    So I can't say I wasn't nervous as hell lol.
    I watched a few youtube vids, bought a wood burner, did some fooling around on a pmag, and then went for it.
    First thing I did was do an under cut on the trigger guard. Next was sanding down the texture and finger bumps. The rest is history, I don't think it looks to horrible for my first attempt lol.
    It feels great in the hands!!

    If that's your first job you should be very proud. I think that looks darn nice. I sent mine out to have it done, stippling price was 165.00 you keep practicing and you will have backorders in no time.

    The most important thing is that you're happy with it and that it fits your needs. The rest is gravy. IMO that's one of the best first stipple jobs I've seen. :cheers:

    I agree that how it feels to you is what's most important, but it really does look nice!
    Great job!

    Nice work, I made the mistake of seeing this video "after" I attempts my first time. Wish I would have used some sandpaper to file down my gen 4 glock. Still looks pretty good but you can make out the the "lines" from the original. The fine stipple tool makes a big difference.

    Really nice first outing. I have been moding my gen 3 22 frame. Reduced grip going to sculpt out mag release but stippling. Just haven't had the courage just yet. Skate board tape is my friend front finger grooves and rear back strap all I need. I like sides smooth against skin. Good job!

    I think you did great. 1st attempt or not.

    This work is on my agenda for my EDC G19. Have only played with a PMag so far like you did. Not ready for prime time. I'm trying to get a border effect around the stippling that's giving me problems. Will keep at it of course.

    Thanks for sharing your efforts. Again, I think you did a great job.
