    Default Grip Stippling (sp?) in AK??

    Anyone know of a place that does stippling on Glocks in AK? I had a sorry excuse for a gunsmith do a grip reduction on my G21 in Colorado and I need someone to fix it and put a nice textured grip back on it. Any ides??
    It's getting to the point where I want to buy a new one because this just looks like hell and doesn't feel quite right.

    Kindest Regards,

    Mountaintrekker

    you can easily convert a soldering iron to a stippler and do it yourself, really nothing too it.

    Yep, a soldering iron is all you need.

    And if you have a Dremel and a willingness to use it liberally, you can be a 1911 gunsmith.

    I've seen lots of melted plastic-fantastics. Few of them looked like anything I would be proud of, and willing to show to someone and say "I did that".

    There are about 3 or 4 smiths that I have seen plastic work from that I would pay money for. Robar has done most of the nice ones I've seen.

    I can buy a case of Krylon rattle cans, or even rent a paint booth and gear and paint my car, but I don't.

    Mountaintrekker specified "nice". I know -my- limitations. You may be better at it than I would be. That wouldn't be hard, trust me.

    Default Ahhh

    AHHH, if only we were all gifted with the skills of some of the folks we see on YouTube. I espescially enjoyed the tutorial on stippling the wood rifle stock with a Dremel tool, I wonder if the guy who brought me the beautiful piece of flame maple would like a little of that treatment on his pistol grip and forend when I get them done.
