That's great work. Would love to know how you do your boarders. It's one of those things that continues to escape me. I have a theory how some of the pros do theirs but it'd require investing in equipment beyond soldering/wood burning tools that I don't presently have. If you'd be willing to share I'd very much would love to know.

To the guys who are getting a texture like this are yall just using a really fine tip on your iron? I love the way this looks and have a G22 that I have coming in that may get chopped and stippled.

Can these tips be used on the tool at the bottom?

Which tip and technique did you use? .  I've been stippling my pmags and magpul furniture with a standard tip.  I have a fine tip,  I like the look of and I don't need the traction on my PPS.  I was going to go with the fine tip,  but I like the bark look on your PPS job.  Great pics too.

For those that CCW these pistols, how does the stippling do contacting your shirt / body?

I personally think that everything other than the bark stippling is to aggressive for ccw, I tried the sun burst look on an ar pistol grip, tucked it into my belt to see how it felt and could tell immediately that it was too much.

Use a flat tip and practice on a p-mag or something first, it took me about an hour to figure out a good technique for the bark look.

A few glitches, but not horrible.

Just read through the whole thread, and have been doing some practice stippling on pmags and AR grips with pretty decent success. About to tackle my G19, but have a question on the undercut of the trigger guard.

Seems like most people are using a dremel for this, but are you using the dremel to give you the actual shape of the undercut or just to make removing the material easier/quicker? Seems like the sanding drums I have for mine are too small in diameter go make the entire undercut. Also, what speed on the dremel, slow or a little higher? Thanks in advance.

So I stippled a few pmags and finally decided to do my shield, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get those clean recessed edges and its killing me. Is it a Dremel? I practiced using the iron on some other plastic but can't get a clean, uniform line. I used a file on mine and ain't happy with my edge, someone be cool and tell me your secrets, lol. Here are some pictures of mine...

I am a fan of magpull grips for their compartment, but I have extra large hands.

What I like to do to add some size to the grips is give it an aggressive stipple job then hit it with multiple coats of spray on truck bed liner. It adds further texture while toning down the roughness/sharpness of the grip while adding just enough mass to fill my hand a bit better. If you vary the aggressiveness of the stippling you can adjust the palm swell and reach of the grip.

Have you ever tried a LT APEG grip? They don't have the storage compartment like you prefer, but they're very hand-filling.

I know this thread is a few months old but dont care, wanted to share what you can do to some noveske nsr panels in ~90 minutes with a 20 year old $3 iron:

I REGRET NOTHING, ITS AWESOME. Contrary to popular belief it really doesn't tear up your hands at all. Its like very mild sandpaper.

Ha I was bored over the weekend and stippled some PMags. Will post some pics later

I really like this method.  Which tip are you using?

FYI, if you mess something up or want to re-do a section, the copper spade looking bit in the pic is the easiest and fastest way to smooth down and press out the old stippling for a fresh slate without sanding or removing polymer.  I smoothed out a hideous stippling job of the PO and redid the whole Glock in an hour or so and it turned out beautiful.

Quick question. I'm starting fresh with a gen 3 glock 19 frame. Should I sand off the factory texture before starting to stipple?

Not a lot of information exchange here. It's like look at what I did, cya..  You don't need to remove the original finish you can just stipple over it. I came here to see which tip to use for the bark technique.

What if you took fine sandpaper to it after stippling?  Would that keep the grippiness while eliminating the roughness that might tear up clothes?

Is there a temperature that works best for this?

Was thinking about this guy but it doesn't list the wattage.

Whatever temp soldering irons run at. That's all I've ever used, but I'm no pro.
