    Hey guys,

    Just finished this one up for a guy on another forum.

    It's very 'grippy'. I think this stippling stuff helps more on these little guns than on the full-size ones..

    Any critiques welcome :)

    Nice looking work Tim. And you're probably right that the stippling might be better suited for the smaller LCP. I have a SR9c and actually like the feel of the frame; really wouldn't want to change it to a stippled surface.

    Hard to ''critique'', you did such a beautiful job. That said, If it were mine, I'd have left the mag alone, but that grip is saweet! What tools did you use?

    I saw a full sized SR9 at a local pawn shop that someone stippled. You did a better job by far.

    I usually cringe when I see DIY stippling. But that, sir, is a first rate job! Nicely done!

    Looks like it came that way from the factory. Nice!

    IIRC you posted pics of another gun you did recently and even added a video on how you used a flat bladed soldering iron, Is this you im referring too?
    I think so as the work looks just as good as on the gun i saw that day. For me to say that says alot as i think 95% of the stippling jobs ive seen look crappy.

    This one had to be even harder as such a small gun the stippling had to be finer or the guns size would make it look worse. I like it alot.

    You mean thats not factory :) Another fine job Smitty. Complaints/critiques, how could one do so with a job like that. Oh yeah, you forgot the mag release :)

    Gorgeous - and this is from a guy who has never really been a proponent of stippling.
