Default Glock 9mm with custom skulls?

Hope you guys can help me out, I was at my local gun shop yesterday and they had for sale a Glock 9mm with the frame done up in black and white skulls. I asked about it and they just told me a company does it for them. Does anyone know how they do it or who is doing it? He told me I can only buy the gun like that and they will not send your current gun out to have it done. id like to have all my handguns done something like that. thanks for any help or advice.

I purchased a Glock 22 from Cabelas a few months ago that had a carbon fiber finish on it.

They counter man a Cabelas told me that glock does that to some of the refurbished units to aid in the selling of them, it also came with and accessory kit which was a holster and mag holster. They had a gen two model 17 there also that had $100 dollar bills on it but it definitely had the ghey

That's some expensive personalization. Are all this expensive?

it might also be that, i forget what it is exactly called, but its like hydropainting or hydro coating...something like that. but its a really cool process where they basically leave a paint film on the surface of a bucket of water and dip in the part to get the coating. they is all sorts of camo patterns or skulls, snake skin patterns etc...I was thinking about getting my px4 done in the white digital camo.

I believe that process is called hydrodipping. In a basic sense, they have a sheet that lays on top of the water in a tank, disolves into a film, then adheres to whatever is dunked into the tank. I am oversimplifying of course, but it is a very neat process... Very popular in paintball as an alternative to annodizing. Hydrodipping or hydrographing is a fairly durable process and as was already mentioned, has potential to provide the consumer many options for customizing. As far as laser engraving, look up paintball customizing. I would wager that many of the companies who do the custom laser work on paintball guns would also do it on slides and trigger frames...
