Grip Module Modifications

I have three topics I would like to get some discussion around. Essentially I am looking for those who have done these three things, what your process was and maybe a pic or two of the outcome;

1. Stippling the grip - I am using Talon grip tape for now and like it, but know some of you are pro stipplers. What is your process? How difficult is it? Do you pattern first?

2. Grip Module cut down - I just ordered a large full size grip module for my .45 Carry and will need to cut it down to fit the Carry slide.

3. Grip Module Coloring - I have seen examples of (aside from the typical black, ODG and FDE) grip frames in different colors (Bronze, Gray, etc...). Is this typical paint or another process? How does it hold up. Is it best to start with FDE or black modules?

4. Other Useful GF Mods - what else have you done to your grip modules?

1. YouTube is your friend
2. Mark your lines first. I start with a saw, and move to files and increasingly fine sand paper.
3. I just saw someone using fabric dye but Cerakote is the more popular way to get other colors.
4. I like glue and grit jobs. Not much practical limit to what type of mods you can do. It really just depends on what you want to use it for.

I like the Boresight mods. Rounded off of the flats above the trigger, undercut the trigger guard, etc.

I'm about to go full ****** on a carry module that I experimented with stippling on. I'll post carnage later.

Went a little more subtle with this one today. Significantly less prep if you keep the lines natural.

Edit: added the thumb patch

I literally just did my first ever stipple job last night. I watched all the youtube videos I could find and just set off with a dremel, wood burning iron and some beer.

I outlined the grip I had in mind with a pencil (shamelessly stole JDC and others similar grip style) and went at it. I dremeled down all the OEM grip and lines... then grabbed the blunt tip tool and poked away counting "one mississippi" between dots.

Here's some photo's... feel free to ask away any questions.

I have not tried yet, but have seen some fine craftmanship so far.

Nice work there guys.

I got the Large full size grip frame today for my Carry .45. I went ahead and cut the front down to size. I think I am going to cut it back a bit more this weekend and do a bit more smoothing around the barrel and undercut the frame a bit more.

I also added the Talon tape to the grip which went on nicely.

The grip frame material is far easier to work with than I expected. Did this job in about 15 minutes with a simple hack saw and my bench grinder.

This was the second thread I found on undercutting the trigger guard. Can't find the same threads I found on my phone-- someone had an ODG module undercut and stippled.

I got another grip mainly to do some undercutting, stippling is an afterthought. Pretty happy with the undercut so far, may not want to risk ruining the module if I screw up with stippling.

Here's the first pic I took:



Poor lighting on this one, came in to finish the Wiz-Celtics game.



I'd want to cut into the trigger higher, but I'm running out of material near the mag release. The front of the stock grip feels very square to me (not as bad as the Glock tho) so rounding it out made it feel more comfy.

I want to undercut the beaver tail so bad (maybe I should have gotten a Glock) but there is little material... might end up with a hole lol.

What iron kit is that and where did you find it?

wood burning art thing?

Edit/ to RatBikeRod beware using pencil to make outline or pattern on a Fde grip can leave dark marks on your stipple marks or it did on mine

I undercut the grip under the trigger guard and the back of the frame to get a few mils more grip on my P320sc.
