    Looks like it would stick to your hand, but I'm not crazy about the trigger. I think it would be a little abrasive.

    Otherwise, looks good.

    The workmanship looks outstanding!

    The name: "Poly-Engraver" comes to mind.

    Congrats.

    I may make some changes, I'll see how everything feels on the next range trip.
    I may smooth out the area under the trigger guard (pointed out by Jester on mp-pistol.com)where the middle finger rests. The trigger itself may get retouched also. Depends on how my hand feels after 100 rounds or so. Although I may deal with a little abrasion in the long sessions if it helps with the handling during draw-and-fire exercises.

    The big question...

    I know you can hold onto that gun.

    But can you let go of it?

    I just used a cheap lower wattage soldering iron. I filed the tip to very fine point and practiced a good bit on my extra grip straps. The frame behaves a little differently than the grip straps and the kydex (mag sleeve) more so.
    I drew out in pencil the boundaries for the striping on the frame and trigger guard.
    On the grip I just used a random pattern and followed the boundaries already molded in.
    The trigger was a little tricky. Just be careful not to hit the trigger guard when working on the trigger
    I think some of the Gunsmiths who are doing this have made up shaped irons for their signature look.
    Basically all you need is a steady hand and the willingness to scrap a $300.00 frame. The straps and trigger are cheap and easy to replace!

    I'm wondering why that is needed? Is it for cosmetics or did the gun slide around in your hand? For myself, I think the M&P feels perfect in the hand and shoots wonderfully just the way they come from the factory.

    The clowns in government office see the solution to everything is write more laws, creating the ever-mounting morass of legal handicaps that we citizens must labor under.

    Thats pretty cool man..I always wondered how that was done. I've seen pics of Glocks and XD's with that done and always thought it looked good.

    Really nice- especially the handle! I dont like to have the bottom of trigger guard textured myself. I've had my eye on the M&P 40c.

    That's a very nice job. I'm with the others I like a smooth or maybe a grooved trigger.
