First proper go a stippling

Recommended Posts

Always wanted a stippled grip on my G17 so thought I’d have a go on a couple of spare back straps I had knocking around. 

 

Pics are are of my second attempt. 

 

I bought a textured lower lower frame so I’m going to stipple my original lower as well. 

 

Let me know what you think.

It looks neat, and aesthetically nicer than the big chunky woodchip-style stippling that we've lolled at in the Airsoft Dreamers thread.

 

This article suggests that deeper (messier) stippling provides more grip, but that's not such a big consideration for us as for real steel (or polymer) shooters.

One day I'm gonna get a tm glock and stipple the whole thing including the slide, trigger, barrel, mag base plates, if I can melt it I'll stipple it. It'll be hilarious.

Funny you should say that, I have a TM G17 I was considering doing that too as well 😂

Maybe just leave a little windows around the trades.

From what I've seen, that stippling effect suits Glocks really well.

Care to share your technique, as that again looks very well done

Ermm 🤔🤔🤔 I just poke it lots with a hot thing 😂

 

After a bit more practice I’d be happy to do some bits if you wanted?

😂😂😂 Awesome technique. I think you could offer it as a service the amount of ruined kit I’ve seen 🙈

I think after I’ve run out of my own guns to do I may start offering it.

Looks very tasty

 

i wonder if the same effect can be done on a tan flavoured WE G17

unsure if the plastics are the same ?? 🤔

G17 frame coming along nicely, think I’m going to use this as the base for scratch build gun.

I would give my right (not left) testicle if someone could stipple a frame for me as shown below.

 

Looking good for just starting out!

 

I have seen some terrible stippling jobs in my time. Straight up looking like they just jabbed the frame with a knife a million times.

Bottom one shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve, just keeping it neat would be the tricky part.
