The Alpha Dog “Gen 4/5 Squares ” Laser Stippling for Glock s a medium-high aggressive texture. It uses the factory Glock Gen4/5 square texture and increases the coverage area. We also wrap the texture a full 360 degree around the grip and increases the height of the squares. This medium – high aggressive texture has a roughness that enables a very secure purchase when grasped and can have a tendency to irritate the skin and/or damage garments when carried concealed. It provides a “stock” look with a much enhanced grip texture.
Laser Stippling differs from traditional stippling in that it is applied with a Laser instead of a soldering iron. As such, it is very precise and has a OEM look and feel. Numerous factors contribute to a successful Laser stipple. Of course, a proper laser type is required. In our case we use a 40W Fiber laser which has 3D capability. This enables us to perform 360 degree wraps on the compound surfaces of the Glock frame. Most lessor lasers can only stipple on relatively flat planes, like the sides of the grip only.
As with all of Alpha Dog’s stippling, this pattern can be adapted for any make/model BLACK Glock frame and is 100% applied by laser. Frame modifications such as finger groove removal, single undercut, double undercut and control cuts can be added to your laser stippling order, in addition to Cerakote.
NOTE: We can only laser stipple BLACK Glock frames. We can not laser stipple colored Glock frames or other polymer frame makes/models. All OEM colored Glock frames and other brands polymer frames are made from a material that requires a different type of laser than the one we use.
