I'm sure that there are better, more cosmetically appealing ways to do it, but I simply scratched a small number on the tube itself. No one sees my mags except me, and I don't even see them when they're in the gun so this method doesn't bother me at all.
I use a Dremel tool with the small round carbide bit. I use it like a electric pencil engraver. Or take them to the mall and have it professionally engraved. You know, the one that engraves the door knockers,plaques and zippo lighters.

That mall idea isn't bad, just as long as they realize what they're dealing with!!! This ain't no key tag that they are clamping in a vice with superhuman strength, in order to engrave it. Sure would hate to see you with some flattened tubes that have real pretty engraving on them
I've got to echo BillD on this one.Several years ago I was told by a friend to mark My mags. with an electric pencil.Not only does it help identify a troublesome mag. but also lets You keep track of who's mag. is who's when getting ready to leave the range.similarly we all mark our brass with different color magic markers so We don't get someone elses brass.tom.
use a plastic labeler, stick it on the bottom of the mag, seen some people use computor generated paper labels, small marker on or near the base of the mag would work too and isnt as permanent as a dremel tool. in case you want to change the number or sell the mags
Caspian frame + Colt parts = Col-spian? or Cas-olt?
At the area 6,and at most major matches a guy has a laser engraving machine that is run by some advanced software.$20 buys an engraved slide.A couple bucks a mag and it's perfect.Whatever font you like the options are as limited as the artwork in a print shops type software.
