Laser etching a Glock

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by GruntDoc, Jan 24, 2014.


  1. I posted some pictures of the final results in the Glock Porn thread ( http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20950286&postcount=4940 ) but just got the videos uploaded and wanted to share those. This technology offers so many possibilities in customization, it will be interesting to see how the custom gun industry adopts it.

    This would make stippling a thing of the past. You could use any design, any repeating pattern, and have it transferred to the surface in short order. Imagine reducing the Glock logo to 1/4" and repeating row upon row to create a textured surface on the entire grip. Some cool possibilities. Thanks for posting this.

    Can it do a pattern in Walnut? I have a revolver grip with slippery front and back straps.
     
  6. Absolutely. They do some awesome looking work on wood. I've seen some wooden rifle and shotgun stocks with amazingly intricate images.
     
  7. Exactly. And you control the depth of the cut by the darkness of the image, so an image of white, black, and multiple shades of gray would have give an etching of multiple depths. For instance a circle with a black outer edge which gets increasingly lighter towards the center would end up as a pointy cone on the polymer. If you make an image of hundreds of tiny versions of that you'd have a very grippy surface. And one that you can load up in an instant.
     
  8. Can the etching on the slide be un-done?
    Can it be filled in and refinished to make it look like it's not there?

    The reason why I ask is because I have a laser etched slide that needs cleaned up.
     
  9. I'm sure you can fill it in with some type of epoxy, maybe devcon or something similar, and put a coating over it like duracoat or cerakote. But I'm not sure about refinishing with something like tenifer, because I don't really know how well it bonds to surfaces besides metal.
