    I always thought the only thing that kept my G36 from perfection was the trigger guard. I had been wanting to do a undercut on it but honestly was afraid I would mess it up. After watching numerous YouTube videos I decided I was going to do it.
    I went out to the shed hooked up the dremel and to my disgust didn't have any fine sandpaper to finish it with. So I just used a polishing tip. Anyway, I messed with it less than 10 minutes betweent the course sandpaper and the polish tip and this is what I have. It feels great as opposed to the way it did. I think it turned out good for my first time. What do you more experienced guys think and recommend doing different?

    If it works for you, that’s all that matters. Personally, I round off the outer edges and any other sharp corners.

    Well like I said it is my first time. I was nervous I would mess it up. I am getting more brave and will do more when I have the time

    Looks like a nice job from here.
    Remember - a little at a time. What comes off can't easily be put back on.

    Whatever works for you. As long as you're happy with the end result, that's all that matters.

    Looks very nice. I finish mine off either with fine sandpaper or a nail file. Works for me.

    Thanks guys. I am getting more brave. I have done a support hand cut now and after some debate with myself also did the gas port thumbrest cuts. I am waiting on some fine sandpaper to finish those out but they feel awesome. They really give your support hand a place to put your thumb. Almost like the gun is melting into my hand if that don't sound too corny.
    I also had a guy put in a flat face Apex trigger on it (I was feeling lazy and the place I bought the trigger said they would do it for free LOL) I have a plus one magazine extension coming and have a +10% mag spring waiting on it. I will also end up putting a bike tube grip on it just to make the grip a little bigger. Here is a new pic

    Here is a better look at those gas port cuts so far. You can see a little of the ledge for your thumb it creates.
