Default glock 17 grip reduction

I do not like it when people take their soldering iron to their glocks but this is the best looking one that I have seen done;

How was this done? Is it grip tape? It looks inset to the frame, and that all surfaces were sanded smooth.

I'm also not a big fan of guns that the polymer frames have been monkeyed with, but I saw this gun over the weekend at a gun-show and am planning to visit them and possibly give my 27 one more chance. They remove the finger groves and undercut the trigger guard enabling you to get more hand on the gun. As hot as the 27 is and me not being able to get a good hold of it, I've never been particularly fond of mine. They're going to allow me to shoot this gun before I drop any money.

They do it with a soldering iron and just set and poke and poke and poke, I think it looks really good...I'm going to do mine but with my initials on it..seen one done and it look sharp...

I can only imagine how many times I would burn myself while TRYING to do something like that. How much is it to get it done? Just curious

I guess it would depend on what you would be willing to pay someone to do that for you, I know some gun shops are charging over $300.00 to do a DuraCoat job and I think that is to much..I did my own and I think it came out good for the first time..
