You guys stipple?

Recommended Posts

Recently I've grown fond of buying, fixing, and building G series pistols. I have a 18C project I'm building almost from scratch and something I thought was awesome was texturing your polymer frames.

 

Do you guys stipple?

 

Here is my first attempt. It's a WE 18C lower that I cut to Model 19 length. Took so long I had to do one side at a time.

I will be doing another soon. I'd be interested to see what you got.

Fulltimehobbiest, that is the ONLY personal stippling job I have every seen and actually liked. That work on the P226 is clean, consistent, and uniform. Awesome job!

I agree, if this wasn't a stippling thread I'd have thought that was a factory job.

I've stippled multiple guns in the past. started out awful, but I ended up half decent at it, depending on the patience level I have for the day.

 

I found that stippling isn't really useful, especially when you have gloves on. the gloves usually provide more than enough friction between hand and grip.

I don't play competitively so I don't own or wear gloves. Given that, I'm of the opposite opinion. After stippling, the purchase on the pistol is 200% better when your hands are slightly sweaty. In my case, it improved my longer distance accuracy. I can only say it really helped on the Glocks 100% though.
