Very nice job and it sure looks as though it will keep a synthetic stock from sliding in your hands.

Grip Textured Shotgun

If you were closer I would bring you my competition shotgun to have you do some work on it. That looks great.

That is cool. Now that would be cool to have on my AR stocked shotgun on the pistol grip, and forend.

Not only does it look good but more important, very functional. We often overlook that point. ....

Guess I'll be the first to ask; Did you stipple it or is that an adhesive tape application??

Looking forward to your future replies .....

Be Safe !!!

Couple of questions...

Does that squared off pump allow better grip? Looks like the texturing there is only used by the fingertips.

Are you using screw drivers and a hammer to remove those pins?

What are those grips made of? Looks extremely agressive...

Whats the shotgun being built for?

I believe it is stippling, it certainly looks like it is at least.

Definitley has a good grip too it. doubt you can lose a grip even with wet or sweaty hands.

That is stippling, i like the adhesive tape but it tends to come loose over time.

The Squared off forend on the shotgun does provide a great benefit in grip, the way i have it set up the forend provide grip to you 4 fingers on one side and grip to your thumb and part of the palm of your have so you have a fairly good amount of grip.

i dont think anyone should ever use a screwdriver to remove pins unless you want to deform them, i use strictly punches.

The grips are stippling of the actual stock and foregrip

The shotgun is bieng built for display at gunshows along with other projects i plan on doing to promote my business.

Just a little update, i took the trigger assembly apart on this project and polished everything smooth to clean up the trigger pull, not looking to lower any weight just clean the grit out of it. im not a fan of trigger jobs on shotguns. here are some before and afters for you guys.

Shotgun trigger jobs.

Understood and appreciated. The only exemption I had, was the spare trigger group on my 1100 when converted it slugs during the deer season. I have also done trigger work, on SildeLocks and that's a bit different. ....

You may not be a fan of trigger jobs on a shotgun, but that turned out really nice. Did it drop the #'s much or did it mostly smooth up the pull? Nice stippling job.
