    Home-stippled Dark Side (G23)...56K warning

    Hey guys,

    Here is a fellow's G23 that I did this week.

    I left the Glock logo on this one (unlike my last one). This particular fellow likes the finger grooves on his guns.

    Any other input is welcome guys! If y'all see something that I can improve on, let me know.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Impressive work.

    How long did it take you to complete the job?

    I put a self-adhesive sandpaper patch on the right side of my XD's grip, but not on the left. It's the best of both worlds; a much better grip and no roughness against the holster's sweat guard.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah it does sort of feel like lava rock

    The reason I started doing this, like some brought up is that I had the same problem with grip tape.
    Yes, it works great for grip, but it tears up clothes when CCW. This is much grippier than the factory finish,
    but not nearly as 'abrasive' as grip tape.

    While personally I could take or leave stippling, it looks like a job well done!
