BAT-GLOCK!

I under-cut the the trigger, rounded off the trigger-guard and took off factory texture (and sort of accidentally reshaped the grip, but I like it). What do you think?

There's a lot of melting of the polymer frame.
Be careful not to compromise the integrity of the frame.
Not sure , but me thinks when you raise the grip texture, the material has to be coming from someplace, which may create thin spots. Are you adding polymer material ?

Not my cup-o-tea, but well-executed, methinks.

I agree, get the slide cover plate to match.

Or maybe one with "BW" or "Bruce Wayne" etched on it...

you really don't go that deep to get the texture you want. you barely go half as deep as it looks. The first thing I practiced on was a Magpul MOE grip and I went way to deep it looked bad and would not have been structurally good for a pistol however magpul grips are quite thick so I think that thing is just fine although ugly.

the biggest concern I have with what I have done would be the under cut of the trigger (which feels awesome). that is were any material is really taken out. I tried to stay a little thicker than the most extreme undercut jobs I could find from people that have a reputation for doing good work.

It is different. But, in my not so humble opinion, it is very well done. You do indeed have some artistic skills.:mrgreen:

Okay, Holly did the resurrection, not I, lol!

But I too have to admit that is pretty neat. Not sure if I would do that on my gun or not, but that's still cool. :)

I have a former Navy friend who is an absolute Transformer's nut... Should see if I can gift him something like that with a Transformer or Decepticon emblem on it!
