Thought I would give it a try on a standard grip, had I done this before I bought my magpul grips I could have lived with this, I really like the feel of the texture . Whipped these out in about 10 mintues

I knocked the diamonds off the stock grip with a dremel sanding drum then
I used a soldering iron because Im an electronics dummy , but its really too long and gets hot holding it up all the time , This is what I suggest
http://www.harborfreight.com/5-in-1-hobby-woodburner-38593.html
and it comes with a few different tips for different patterns , was really really easy , I did my outside lines and then stated doing squares in about 1/2" X 1/2" going in a circle until the circle was full and then did another area . The longer it sits the deeper it gets , these were literally just dab dab dab dab dab on it and thats what I got , Killer grip , almost like 120 grit sand paper

Looks good, purehavoc, and I bet it makes a real difference too!
