    Custom today means you spent an extra $500 to make your gun actually worth LESS but still think you should be able to recoup 100% of the cost of the "custom" crap when you go to sell it

    I think in today's world, "Custom" means TAPCO'd and UTG'd up.

    or stippled....there's always the stippling.

    I laugh at these people on here that butcher a Glock and double the price .

    Paint don't really bother me, but defacing guns with a soldering iron ain't customizing !

    Depends on if it is a partial or full stipple job under the Krylon.
