    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

    Ha! That's awesome dude! Careful though, there are some things that don't need to be stippled, like toilet paper. Just thought I'd point that out because you seem to be on a roll!

    Thanks guys, I only did the lower part of the MOE handguard thats really all I grip .The factory handguards are coming off that rifle as I have another set on the way for it so I figured why not . Im all done except maybe a few more PMags but I think those are a different type of poly it was alot tougher to melt and took longer than the hand guards . your gloves will grip really well to it as well as bare handed and my biggest notice was with the factory hand guards bare handed the factory grips are super smooth and very slick , that material was a little bit softer and easier to melt and grips a little bit better than the magpul stippled stuff .
