Vultite 57 Posted September 29, 2013 Report Share Posted September 29, 2013 (edited) I didn't want to post this in the tech section because they are AR grips, but if mods feel that's a better place then by all means go for it. I have Umbrella corp's grip 23's on my AR and they are smooth as silk, but that's the problem. I love the grip angle but dislike the smoothness. SO, I got a wood burning tool called the Versa Tool by Walnut Hollow and decided to give it a go. After practicing on grips I had laying around in my spare parts bin, I got confident enough to give it a go on the real thing....here's what came of it: FYI: 2:13 is where the fun starts http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UUKZZlkxV9WN7a3M2RcyZq-A&feature=player_detailpage&v=JxjiNCONXts I found out that Umbrella's grip needed more heat then the standard grip I practiced on. Overall I liked the end result minus the pain in the ass hand cramping during the process. TIPS: If you guys want to try this, always practice on spare parts first and start your heat settings on low. Too hot will result in large mounds of plastic and a ugly finish.
