    Trying new stuff

    Hello all.

    I picked up a Desert Eagle 1911C recently, and I'm gearing up to do some gunsmithing work.



    I have alot of things planned for the pistol, but one thing in particular I'd like to do is install a bobtail (which I've done before) and stipple the bottom of it, like this:


    My question is: do I need to heat the MSH before I try to stipple it? Or do I work on it cold?

    Thanks for your help!

    - Nate

    Cold.The only time you want to take heat to one is to loosen locktite,silver solder or weld.
