Some of swervin's work. Those ghost flames are a work of art.

I would recommend getting some of teh skateboard grip tape,and see how you like teh added traction. You can also play with the tape and try figuring out where you want texture and where you want to leave things smooth. Then get a standard AR pistol grip and practice your stippling on it witha soldering iron or and iron from a wood burning kit. The wood burning kits offer many different tips that can help in gettng the texture that you like.

Once you figure out what texture you want, and where you want it, and you have practiced a bit on something cheap, then you can get your Glock out and go to town. I kind of outlined boundaries with the first pass, and then would fill in the areas of the grip.

I stipple M&P grips, mag releases, frame tools, basepads, and the striker plate. I wanted to stipple things I could replace...rather than frames. This way - if I wanted to sell the guns, I could put factory items back on.

I tried 10 different patterns on extra parts before I settled into what I liked. I use a wood-burning tool and a couple different tips which come with the tool. If you do try this, make sure you have adequate ventilation and wear a ventilator. I wore a surgical mask for the first year...that was the wrong answer.

Here are a couple of my products. Remember, every frame, every part will stipple differently. I cannot stipple PMAGs - they look like crap after I try. The plastic is much harder than the softer parts of a M&P. Just my experience.

That's some cool stippling. I've never seen anyone do it like that. Very stylish.

this was my first attempt on a firearm with minimal initial practice. It's not to difficult to do....just take your time
