Stippling help

Couldn't find a "sticky" for this. Just acquired nice RWS 75 10meter airgun that needs grip stippling re-done, forend stippling is intact and looks similar to Anschutz stippling. Any suggestions as to what process, tools, SPI- (stippling per inch) punches to use?

Find "Fuzzy Limey" - usually can catch him on the CZ subforum. He's done quite a bit through the years!

I was looking for the same information, thinking of using a stippling punch (available from Brownells) when I came across an article somewhere suggesting using a sharpened finish nail or a drywall screw. I tried it on a piece of scrap wood and it worked but was really slow. My project was a set of smooth grips for a Smith and Wesson 41, it would have taken me forever to get the results I was after. The other method suggested was to use a small ball shaped cutter and a Dremel tool. I tried that and it worked great in a fraction of the time. Just make sure to use the smallest cutter size they make, otherwise it gives a sort of golf ball texture. Practice scrap wood to get the technique down first. I don't know how well it will match the stippling you already have but it's worth a try if you have access to a Dremel. PM me if you would like a pic of the finished product. Good luck.

get several drywall screws, touch the point to grinding wheel, make several differant width points, grind down the sharp threads as well or wrap in tape, use a very light weight hammer to strike like 4oz or a hardwood dowel
draw a patturn on a scrap of wood and learn how to work up to the line, then do a bit then switch up to differant punch, stippiling is totally random patterns, last item, dont try to go to deep with punch, less is usally better
