    With a wood burner. It's not hard, you just have to take your time and stay inside the lines. Also, pay mind to not push straight through the frame......

    :shock: You got way more guts than me! That came out VERY nice. I usually don't dig the custom grip work, but you definitely did it right. Great job!

    Thanks guys! I did sand down the frame to remove the ridges and bump from the back strap.

    Looks great.....

    ...but how does it feel?

    Maybe I should get another MA1 just to have you do the grip for me?

    :wink: :wink:

    I think it feels great. Not too aggressive, but it has a good grip service.

    Sure, I'll do frames for anybody that wants to send 'em to me.

    That looks great jetsiphon.

    Have you tried CCWing it?
    I'm worried about it grabbing my shirt and printing.

    Yep, no prob at all. I figured it'd act like the grip tape on my XD, but negative, rides just fine.

    It does look really nice. I'd never have the balls to do something like that to my weapon...great work!

    Can you give a comparison...

    shooting the Steyr vs. the Hipower. (VERY nice Hipower BTW).

    Well, comparing the Steyr to the HP would be pretty tough, kinda like comparing the Glock and 1911....

    I'm not much of a comparison writer either, so, it's proally not best to come from me. Both guns shoot great. I'm more accurate with the HP. The lighter single action trigger aids that. The HP is also the most comfortable gun in my hand.

    I'm going to work on lighting up the trigger pull on the M9, maybe that'll help out a bit more.

    Sorry :(
