    Thinking about stippling either my 21gen4 or 27gen3. Don't know yet. Does it hurt your hands after shooting a while. Anyone have pics of any. Does it drop the value alot. I'm not sure if I'm ready to permanently mod my guns. May not like it. But never seen one in person. Decisions,decisions........

    When you take a soldering iron and make a permanent stippled grip on a polymer gun. Just basically poking at the grip of the pistol with it until it is a rough texture.

    OP: No it does not hurt your hands. You would have to gouge and butcher the polymer pretty bad to create a rough enough or sharp enough grip to hurt you.

    U just sent the perfect pic. That's how I was thinking about doing mine. Not the whole grip like others did. I'm gonna do it. When i get se time that is. How hard is it to get the hogue grip over? Just incase I don't like it. Has anyone ever tried stippling the trigger. Think that would work??

    I'll do the stippling on my 27 first just because that was a used police trade in and my 21 was brand new. If all fails, I could put the talon tape back over the 27.

    i would probably leave the trigger alone. i have seen the guard done, but i wouldnt mess with the trigger.
     
  11. don't stipple the trigger, you will screw with the reliability and functionality of the gun

    I think the stippling looks good but I personally wouldn't do it to my Glock, just my preference

    More than looks, the grip is exceptional.
     
  16. Me personally........nope.

    I wouldn't give $250-300 max for any stippled gun no matter what model or how new.
     
  17. I like the stippling, but neither would I. Personally once a Glock is modified in any way the resale drops imo

    Yeah I'm still contemplating it. Such a big decision for a man toy. Lol. I was even thinking about doing designs and certain stipple types. Like if you can heat up the end of one of those metal cabob things for cooking and do like a diamond stipple. Think it would work? I know it would take forever to do. Lol.
     
  19. Practice on something else first if you decide to make the plunge.
