    Well, I was just sitting around doing nothing so I decided to go and pick up some grip tape from Lowes. Here is the result...

    I really like the feel of this. It does provide some friction, but it's not as aggressive as it looks. It has sort of a rubbery feel to it. I dig it.

    was there any special technique that you used to cut? i have a hard time cutting nice straight lines, or straight edged curves like that. always lookes a little choppy when i try somehting of that sort. maybe it is just me...

    Looks nice. I was also glad I wasn't opening up another "stippled Glock" thread that would have been for sale before long and just sat in the for sale forum for forever because not very many want a glock that has had that done to it.

    Got the material from Lowes. Just ask for the grip tape thats used for ladders and stairs. I dont remember the brand name. It only costs like 6 bucks for a whole roll

    Not really, I just traced the shape onto a piece of paper and then tranferred it to the back of the grip tape.

    I've been using skateboard deck tape just like that for years, learned it from my father when I was a kid as he trained Officers in Jersey Corrections to do it.

    You can buy diff levels of grip for skateboard deck tape.

    I use FKD SAWBLADE GRIP (skateboard replacement deck grip) It comes in a roughly 10" x 36" sheets for about 5 bucks and I usually get about 20 sets of grips out of it. Leaves no residue on the gun when removed, but stays firm. After about 500 or so rounds it tends to get gunked up, but at less than 40 cents a set, it's a cheap piece to replace and deff adds a lot of grip! Also, comes in diff colors and patterns for those of you that don't want black.

    http://www.google.com/products?q=Grip+Tape,+skateboard,+FKD&hl=en&show=dd&scoring=p


    it is a thin rubber with grit on one side and adhesive on the other. I cut a rectangle just a bit bigger than I need and put it on my glock and using a roller of sime kind press it against the gun. Then peel it off and it leaves a reverse print of the Factory texture in the back of the grip tape. Just cut around the edge of the reverse pattern and put back on the glock.

    Here are some pics of 2 of my guns with grip tape. the 1911 had it applied to where it was the most functional, not the most visually appealing!

    I've tried this and like the result as it makes the plastic grip very sticky in your hand. I just can't keep it on. I have degreased the frame numerous times and applied multiple times. It stays on from a few days to months sometimes. Then it just slides off. I used Diamond skateboard tape. Very nice at first.
