A friend of mine taught me this and I figured I would share it with you. I have done this to my 1911 grips and let me tell you it completely changes the feel of the grip in your hand.

The rest of the gun needs work still but all in good time.

A closer view.

The grips shown are from Mako and have an extended magwell.

Also it is a good way to turn cheap plastic grips into custom textured grips.

Here is a quick tutorial:

It isnt very hard to do but keep in mind that if you aren’t comfortable taking a soldering iron to your Glock, it might be best to take it to a professional. This is something that can’t be undone.

EDIT: For some reason, UMG will not allow this video to be played as an embedded video. It will play for you on YouTube after the jump. (I think because it has a Guns ‘n Roses song in it.)

MSRP = $4800.00 but they are raffling them off at $25.00 a ticket.

You can’t see it in the picture bu the receiver is engraved with a beautiful South Dakota pheasant scene. The maker tells me that while it is functional, you wouldn’t want to shoot it as the plating covers everything. Inside and out. Any shot fired would blow out all of the gold from inside the barrel.

Custom engraved lever guns.

They dont make them like they used to.

This immaculate collection is owned by a man out of Mitchell, SD. They won Best in show at the 2009 Aberdeen gun show in the Long Rifle class. Each one is hand crafted  and 100% unique.

The picture says it all.

The dowel in the triggerguard is actually a dehydrated seal penis.

A closer view of the winning gun's reciever engraving.

THis is the 2011 Collectible long gun winner owned by a man from Park Rapids, MN. Aside from the immaculate bison engraving on this Winchesters receiver, also pay attention to the dowel holding it up. The owner of this gun informed me that it is actually a dehydrated seal penis otherwise known as an oo-sick. Kinda creepy, but original.
