Stipple and Grip Work - Pricing

We Plead The 2nd, LLC is an industry leader for providing practical and aesthetic grip work and texture stippling for your polymer frame handguns, at a low cost.

Why Stipple your grip?

Above the obvious of the improved aesthetics we can add to your gun, we can highlight some of the practical reasons we like shootings guns with modified grips.  The most obvious benefit is the added grip, which will help your ability to maintain positive control of the firearm, including in slippery conditions, like water, blood, etc. We add improved ergonomics to the grip by rounding hard edges, making it able to get a higher purchase on the grip by cutting into trigger guards and finger grooves.  Larger hands like the benefit of removing finger grooves on small frames so your fingers can rest more naturally.  When your grip fits your hand better, you gain a sense of consistency where you're holding the gun the exact same way every time, similar to a precision shooter mounting behind a long gun in the exact spot each time.  

All Stipple jobs we do in shop, include any optional services like grip reduction, finger groove removal/enhancement, trigger guard undercuts and frame index points.  On some frames where applicable, we contour and blend in backstraps and outline aftermarket magwells if they are sent in or purchased with the job order.

Included Services.

Grip Reduction: All Stipple and Texture jobs come with a basic grip reduction.  This removes the factory texture from the sides of the Grip and trims the sidewalls to blend and contour better with your new texture.  If a backstrap is on your gun, we would epoxy it so it doesn't move, and blend the edges to accept a seamless texture.

Index Points: If you want, this area will be stippled to match your selected texture, adding grip to where your support thumb rests while firing, and your index finder should rest when not in a fire position.  Index Point stippling also aids in recoil management with addition grip to your support hand thumb.

Trigger Guard Under Cut: This alteration makes your grip more comfortable, by achieving an over all higher grip.  This is crucial for recoil management, follow up shots, and overall control over the gun. Not available on all frames.

Trigger Guard Support Cut:  Adding an additional undercut for your support hand's index finder.  If you feel your support hand's index finger is "crammed" against the trigger guard when you grip your gun currently, this will be an excellent modification for you.  Not available on all frames.

Finger Groove Removal: If you feel pressure or pinch points on your strong hang fingers when you grip your firearm, removing them will allow your hand to rest naturally and consistently on the grip, and over all makes the grip smaller.  Not available on all frames. 

Recessed Mag Release:  Available on Gen1-3 Glocks only.  This is one example of a small change that makes a dramatic difference .  Simply put, this modification allows for your thumb to better reach the factory mag release without compromising or changing your grip to do so.  This will speed up your mag changes,  aid in mag change consistency and maintaining your accuracy. We see extended magazine releases on Glocks all the time, but in many cases this modification fixes the problem without having a larger projection release.

CARRY TEXTURE: Our most popular texture.  Large shallow print texture that we call Carry Texture.  This clean looking texture is hand applied in a way that adds a great level of grip without having the aggressive dig in and abrasive-ness of other textures.

AGGRESSIVE TEXTURE: Small Aggressive Print.  This best resembles sand paper or grip tape.  The smaller texture is more aggressive and takes away the visible signs of a heavy texture from a distance, giving a darker uniform look, best described as sand paper.
