stands there while you are working on it you do not need an FFL. The difference being who has possession, and you only need licesensed to have possession of guns that aren't yours.
