    I've seen it done a lot and thought I'd give it a try. It's not too dufficult but I think I need some more practice before I do a pistol frame. I'm thinking I may take the soldering iron to my synthetic 870 stock after a few more try's.

    If anyone else has something they've stippled, post up some pics.

    Here's a pic if mine. I went for the "tree bark" look

    Thanks fellas! It actually wasn't too hard and only took me about 30/45 minutes to grind the finger nub off and stipple. Oregonplinker pm me if you're serious and we'll see if we can work something out.

    That's just beautiful!!! It also looks like your skin would come off before it slipped!

    It definitely has some grip to it but its not sharp where it hurts to squeeze it. I plan on putting it on my rifle this weekend and running some rounds through it to see what it feels like with some weight on it and under recoil.

    Looks good! I've been thinking of doing my M&P but am a little hesitant about ruining the frame.

    I like that, and the grip at the top of the page also. I'm curious how you got that texture?

    I've done a few myself. Here is a M&P I did for my friend:

    That looks good. You removed the finger grooves as well huh. Nice Job.

    it's cozy without the finger grooves, and I also think the notch under the trigger guard for "glock knuckle" is a really good mod as well. i did a G22L like that and it's really comfortable.
