    Stippling.... Pro's and Con's

    I've had my Glock 22 gen 3 for about 5-6 years and never plan on selling it. I'm interested in stippling the polymer handle. Does it really increase the grip?

    Just looking for some first hand knowledge...

    Yes it does. A negative side affect is that grip can also be uncomfortable on your side if its a concealed weapon.

    Just a personal opinion but I would NEVER stipple a gun. Any gun. To me it is designed to be as it is. I could see putting a grip sleeve on it or maybe some grip tape but to make a permanent alteration like stippling to me is destroying a fine firearm. I have never seen a stippling job that I liked to be honest. If it were something worthwhile like a bomar cut or some slide serrations, I could probably see that but someone taking a woodturner to my plastic frame....no. Not a chance. I know you say you will never sell it and that may be true but then there may be a situation where you don't have a choice. I know I would not buy a stippled gun (and I have had the opportunity to buy many). Most people selling one seem to think it increases the value of the gun. I see it completely the opposite. It would have to be a dead give away to get my interest. Just my opinion though. If it makes you happy and you like it. Go for it.

    The grip tape is nice. However, I have heard people talk about the rubber grips slipping up over the slide release and stopping the user from being able to release the magazine.

    Definetly helps with grip. I don't find it uncomfortable and I carry appendix. It's defenitly something you can do yourself if you don't want anything fancy. This is what I did to my G26 about a year or more ago.

    Slip on grips suck. Talons are nice but i almost always stipple my carry guns, and i do it aggressively. I work for a living my hands are rough and stippling makes a huge difference to me. The grips on gens 1-3 and I feel like im holding a stick of butter. I dont worry about the "value" of a used Glock. I also undercut triggerguards, do grip reductionsClick image for larger version.

    Looks good and of course it shouldnt be any less comfortable if you carry IWB with and undershirt between the gun and your skin. Honestly I dont know why anyone would carry IWB without an undershirt its just that much more comfortable with the shirt between the gun and your skin. It allows the gun to slide around more as you move and it just makes the gun jabbing in at you that much softer.
