So it's been a while since I've posted anything, so why now start with a bang! I just recently finished stippling my 19, reshaping the trigger guard and have some cerakote sprayed. Everything was done at home with the exception of the cerakote, something's are jus easier to outsource. I hope y'all like.

Great stippling job!  Looks like you really took your time on it!

I was using a soldering iron too, that I shaped the point on with a file, but for this I used a "wood burning tool" from Michaels Craft Store. It was ~$15 and I like it a lot more than the soldering iron, mainly because it isn't as long so I can hold the tip more steady.

Man, looks like one bad drop and that trigger guard is going to eat it (meaning break). How thick would you say the material is in the thinnest parts of the guard.

Very nice job, it looks great and you obviously spent a lot of time on detail, I see that you even did the slide cover plate which I think is the first time I have seen that. 

 

I do have the same question as Mange regarding the thickness of the trigger guard. When you press on the trigger guard is there any flex or softness in it at all?

@davis The slide plate was me working up the balls to do it on the frame, ha! It does tie all the stippling together ;)

As for the trigger guard, I'll say that thing is still rock solid, zero give or flex. The polymer Glock uses is a damn strong material, that's for sure. The styling is something I mirrored off the guys at boresightsolutions and SAI. This thing feels awesome, that alone made me satisfied with the decision to do the undercut. The secondary cut under the trigger guard does make the support had more comfortable when you're in the proper hand position to drive the thumbs forward, so that's a plus.

Did you leave the portions under the trigger guard that aren't stippled smooth or retexture somehow? I did some work on my 19 and left the bottom of the trigger guard smooth. Looks a little funky with no texture but I didn't know what to do.

Wicked mod. That's the first I've seen a "undercut" in the trigger guard. Stippling is very nice.

I left it smooth, I even polished it up some more. I love the way it feels!

Thanks dude, wish I could say I came up with it. There are a bunch of folks/companies on Instagram that are all doing it....an example (way better than my work)
