    Hey guys,

    Sorry, as I'm sure you've already seen these on all the other boards I visit.

    (I'm a gun board whore. :D)

    Here is a fellow's G23 that I did this week.

    I left the Glock logo on this one.(unlike my last one) This particular fellow likes the finger grooves on his guns.

    Any other input is welcome guys! If y'all see something that I can improve on, let me know.

    Is it really that practical ... I mean, I can feel my back bleed already from contemplating to carry that thing.

    How does it do when carried concealed? Does it catch the cover garment?

    All it needs now is an internal magwell.

    I've never had mine slip out of my hand, so I'll just keep it the way it was made. ;)

    If one must do that to a Glock ;), that is a good job. :) It has an overall even appearance, with well defined and even borders. Sadly, I fear I would not be able to do it. :eek:

    If I had to do that, my next project would be weaving baskets in a padded room.

    If you wear an undershirt, even IWB carry should not abrade your skin. And while it would no doubt give some extra grip in your hand, it does not look nearly as aggressive as the RTF-2.

    Beatiful job man ! I remember seeing the last one you did. So you asked for constructive criticism, I think i would keep it straight at the top rear of the grip/beavertail area rather than sweep up like you did. One nice clean straight line all the way around. Ya dig. By no means am I saying I could do it, just my thought as far as the aesthetics go. Once again though , beatiful job man. Time frame start-finish?

    Looks good. It photographed odd. It almost screamed "Photoshopped!" with the first 2 pictures.

    Not for me, but I will say it's one of the better looking stipple jobs I've seen!

    Very clean and precise..nicely done!

    I think I'll have to buy a soldering iron and play around on a Pmag and then my Hi Point. If it all goes well, MAYBE I'll make a run at the XD or my P11. We'll see.:scrutiny:

    You did an exellent job, I just would have to shoot it before doing it to one of mine. I use the Talon grip tape, ala hickock 45, he is my go to glock god. I think the man was fathered by Gaston himself. Check out his Glock videos on Utube. He is amazing for a 6'8'' old guy. At least everything he shoots is downhill

    Wow, it's probably just me, but I get the eeriest feeling looking at that texture. It looks organic... alive almost. Like the grip is formed from a shoggoth or something (obscure sci-fi reference). I'd be afraid the glock would try to absorb my hand, lol.

    @Jaydubs: Not obscure if you read Lovecraft, and if you read Sci-Fi, you read Lovecraft :p

    I've been thinking about stippling the grip on my sigma, as the checkering feels too aggressive. (newish gun, sharp checkering)
    The Glock looks great, but I agree with P30shtr, would look better with an even line across the back instead of going up like it is.

    You do a really great job. I love how you left the GLOCK logo on the grip
