Hey guys! So I finally picked up my first Glock out of jail 2 days ago! its a G26 and i am VEEERRRRYYYYYY happy with it! I cant believe that I waited this long to get one. but, as promised on the tittle, here are the pics of the heat stippling job I did on it. Its my first time and i think I did pretty good. I used a short strip method and it all blended pretty good.

I had a harder time going between the finger groves but I got around them in the end. I think I had one or 2 hick ups but all in all, it came out the way i wanted it and im very happy with the job. The grip on it now is 10 times better. This makes it super easy to grab and gives it better traction.

Looks very tactile. I too find Glocks slippery at times so I may take the plunge someday. Maybe I can practice on my wife's without her noticing.:whistling:

congratulations again on obtaining it, and enjoy. i just put a G26 on an extended layaway to replace the one i had years ago. it should be paid for in about 6 months!

It's a Glock reincarnated as tree bark. You won't have any recoil control problems with that finish :)

Congrats on taking the plunge! Nice how you kept the Glock emblem intact with clean edges. Now your gun is personalized for you.

It looks good man :)

Look at you, you're a Glock convert. Plus that G26 was hacked up to fit that external safety, no? If so you covered up a big eye sore to see that hacked up frame.

I too went with the linear style gripping as opposed to the standard dot stippling. That stuff will stick to your hands like velcro no matter what conditions. I just got back from six days at frontsight with my "treebark" G19. I put about 1400 rounds through it with tired, dirty, sweaty, and greasy sun-lotioned hands and not once did it ever feel like it was coming loose from them. Congrats on your project, I know you'll appreciate the much better feel of the grip.
