You perform the stipple, then sand the texture down so it's exactly to the grit that you prefer
. No manufacturer can give you a grip that fits you that good. It's like a boxer's mouth piece. Sure it works out of the box, but better when fitted. I use my glock 26 for CCW and IDPA. I use talon grips at the moment, but it likes to grap my cover garment and break concealment. A grip stipple I can achieve the perfect balance of grip texture, while it still allowing my cover garment to work with my weapon, not against it.

Then I'd feel bad about poking my 1k gun with a soldering iron. At least the fumes would be less toxic because it's more expensive.
Plus, HK's aren't exactly the pinnacle of grip texture either. Most firearms companies tend to err on the side of the average consumer. I live in the desert, grip texture is essential, because anything next to your body gets wet. Trying to hold a wet gun through recoil and still put all rounds on target is ridiculous.
