what tips used for stippling?

does anyone know what kind of tips used for stippling, and where to get them? For practice I just used the tip of an old soldering iron on my magazine sleeve, and it turned out ok. I would like to do my own grip, but I want to do an acceptable job. So having a good workable tip would be nice.

I brought a soldering kit from Walmart and cut the tip and it worked great.

look for woodburning iron tips in the patterns that you want.. that would be the easiest way to get a custom pattern..

I just ordered one of these for stripling, one of the tips matches what I've seen used stripling (and what I thought was a nice pattern) on a video, plus there are 18 others to choose from. was the only one I saw that had tips that were a usable pattern.

I have never seen this in person only pictures but it would scare the crap out of me to do this to a $600 gun and the mod is not reversable...

that does look like a nice kit...

yes it is scary but I think i am going to try it when I get back from Korea. I did notice someone mentioning practicing on the mag loader we never use, and maybe the mag holders which i never use.

After a couple practice rounds on a Glock mag loader, I took the leap and stippled the grip of my G30. It looks awesome and more importantly is functional. The original was just a bit too slick. Once I was done the stippling was a bit too sharp, so I sanded it down, rinsed and dried it and it is now perfect. Have since done the grips and mag base plates for my G27 and a co-worker's G23. Very easy, just go slow. Recommendation: I used a dremel first to round the trigger guards, grind off those finger grooves and the "grenade checkering". Do your mods first, cover the scars with beautiful stippling.
