Finally got around to adding some stippling the stock, Ive been meaning to do this for some time.
The stock was way to smooth for my liking, this gives the stock some much needed texture and also adds a little personal touch to it 8) definitely feels a lot better now. :D

I used to use grip tape of skateboards 25 years ago when fibre glass stocks came out.
Did you stipple the way you normally stipple a wood stock?

I love it. I also feel the stock a little slippery on the 953. What did you use. Looks like a hot nail point. Great job.

Looks awesome, Ace! Very nicely done! :supz:

I'm with Joe - hot nail or awl point pressed in, or did you just grab a hammer and tap, tap, tap away???

Your eyes not bugged outta yer head and cross-eyed by the time you finished, though?...mine would be! :shock: :lol: :lol:

Thanks guys i appreciate the replies :wink:

Sorry i should have added some more info yesterday when i posted this but it was late and as mentioned by Todd yes my eyes were lets say for better words fatigued. :rolleyes: :lol:

I will be doing the forestock as well not that i need the grip there so much as i usually just rest the front of the rifle on my palm but I'll add it just to finish off the design. 8)

Its a tedious job so take your time to get a nice tight finish i actually rushed it a little myself :( but it still turned out OK.

I used a hobby tool like the one in the pic below it works great and comes with interchangeable front tips and can be used for other hobby's like wood burning/engraving.

Little bit of caution should be taken if you do decide to try this, i had a small exhaust fan on my work space so make sure you have a well ventilated area because the burning plastic is definitely not good to inhale. :|

for those that haven't see the stippling on my P-17 here it is this was my first attempt at stippling, i used a soldering iron when i did this one.
thanks again cheers. :wink:

Very nice Ace.
And having held one you did I can say it is very "grippie"...
Yet another thing to add to my project wish list.
You guys just have too many good ideas.
