    I decided I'd make this thread showing the process I used on my extra G19 to stipple it. In past threads I've only ever given pictures of the finished products.

    First thing I do is dremel the magwell cut outs for my super high speed mag rips (please read the sarcasm):
    STOCK:

    DONE:

    Then I do the finger grooves and back strap with an aggressive texture:

    Make the outlines on the gun where I want the stippling done:

    Looks great! What kind of equipment are you using to do it?

    Nice, but you did not do the most important parts: get rid of the finger grooves and flatten out the hump!

    Enjoy your gun and don't let the "don't modify perfection" guys get you down. I have ground on, sanded on, and stippled most of my Glocks, and love 'em all.

    That's actually a pretty damn good job. Clean and consistent. There are a few blurps, but for the most part it's good. I've seen other peoples' jobs that were considered "nice" or "good" but apparently people were just trying to be nice to them...

    I'm definitely not a fan of stippling, but I will say you've done a good job compared to most of the others I've seen.

    Thank you very much gentlemen.

    inebriated,
    Walmart $8 soldering iron. Fine tip.

    humphreys,
    I'm one of those freaks that loves the finger grooves and the grip angle works for me lol.

    I did the slash method on my Steyr. (I didn't care for the crater look) My Glock will be up next. Only took about 30 min. to knock this out. Made a big difference on the 1st gen Steyr since it had no factory texturing at all.

    Very nice, I have never been a fan of the crater look either. Care to expound on your slash method- Any tips. LOOKS GOOD! Reminds me of a more aggresive stock Glock texture


    ****** As always- Nice work GENIN!!!!!!!

    Genin, when I began viewing the pics, I had my doubts. I was wrong. Very clean job. I agree with the "critics" about the "crater look" (that is however what I employ), but yours is very uniform. Good stuff.

    slash method = hold fine tip iron at about 45 deg and tap and drag (kinda like making a real short incision with a scalpel)- spread the slashes out and do about 1/3 of the target area and rotate 120 deg, repeat and then repeat again - this ensures all your little slashes are going in random directions

    it actually looks like a rougher version of a Smith M&P

    I'll admit, it looks NICE - I've got no problem working on my guns, swapping parts here and there, or taking trigger group out, but I'm not entirely sure I'd trust myself quite yet to do that.... I def like what you did, beats getting a hogue grip or decal grips that can come off - any tips. Only parts I'd want done are the side panels on the grip, the bottom of the trigger guard all the way to the frontstrap of the grip, and MAYBE the smooth area at the top of the backstrap where the webbing of your hand would be.

    Like I said - GREAT JOB
