    Honestly I don't understand why you wouldn't do it yourself. Glocks are hardly a show piece so if you mess up, just keep manipulating the plastic.

    Sure it does, DIY.

    That said, talk is cheap so I setup to do my 1st stippling today and rather than start on a Glock, I *practiced* on an AR Thermold mag.

    It was brutal! .. lol

    its the simplest thing ever if I can do it anyone can your pushing too hard and rushing it probably. all you need is to take your time and use light pressure. Youre probably over thinking it

    Light pressure and right when it starts to melt lift up blow on it to cool it if you have to. Also I don't poke straight down I go at a 45 probably( makes an aggressive grip) I got a iron with removable tips try different tips if yours has the option or put a temp controller on(if possible?)
