Backstraps the MTNmyMag did for me. The frame was done by me. Not too nice looking, but it gets the job done.

Large modified backstrap:



Medium cross texture (ultimate grip!):

Got bored and decided to try putting some stippling on my MOE and the thumb pad for the Scout light mount.

I tried out stippling as a form of marking/numbering my mags. Took longer to cut out the stencils than to mark it.

I suppose I will play too. I sanded off the ribs of my KAC panels and stippled them with the same soldering iron that the OP used. However, I used the tip that came installed on the iron.

Can you get some better close-up pics. Been wanting to do this on my KAC panels but haven't gotten around to it.

I tried to get some better pictures for you. I used a dremel to sand down the ribs and then used 80 and 120 grit sand paper to smooth out the panel before stippling it. Using a fine point on the soldering iron created the exact texture I was wanting.

Hot damn!

How'd you do it? Draw it on and stipple around it?

Yep, sure did. It is very time consuming and requires more patience than most people have.

I hear you. I damn near go crossed eyed and blind by the time I get done stippling a mag. Couldn't imagine trying to throw a design in there too.

Anyone know where to get replacement tips for the soldering iron?

I was using the fine tip, but after a while it starts to wear out and bend.

I love this! ...how long did it take you to do that? I just did my first grip last night and it took forever, so I can't imagine how long this took.

Tried one out on my pmag. Like the feel so I'll do the rest and maybe find the balls to do my M&P.

I liked SecretSquirell's numbering system so I copied modified it.

I honestly don't recall how long it took. I have done all of my rail covers, but I didn't do them at one time. I would venture a guess that the full length panels took at least 30 mins a piece just for the stippling.

Yep, those are colored. Dyed actually. I stumbled on it by accident when trying to make some other colors. It's hard to get a solid black with dye and you never know what color something will be until you actually dye it. It's frustrating but I got some help in the rit dye thread here. Lots of useful info.

I've read people made them from a brass screw head, where they used a dremel to make the waffle pattern.  Possibly he did that..

Tried that once, but it was with a roundhead brass screw and the results weren't what I was going for. I think a flatheaded one would work better but that's all the local hardware store had on hand.

no dremel but  used a 20 Lines-Per-Inch checkering file to checker the tip.

I wish I would've found this set when I was looking around. I like how short it is (I know, "that's what she said"), it's hard to get real fine control with a long soldering iron. Plus it has all those nice attachments.
