Default Stippled mags

Has anyone out there tried to stipple their magazines? Thinking of doing the indented areas. My only concern is screwing up (damaging how it feeds) the mag. I guess a light touch, and careful not to melt/burn all the way through. Anyone??

For what purpose?

Holding the magazine when firing is an excellent way to induce stoppages in this and the 5.56mm version.

I don't get it either. Perhaps some people might have too much free times.

I think he means for grip to and from the gun. Someone on here did their grip. Looked good, do a search, should come up.

Default Why do anything...

Why does anybody change anything, all kinds of reasons....maybe they are bored, they want a different look, how about so it works better for them, etc. Thats why there are companys out there making aftermaket products, Magpul,Tapco, UYG, to name a few. Stippling the mags.... I'm just looking to get a better grip when handling them and yes I know not hold the mag when firing the rifle. Please excuse me for the rant, but from what I have read (on this web site and others) most people have do one thing or another to their rifle.

I'd say give it a try. Sounds like it'd look cool. And if you screw up really bad, a new mag is only $15.

I'm with Chuck! Adjust your support grip up on the lower, don't use the mag as a support grip. Bad technique.

Need a vert grip...try a grip pod.

Aim small,

He already clarified that he knows better than to do that, why dont you read before you criticize.

To the op go for it, I stippled all of my p-mags for my ar and have been more than happy with the results just havent gotten around to doing the 15-22 mags yet. It has provided me with a better feel for and grip on the mags during quick mag changes, and mag changes under stressful situations. Quite a few of the guys from local swat teams and tactical shooting schools that I shoot with have had me stipple their p-mags as a result of seeing/using mine.

Because stippling EVERYTHING seems to be the new tacticool fad these days.

As far as holding by the magazine, I grip my 15-22 from the magwell with my ring and pinky fingers on the magazine body and have NEVER had a stoppage while shooting like that.
