That has to be the absolute worst carving and soldering iron job I have ever seen on any Glock EVER. SJ 40

The only thing that would make me prouder would be to see that someone from Florida also buys it at that price.

Yeah, horrible. I have nothing against a good retexture/stipple, but that is just...horrendous.

It is listed as:

Item Condition: Factory New

Uhh, not anymore it ain't!

What a mess.

I was on Amazon the other night buying some batteries and books. One of the books was a pretty common paperback my daughter was looking for. Used price was a couple of bucks but somone had listed a new copy for $1600+. I guess there really is one born every minute.

Not only is it a crazy expensive stipple job, but the trigger guard looks like it would snap in half if you squeeze too hard.

Yea, I thought that as well. That trigger guard is super thin.

My only gripe with that stipple job is that it is only a partial.
He should have invested a little more time and stippled every square millimeter of plastic. Dust cover, inside the trigger guard, hell even the trigger itself. Now that would show some commitment.

I just sent the seller this message...


I wouldn't pay the price of a new Glock for that.

Stippling plastic with a soldering iron does not add value to the gun. Hopefully, nobody is stupid enough to get ripped off like that. Wow

I can't stand sellers trying to rip people off on Gunbroker.

Matt K. must be at the top of his game to demand that kind of cash for his work.

I don't care for stippling (I know some do) and I certainly don't like cutting the trigger guard to paper thin dimensions.

When you look at the profile of a Glock frame, it appears to me that the trigger guard is an integral part of the reinforcement of the right angle formed by the rail portion and the butt portion of the gun.

To me that looks like a severe reduction in the frame strength while in search for a "special" look.

Not what I would buy.

I agree.

I honestly wouldn't pay $300 for that the more I look at it.

The funny part is that he wants $900 for that abomination.

I wonder whether he will email me back or not. I'm curious as to his response, because that's totally ridiculous.
