Enhanced G26 Gen3

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Don't really post much on here but do visit just about every day.

Wanted to share some of the work I've done to a Gen3 26.
Not sure how everyone feels about the stippling but I'm real happy with it.
Pretty new to this polymer "enhancement" stuff so feedback is welcome. (only my 3rd attempt)

Planning to add some durakote "dark bronze" here pretty soon but here are a few pics in the meantime.

Looks good! Not a big fan of the over the top "gucci" glocks, but that looks very clean

Looks good. Did you use a soldering iron or air hammer to do the stippling?

How's the "grippiness" on it? Like that undercut too.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of stippling. I know it has a function, and agree that it serves that purpose well. I just haven't warmed up to a pistol with that done on it.

That being said, this is one of the nicest stippling jobs I've seen. It has a uniformity to it that really is spectacular. It doesn't look like a quickie job on the kitchen table while having an adult beverage or three.

It's quite well done as far as I'm concerned. Like the looks of your undercuts on the frame too. would love to see how it feels.

Grip/control is excellent!
I used a dremel to cut the borders and shape the trigger guard. I also did the “glove” cut. (Ramp entering the trigger.) 
Then, LOTS of sanding  and polishing.
After that I used a wood burner for the pattern.

Thanks brother! 
I really appreciate your comments! 
Be happy to let you run a few through it sometime!

Thanks. That would be nice.

Didn't notice where you were from. Maybe jhc77, you, and I could get together sometime.

Kudos to you brother! I've seen some folks on forums absolutely butcher their firearms trying to do a stippling job. A+ work

What range do you typically go to?

I’m very fortunate to have a good friend with some property that I can run drills and such. 
Other than that it’s Owl Hollow and/or Franklin Range.

That's pretty slick. I carried a 26 a few years ago and settled on a Shield for now. I'm around during daylight hours and Saturdays. The littles keep me busy with homework, football, gymnastics and then softball through the summer.  Stay-at-home parent isn't as much fun as one might think.
