40 Watt iron, custom tip, now the gun feels furry from the plastic sticking up.  Shooting Wednesday night.

I thought you meant plasma pistol, 40-watt range.



Nice.   Is it more "grippy", or "tacky" than it was before?

I started out stippling the side of mine but found that I got better results be redoing the front and backstraps of the pistol.  

That said you work looks really clean man.  Might want to knock it down a bit to keep your shirt from sticking to it but it does look good.

It is more "grippy", almost feels like 220 grit sand paper.

Thanks, actually if a t-shirt will stick to it then I've achieved my objective.  This is a competition only pistol, it won't be supporting my CCW.

how did you do it so straight?

The original texture has some pretty straight lines to start with, so...



I too prefer fore/aft texturing, but it is looking good!

Not bad, kind of looks like RTF2 on the side.

I'll put up a "before" picture tonight.  The pattern looks like window screen was heated into the plastic and then lifted off of the plastic - raising tini hairs of plastic as a result of the lifting, once cooled you have a firm "furry" feel that is not as abrasive as 220 sandpaper.  Need a magnifying glass to show it or your hand to feel it.

Shot the pistol last night - Glock 20 with a SW40 barrel - nice, very nice.  The gun was always firm in my hand as in not moving around.  Very happy I did this, thinking of doing it to my CCW.
