I used sandpaper 100,220 and a 400 grit wet sand and some elbow grease.I did it by hand I was afraid to use a dremel since I have never used one before.It took about 45 mins,I know it's not a real custom job but the difference in the feel for me is night and day.Thanks for all your ideas guys.

Looks pretty durn nice to me. You can always stipple the frontstrap later if you want a bit more 'grip'.

Yes sir your plastic toy looks real nice , now if it were a 1911 all you would have to do is remove four screws and swap the grips to what you want including any of several number of attractive wood grips that you can't put on your plastic junk LOL .

Hope you really love that thing because any smart buyer will use that permanent alteration as a reason to not give you what it's worth should you ever have to sell it .

Variety is the spice of life, and like most guns, the buyer is sold on name and the unique feel of the grip..

So, up the road, if the OP decides to sell her, I can imagine the right person paying the right price, for a type gun with a unique grip that brings this face on.. :)

Skillful customizing work, permanent or not, does not guarantee a decrease in value of a firearm, at least in terms of something like a Glock, for which there are roughly 6 billion other guns from which to choose. Case in point is professional stippling. It certainly doesn't decrease the value of the gun to have it stippled and Robarized. It really is just a matter of how the job looks. If it's a bubba job, your screwed for resale value. If it's done well, your probably OK. As a matter of fact, a smart buyer would probably be willing to pay a premium for well done customization.

You could also sell it as custom. It depends on how you sell it and the buyers ability to believe it.

I did mine with a peice of a wore out 120 grit sanding belt from work. First thing I did when I got it home. Turned out all right. Looked like crap, but the grooves were gone.

I stippled the whole grip a while later with a soldering iron, and than again with a woodburning pen. Kinda lookes like crap IMO, but glocks are far from pretty so I dont really care. Since I bought it NIB with the intention of using it as a beater I care even less.
