I took the dive. I have mostly finished the work on my new g23 and here is where it sits. - rounded trigger guard - ground underneath the trigger guard for my finger to sit higher - grounded down the safety so when it's pressed it is flush with the trigger - lightly polished a couple of the trigger parts (much smoother than my other glock now) For the grip: - removed finger grooves - heated and pressed back or grip - epoxy in the gap for strength and shaved down the back but not into the epoxy so it could receive the stippling - stippling Parts of the finish need a little help. Any tips on how to make the finish look good on the parts I don't want to do stippling? Smooth is fine, didn't have any really fine sand paper, so that remains, but any feed back is appreciated? Also the bottom hole that was filled with epoxy (the grey) - any options for painting or how can I work with that part? Thanks guys.
