Another nice gen 2. I really want one

New Project Completed... Very difficult to accomplish this texture on FDE without any discoloration/blackening of material. Not easy... and time consuming. The result though is not disappointing. Wish I had the full handgun to show but all I am sent are the frames for stippling.

Little Ruger LCP .380 just finished with much needed additional grip. Has a dual texture in just the right spots. Pistol was very slick and the factory checkering was weak to say the least. Stippling will help with wet or sweaty hands and with drawing from coat pocket. I like that the texture will grab skin well without hanging up on fabric.

Nice Springfield XD 45 I stippled as well... a carry gun for someone. So it has a good texture all around on the key spots where you need it and some extra aggressive texture on the frontstrap where you can really dig in. Much better control without hanging up on a shirt or holster... and it looks awesome!

Guys modify a wood burner tip
Link Posted: 2/5/2014 12:10:23 AM EDT

The tip I use is a modified soldering tip. It has to be checkered by hand and requires very specific, expensive hand tools to do it. It is not easy and took me two tries to get the tip right. The technique for using the checkered tip is also very hard to master. And it is not faster to use for stippling. I have to keep it cleaned out and wiped off for best results. Compared to the other stippling I do it is more difficult in every way. But it does give a texture with an aggressive grip that will last a long time.

AFG I did for my pistol build. I tried something different on this, I wanted a very aggressive texture... It's got some bite to it!

Here's a buddy's 9L I just stippled for him last night - I'll be giving my 9L the same treatment shortly...

Strippling was done with a Colwood Detailer with the B1 tip.

nice work everyone !


I would like to stipple my plastic shotgun stock where the checkering is.

Do I have to sand off the checkering or can I just go over it?

I just finished work on my G19. I've been holding off doing any work to it for a few months but I finally got tired of having a permanent blister on my middle finger so I decided to go ahead and do everything at the same time. I removed the finger bumps, undercut the trigger guard, and stippled all around. I sanded the frame smooth of all the factory texturing to provide a smooth surface to stipple, and I only stippled the backstrap in the same rectangular area that comes with texture from Glock. I might stipple more area there later, but I thinks it looks nicer and seems to be plenty functional.

Thanks man.
The texturing isn't quite as uniform as I'd like on one side but I'm a perfectionist. Getting the front strap flat was also worrying me, but it ended up being pretty easy. If anyone is thinking about removing the finger humps, it isn't nearly as hard as you think it is. A dremel with a 120-150 grit sanding drum and some patience will get the job done, and you can turn out a pretty good result.

MOAR!

Here is my most recent.
My EDC G23
I used my dremel and large sanding disk to remove the ribs from the finger groves, back strap and to undercut the trigger guard. I have always like the finger groves but they feel so much better now. They fit my fingers like a latex glove.
The stippling was all done with a single tip and my wood burner.
Yesterday I sanded my G22 and will be doing it as well but I will be using some sort of design on it. I am thinking about the Cannon on the Gonzales "Come and Take it" flag. Also on my this one I blended the raised side panels so they wont be noticeable like on the above G23.







This is my last G22. You can see I didnt grind off the ribs but wished I had. What can I say....you learn with each project.

Friend bought a Glock and had me stipple the frame.  He chose the pattern and wanted to retain the finger grooves.  Here it is (with my 32 slide mounted) and my 23.

How would you go about stippling a grip with a lot of serrations such as the XDm 5.25, which has a lot of large serrations.  Would you shave it down?  Or fill it in?  I would worry that shaving it down would make the grip small and if anything I would want it a little bigger.

Thanks

Did this B5 grip tonight, just finished 'er up.  I did my M&P9L with the screw method a while back.  This one got the pointy woodburning tool treatment -- first I've done that way.

p4R4d0x  I like the shape of the stipler that you used on your 23, that is different! Loots of good ideas on this thread. I got a new woodburning kit in with some stuff I bought at an auction this past summer. I didn't know what I was going to use it for.I think it will get put to good use soon.

Since then i have run out of polymer surfaces to stipple... It is addicting
