I got my p95 back from ruger and decided to stipple it. It had zero traction Soni gave it a whirl. I know it is not everyone's cup of tea but I have to say the results came out quite well . What do you guys think ?

Looks like a nice and even job, what did you use to create this stipple job? Also , why stipple the rear frame near the hammer?

I'm wondering the same thing. I'd like to try my hand at it with some Sig grip panels.

i used a weller soldering iron with a fine tip. The polymer of the p95 melts at a higher temp so it did minor melt to the surface of the gun. I stippled the area near the hammer purely for visual flow of the stippling job.

I think it looks great. I do not have the patience for that type of job though.

I'm about 100% sure I would have thrown something after about a half hour.
It wasn't bad... I pulled up justified on the computer and relaxed

I do all of my own 1911 work EXCEPT for serrations. I know my limits when it comes to my patience level. Thats the only time I'll use a Smith except for some warranty work.

I would not have added the back or the dust cover , trigger guard stippling , but to each his own.

Nice workmanship but I think I would have confined the handiwork to just the grip areas.:smile:
