Decided I liked my gen 4 g30 enough to go ahead and get rid of the grip tape. Probably finish the magazine in a bit once the hand gets some rest.

Also used the heat method to shrink the hump a little.

Care to give me some tips vandros on how you did yours? I'd love to do the same to my 27 and yours looks perfect. Soldering iron? Tip size? Technique? Would you be willing to do mine?? Thanks!

I used the cheapest soldering iron I could find. Just takes lots of concentration and lots of breaks to let wrists and eyes rest. No special tricks/tips. I did draw contour lines with a sharp nail on the top - if that qualifies as a tip. Good luck!

I must be blind. I think vandros' gun looks like hell.

Just my opinion.

People are looking for tips on how to recreate that!?!?


Good ****ing lord.

I frankly don't understand this either... But, as I said before, to me function comes first -- form distant second. And by this criterion, my stippling project was extremely successful.

my hands tend to sweat quite a bit, and more traction / grip on a handgun is more important to me than anything with respect to its looks. the texture that vandros did, to my eyes, looks supremely functional as it seems to vastly increase the available surface are and pressure points that would let sweat get into the grooves, increase surface contact with hand and provide very small pressure areas that increase the friction between the gun and the hand. beautiful in my eyes.

I wouldn't get too proud of your inability to walk a bit in someone else's shoes, it'll make your mind more limited.

Nice, I like the pattern. What type of tool/stamp did you use? Thanks

Just used a fine point tip wood burner at a 45* to not go in deep and a lot of time. Kind looks like lava rock in person. Tons of grip if you hit all the right areas

I have read of people practicing on Tupper ware or the old square Glock boxes.

A well done job like CBC does, will add value in my opinion!
Terrible jobs, for sure will lower the resale value!

Hey... Um ... "Cat"

Why not just keep running that think tank of yours

What in the name of God does walking in someone else's shoes have to do with my posts about that stipple job looking like a sack of pig feces!

.. Wow.... Ok.... Thanks? For that tip

That just because something like stippiling doesn't fit into what you think is a good idea there could be someone else who finds it a great thing.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. But why pee on someone's parade when you don't have to? If you can't imagine why someone would do such a thing, why not just ask and maybe learn something you didn't know before?

Sometimes it's just best to keep your opinion to yourself.

A gun with a better grip is better than a gun that slips in your hand. I think people doing what's best for them is what it's all about. I don't really see the need for public insults. If you don't like it just say that it's not for you and leave it at that. Just my opinion.

Sorry guys.. This is a public forum... when you post up things here you are ripe to get a bevy of responses from positive to negative.

We all have been there and done that... I have experienced myself by the way..

So if you only want posive supportive warm and fuzzy feedback, please show things to your family members and friends only.

If you want to post things up on the internet you must be prepared for all kinds of responses.

And for the record.. I dont have a problem with stippling per se... some of it looks great... Im one of those people who like my guns to look presentable..

Some pro work done looks great.. Others not so much.. again each to his own
