    My First Shot at Stippling

    123
    This is the first gun I've stippled. I practiced on a couple of grips this weekend, but that's it. Any constructive criticism would be appreciated. If you're going to tell me it looks like a bag of ass, please explain the reason. Thanks!

    Looks like a bag of ass... because I said so.



    Just kidding, looks good. I'm going to work on some stripping on my Pmags when I get some free time.

    How long did that take you? I know it's tedious and time consuming.

    Looks fine. Just know that the value of your gun has changed as beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    It's really about function than beauty... getting a more aggressive grip is important, even if resale value takes a hit.

    Maybe an hour and a half, if you include the time I took to sand it down.

    I only mentioned this because on a local GA gun forum a fella recently listed his stippled Glock and couldn't understand why no offers came in...

    Looks good! I'm assuming that's a soldering iron stipple, not a Dremel one.

    I did some work on a grip for a friend. A little reshaping and stippling. What do you guys think of this one?
