I can confirm Lou hand stipples only. He just did a Glock frame for me. Came out amazing though."hi"...jesus mr. iglesias, i had to double check your nes born on date, i thought you were a newbie and just joined today. so, maybe you meant "high"?
call lou biondo at bec. i'd bet he at least knows someone that could do it for you. he has a lot of resources at hand. greg also.
That is good to know, thank you.Might not be immediately relevant, but worth pointing out. Careful if that happens to be a P80. The polymer is inferior to OEM Glock/Sig/S&W, and can deform rather easily at the same laser wattage. If the stippler has no experience in this matter, you could end up with a melted pile of goo.
I browsed through San Antonio's gallery. Wow.I know you said you’d like to keep it local, but if you change you’re mind, look into San Antonio laser engraving. Check out the gallery in the site of the work they’ve done. It’s the best I’ve ever seen at a good price. It’s worth the ship.

Most laser stuff I found online is between $100-150 maybe $200 depending on the design. This is only the plastic frame.never been a fan of stippling. most of them look sloppy, done by a kid with his new wood burning tool. BUT...that example of lou's work is right on, i'd have it done on mine no proplem. then i saw the laser stuff, like it so much i thought about for a second. didn't see a price list, gotta be expensive.
yeah, the plastic. that's all i meant. i don't think laser etching on metal looks good, but rather cheap. old school here, i like hand engraved. i have one example i had done, my trigger guard for a krieghoff. a guy named kurt horvath did it before he was a name in the field.Most laser stuff I found online is between $100-150 maybe $200 depending on the design.

I havent seen one in person, but the pictures look great.
I am the same way with metal. I like to see the depth of the engraving, I dont like shallow laser engraving.yeah, the plastic. that's all i meant. i don't think laser etching on metal looks good, but rather cheap. old school here, i like hand engraved. i have one example i had done, my trigger guard for a krieghoff. a guy named kurt horvath did it before he was a name in the field.
i paid $150 plus i had to buy the extra trigger guard. i'd hate to imagine what this tiny piece of engraving would cost now. someday i'll photograph this and show you guys.Kurt Horvath, Horvath Engravers Inc.
