I'm wanting a stippling job done on my Glock 23. Any recommendations on a reputable outfit?

1. buy a 60 watt wood burning tool with different shaped tips.
2. go home and plug wood burner in.
3. practice on some scrap plastic for a few minutes.
4. profit for doing it yourself. $$$$

it really is easy. my 10 year old step daughter did an STI frame for me in less than 2 hours. she was being very careful.

I'd never buy a Glock or any other pistol with a frame that'd been stippled like that. I just wouldn't find such a rough finish to be comfortable. I like t he feel of Agrip on my Glocks, and, since I carry IWB daily, wouldn't want such a rough surface abrading my nekked skin!!

I finally decided to try my hand at this on my bedside 22 gun. It was extremely easy, fun and left a nice grippy surface. I was scared to try it at first, but I figured using my 22 that stays hidden away was a good place to start.
Baffle them with Bullshit is what I always say. Also, FUGseriesFAIL! Arcoms most hated/loathed troll. Thanks to the Arfcom staff that banned this FUCKNUT! Though he will be back.

Grimm Brothers Armory does great work.
When asked what breed of dog she had written on an info sheet the clerk in question stated "When I axed him he said "I don't really knows, my dad be blind and we gots a CNI dog", so thats what I wrote down."......"CNI dog"

it's not that bad on bare skin. I carry my Glock 20 IWB for up to 16 hours a day with this same texturing. no big deal. if you want the texturing not to be so sharp, warm the side up with a heat gun a bit and rub the grip a bit with a piece of flat plastic. it'll knock the high points off for people with girlie skin.
