Default Just stippled my glock 17 and f***** up!

just kidding. i love it! added a lot more traction with bare/wet/oily hands or gloves. took me under 1 hour and 30 mins to complete with a 8 dollar soldering iron from wally world. i used the pointed tip. under the trigger guard is grip tape, and where your left thumb rest on the frame with the 2 thumbs up grip is also. I'm not selling it, she's a keeper! i was wondering though.... will the value of it drop after stippling it?

Normally dont care for stippled guns, but you didnt go crazy and it still looks good I would venture to say its worth the same, just not as easy to find a buyer.

You did a quality job; looks professional. I doubt the value will drop. Probably stay the same.

I've seen some Butt-Ugly do it yourself jobs but yours looks great.!

Right now I have the grip decals on mine (which have stayed secure for over a year now with no signs of peeling + it feels just like stippling), but I might end up stippling just those key spots as you have. The decals add a very minimal amount of extra thickness that is uneccessary.

I'm going to go for this type of texture (foregrip on my 995ts):

BTW good job! Never was a fan on stippling at first either, mostly because the jobs I saw were just terrible. The added texture is without debate an effective way to add better grip tho

Very nice.

I don't normally like or appreciate stippled Glocks, but it looks like you did a good job on yours. As a result, I may reconsider my position on stippled Glocks.

Super clean lines! Its deeper then I like to go but that is just my preference. I have heard of people going clean through the frame, no idea how someone does that without trying.

for some owners a good quality stippling job is an upgrade, and for others it would lower value. while i wouldn't have a stippling job done to one of my Glocks, yours looks very nice.

congrats on a great job.

You know, I greatly dislike stippled Glocks because the weird patterns make it look half-axxed. But that looks effing amazing, good job!

as other have said it depends on the buyer, you did a nice job so i would say that it wont decrees the value any lower then a normal used Glock. I wouldn't say it increases resale value either, but it does increase personal value, and at the end of the day, as long as your happy with it that's all that matters.

I've never been a fan of stippling. I bought a used Glock 19 that was stippled by the previous owner at a smoking deal price since he figured his custom work decreased the private party value. I ended up selling it a few months later since it didn't feel natural to me and plus it was my second G19. Had way more grip than what I'm used to so it had to go. Your work looks good but just dont go over board and add more to it. I think if you ever decide to sell it, the price should remain the same as a Glock without a stippling job. So I think youre good.

Looks good. I once had an M&P that was professionally stippled and the recoil control on it was very good.

You did a very nice job. MUCH better than some of the craptastic home melting jobies I've seen in the past. You obviously have patience and an eye for detail. I don't care for stippling and wouldn't buy one that was stippled, but that's just me. Congrats on your fine workmanship!
