No Glock is complete without permanent grip enhancement... I have to settle with grip tape on my work gun.

I am not a glock guy, not by a long shot. I rarely if ever like the way they look ... but yours looks pretty rad.

I have bought custom backstraps for the M&P from him. His work is top notch and 100% more traction than stock backstraps.

You're either a bad troll, or clueless. Not sure which is worse.

The stipple on your 34 is weak bro. Looks like a web from spiderman with a west coast chopper logo. Not a good mix. Like I said before I hope u didnt over spend. Just looking out for your expenses.

Wow, google "Noveske logo" and you'll see so much discussion on it stemming from

"It's an iron cross", no it's not, Noveske calls it an "iron X", no wait, it's the "Maltese Cross", no wait, it's the profile of a rifling broach (tool) used to cut rifling, no it means something, no it doesn't ... etc....

Bottom line I think is that Noveske uses it because it looks cools.

I think the stippling is really good, and doesn't look like some of those "hairy leg" glocks I've seen. I'm sure there are better and there are worse. Bottom line is ... the OP likes it so that's the only thing that really matters in terms of aesthetics. I mean sheesh, it's not like he got a tattoo of it. Well, I hope he didn't.

You need to stop watching west coast choppers dude if that's the logo you see. THat show was washed up about a decade ago, time for you to move on.

There are tons of companies with Iron Cross logos. If anything it's looking like Independent skate trucks logo

umm I'm sure its been done before already. you act like he's an inventor. lol. umm no i wasn't thread crapping i was stating my opinion and you got ur victoria secrets in a bunch. i think the stipple on your gun looks good, but its mediocre. ZEV isn't the only one using the pattern btw and fyi it is one of the most sought out patterns for stippling.

The "honey comb" pattern that looks like a few other peoples I have seen. There's also a guy in vegas that cerakotes his stuff that army green that does the same pattern. Not knocking your work, but it's nothing out of the ordinary for you to get all high and mighty about it.

the scallop stippling is done by a lot of fellas. i wasn't knocking his work. like i said it was good, but mediocre. as a whole. ya the guy in vegas also won't show anyone how he makes his bits on youtube. makes it a secret so he can get more customers to send in their guns. i would be more than glad to share the info along.

Look, I think your work looks great. I think damatos looks great. I just think that californians approach on giving their opinions are a little more abrasive than on other forums for sure. Threw me for a loop. Everyone in Cali is a wanna be cool guy, i forgot.

And point me to where the other people are that are scallopping like Damato. I haven't seen any, and I did a lot of research before I sent him my gun.

damatos work is good. i never said it wasn't. i have practiced the scallop pattern but i don't advertise like damato. I've only seen the pattern from other guys that have posted it.

I'm good man i have no beef with you or ur gun.

Never held a stippled pistol but i feel like it would be comfortable but there would be one piece of melted plastic that sticks out and just pokes and irritates your hand

I wonder how it would look if you duracoated a frame a color then stippled it. Anyone done it?

Some stippling sticks out more than others depending on who did it. If you get it from a competent person like Damato or USMC it won't be irritating like that, just extra grippy.

Some people like the rough feel. If not some fine sand paper to smooth it out. If you cerakote prior to stippling it will show black dots.

Do they have any that aren't +2 on the mag capacity? I would go for one of those noveske ones if they weren't adding capacity.

I hope you got Noveske's permission to use their logo... which you have no rights to.

That's not what you declared in post #1. Despite that, you would also need to have permission from Independent.

I was just kidding about the Independent logo. However, I really don't think an Iron Cross logo that is used by numerous companies is trade marked. But thank you for your concern. I wonder if Noveske got permission from Independent to use their logo, probably not.

Every logo is trademarked. The very fact you named two companies clearly says you are using logos of two different companies without permission. They may bear resemblance to an iron cross, but that doesn't mean they are exact copies of an iron cross or of one another. If you want to use that line of defense, you shouldn't have made direct references to Noveske or Independent, and kept the description more generic.

Do you deal with legalities of usage rights in a professional capacity? I do.
