    I was going to just post this in one of the picture threads, but I'm feeling special today. I gave stippling a shot on my PPS earlier this week and think it turned out great. I experimented on a PMag, chose a couple of patterns and then went for it - I did the raised contact lines on the front and rear of the frame with a fine sandpaper-like stippling, and then a fish-scale like pattern on the sides. I also did the magazines to match. Feels infinitely better than the stock grip without the added width and exaggerated finger grooves that my Hogue Handall Jr. added.

    It's hard to photograph, but... Oh well.

    Looks great, I could never bring myself to do it to mine, I'm sure it would end up AFU.

    Thanks, guys!

    It was definitely stressful, but everything I own ends up getting turned into a project somehow and figured this was relatively low risk... I don't ever plan on getting rid of the PPS, so worst-case from this would have been having an ugly one, I guess. :green:

    Nicely done! The Kraut Heads in Ulm are probably having Schweinebraten und Sauerkraut induced strokes and myocardial arrests as they view your pics!
