    Pretty cool!!! Nice work.

    J4l, I am guessing he did it to improve the grip. I would think it is similar to those who put a wraparound grip on their 1911s.

    Correct, the factory grip is only so-so, I didn't really realize the difference until I stippled one of the unused backs traps. Instantly I could tell a huge difference.

    Also I did 2 small patches where originally there was no texture, just behind the slide release where my thumb sits and above the trigger guard where my index finger sits.

    I guess i should have added it but here is a before shot.

    Yes, with a woodburning iron, after filing and sanding.





    There's a surprising amount of freedom to change things, to start over with a different kid of stippling. It's almost like molding clay.
