    What's the best way to modify a polymer framed gun? Can you use a dremel tool, or files? I have heard some people even use a soldering iron for texture? I mostly want to round and radius off sharp edges on trigger guard. Thanks :)

    I'd use a file and then perhaps 200 grit sandpaper, perhaps backed by/with a piece of flat wood if you are doing flats.
    Don't forget ye old hacksaw and axe though!

    It's pretty easy to go too far with a dremel tool, hand tools will give you more control.
