    OK guys,

    Here is my latest attempt at greatness..

    It's a Glock 22. I didn't carry the texture up under the beavertail like I did with my XDm.

    Also tried stippling the mag release on this one.

    All in all, I'm satisfied. Less 'snaggy' (to clothing) than the sandpaper grips, but more aggressive than the factory 'bumps'.

    Feedback is welcome

    Looks good! Especially the edges, clean lines. I bet that required a enormous amount of patience.

    How long did it take?

    That looks nice and stippling looks very uniform. Good job. Reminds me of Wendell Tactical's work, but I’m not sure they’re in business anymore.

    I'm impressed because that is something I could never, ever do. It looks like it requires patience, mechanical-type ability, and precision work. I have none of these qualities.

    However, it kind of looks like a sponge or something, so I'd have to feel it to say I like it or not. I'm good with the stock Glock texture, but I'd sure put a few hundred rounds through yours if you get to the DFW area :).

    Overall, I'd say very nice work. Oh, I have no idea what the h*** that hammer looking thing is other than some form of hammer looking thing. Did you have to use that thing to make those sponge dimples? If so, I would have gone stark-raving mad about strike 3 and sent both pistol and hammer-looking-thing out the frickin window!

    Overall, I'd say I'm more of a buyer than a creator!!!

    I would have gone insane before I got half way down one side of the grips.

    Nice job, WAY beyond my patience level though.

    Great job on the precision and lines

    I'm also curious what material you used for this?

    Thanks guys!

    I use a soldering iron with a tip I modified for this purpose.

    It usually takes about 4-4.5 hrs for a fullsize like this one. A little less for a compact etc....

    DFW,

    That is a gunsmithing hammer made by a guy named Randy Schue.

    walkabout,

    I am actually doing this for people locally, if you happen to be anywhere near Birmingham / Montgomery....

    Smitty,

    You have some talent, my friend, and thanks for the answer on the hammer.

    The lines are so clean it looks factory. Maybe better than some factories.

    Very well done indeed.
