A guy recently posted a heap of pictures on stippling everything he owned from guns to video game controllers. Search for plastic stippling I may have gone crazy. His name is swervin.

I've stippled my own weapons before. I'm not very artistic so it's not exactly pretty but it works. Just takes a steady hand and a sod iron. I practiced on a magpul grip and pmag before I did a handgun...that was before pmags were worth $100 bucks lol

Get some sticky tape that skateboarders use. Stippling your own gun is surefire way to turn a $500 gun into a $50 gun. Lots of gun shops and online vendors sell sticky tape kits. Lots of IDPA shooters use the sticky tape kits.

Or just but one of those Pachmyer(sp?) rubber pistol grip sleeves. I bought two for my pocket rockets, I think the small ones were $8.95, might run you $20 for a full size sleeve. Beats hell outta doin' $100 - $200 worth of damage to yer piece.

I have done a few things and they always turn out great, however some of them were so rough that if you didnt wear gloves it literally shredded your skin . so on those items I have taken a small piece of emery cloth and taken some of the edges back down it almost gives it a rubbery feel . Its not hard to do but very time consuming

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.
