    Default wood stippling

    Bizarre as it may sound, I think this might work out okay on the right sort of gun. From the gunheads of Pakistan:

    "What is Wood Stippling? Well!.....Its checkering's ugly cousin which is done to impart a better gripping surface on wood stock for a better hold/handling of a firearm."

    That's interesting
    But I think that's one of those things that's like a work of art, it will only look right on certain things and I don't care for it on that shotgun he did, but on the right firearm I think it would be a great looking personal touch.

    Here's two pics of the shotgun from the link

    Have to agree Coils,,and BTW I'm glad to see you back around again Bud,,

    I had a set of fancy thumb rest grips that were stippled and they looked decent and were fairly grippe and I really liked them allot. I can't remember if they were on a Buckmark or a Ruger MK series I had at one time,,don't recall right now. On one or the other anyways.

    There should be some sort of a punishment for doing that to a fine piece of wood!

    I must admit,, I've seen some God Awful looking target guns that were stippled in my day, but some sure did shoot!!! Ugly or not!!!

    There was one in particular that sticks in my mind from way back,, a Springfield target rifle that was the most cobbled up ugly looking stock you ever saw in your life,,a mismatched wood cheek riser, half fitted, stippling, misfit curved adjustable target butt plate and just real sloppy done overall with no finish on it, red rust on the action and barrel that was in the white and it just plain looked like crap,,,but BOY DID THAT RIFLE SHOOT!!! I never did beat that frigging guy at match's, he'd whip my ass every week-end by 1 or 2 points,,GERRRRRR. Mine shot great too,,but mine was Pretty,,,,,,he was just a better shot I guess. Pretty just didn't matter,,,,,

    Instead of stippling I bead blasted a couple pairs on Yugo M57 wood grips that I made.
    They actually look nice. The bead blasting brought out a deep grain texture in the wood. And with a smooth border it looks really nice.

    Hope this is not too far off topic.

    Heck no, not off topic at all.

    I saw one where a guy rounded off the head of a large framing nail and made it like the head of a small carriage bolt,,maybe a 1/4"ish with a deep crown. Then he used it like a punch and did a stippling type effect on a gun with checkering that was toast! He taped off the edging line and took 80 grit or so and got rid of 99% of the checkering then used the "punch" to pattern that area. Pretty Creative actually, and it didn't look all that bad, especially sense the border was still intact to keep things nice and sharp so it didn't look cobbled up.

    A old beat up Model 700 I think it was??? His deer slayer he'd had forever,,,,

    I still like and prefer stippling. Stocks and 1911 front straps and mainspring housings in particular. Jim Clark came out with his air tool driven stippling and a "bear tooth"other style.
