Stippled my Sig, so worth the time!
 
Decided to buy a soldering iron so I could stipple the Sig. Best $10 investment ever. It took me around 4 hours to do, but it was well worth it. I have so much more grip compared to stock form.

Thanks man. Super easy, but takes a while. Just take the point of the iron and apply slight pressure. I went over all the gaps afterwards. Here is a nice youtube video that shows it in action.

I know a lot of glock guys go this route, and many even use skateboard grip tape.

I could have done it in 2-3 easily, but I was watching TV and my hands shake like a junkie....

You guys really think it looks good? I think it looks meh, but functionally it's great...

Dude, I think it looks factory. Well done.

However, I could never do that to my guns...melting the receiver would be way more than I was prepared to do to get the extra grip. I'd much rather throw some tape on it

That's art my friend. A job well done.

If you want a pretty gun, get a 1911. If it's meant to shoot abuse the crap out of it. Gives it character. :D

Let us know how the stippling works for you under the trigger guard. Curious as to whether that will chew up your fingers or not.

looks good dude

I like it!!! Good work. I never have grip problems though.

Green_Shine 12-03-2012 07:09 AM

That is legit. Good job, bad ass Sig too.

SLVR JDM 12-06-2012 03:31 PM

Excellent work, honestly. This doesn't look like the first time you've done this, so way to go.
