When making and registering a firearm that will become part of the National Firearms Registry you have to engrave your legal information on it.
The letters must be at least 0.0625" tall, 0.003" deep, be of a readily readable font and be placed on the serialed part of the gun where it can be seen readily with the firearm assembled.
Used to be people would engrave this information on the seam between the upper and lower receiver of an AR being registered so that it wouldn't infringe on the aesthetics. You needed to show the engraving? Pop the rear pin, open it up, show it off.
ATF decided that was not allowable.
Today I noticed where the serial number for my S&W 640-3 was located. UNDER the crane. You cannot see it until you swing out the cylinder.
I am, once again, missing the point of an ATF ruling.
That happens to me a lot.
