I noticed Robar and a few others that actually build up some sort of polymer on top of a plastic frame. What do they use? Some special type of resin or bondo??:confused:

I'd like to build up a customized trigger guard.

They use very specialized plastic welding technology.

Very few resins or "Bondo" will stick to the engineering-grade plastics guns are made from.
They "build up" the parts by actually welding more plastic on much like steel can be welded onto steel to build it up.

That's cool that they can weld plastic, but uncool that I cannot.
