Hey guys, so this is part 3 of the Glock 43 Project. In this video i demonstrate the process that i use to texture (stipple) the polymer frame, and how i achieve straight lines. Hope you guys like this one. Enjoy.

I've never tried that method. I'm more of a random pattern type of dude.

IMG_2020.JPGOr..... install Talon Grips like I did. They have a sticky texture and they are removable if you need to. They're only about 10 bucks and they won't ruin your warranty. I have them on all my polymer frames. They also come in colors so you could put FDE on a black frame or black grips on an FTE frame. Never could understand why anybody would want to ruin the frame of the pistol by punching holes in it. LOL

I hear you man, three years ago you could not have even given me one of these.
But when I found out you can just put them in the dishwasher to clean them that's what change my mind. Just don't leave them in a hot car or your magazines will split and your sites will melt.

Well, since it's plastic, I suppose you could put it in the dishwasher along with the china from Sundays dinner.
