So I got sucked in to YouTube again today and for the one-hundred-kazillionth time someone was attacking a polymer pistol with a soldering Iron. But this time the gun didn’t end up looking like the result of some duffus attacking a polymer pistol with a soldering iron. It looked good for once.
So I went to the garage, pulled out my soldering iron, and proceeded to let the unused pinky extension base plate of a Kel-Tec mag feel the burn.
And It looked good! So, since I’m not carrying the G36 concealed anymore it was the obvious candidate for trying this out some more.
I still need to do the back strap and front finger grooves but I like it.
I wouldn’t recommend doing it to a concealed carry gun that is going to rub up against your bare side skin or clothing but It’s better than skateboard tape and feels great in the hand.
I will probably stipple my older XD .40 also. It’s pretty much a nightstand gun now that I’m packing the XDm .45 and I may re-task the XD .40 for competitive shooting duty also.
I’ve also already stippled my computer mouse, the TV remote, and various pool maintenance tools…
