    What other alternatives to checkering for the front strap and the backstrap/main spring housing can be done on a 1911?

    It should be comfortable to hold, functional, yet aesthetically pleasing, and can be done by local gunsmiths, and should blend with front/rear cocking serrations on the slide.

    Suggestions please.

    anay finish? :) wala ako maisip
    I like skateboard tape as well kaso masakit sa mata to some people

    30lpi checkering works great looks good , di masakit sa kamay di tulad ng 20lpi but might damage clothing

    Some use strippling as an alternative to checkering. That golfball texture is quite expensive, I heard.

    I use the 3M tape designed for bathtubs. Sandpaper-finish tapes usually 'sheds' grits of tiny particles (sand?) that may potentially scratch the finish.

    This 3M bathtub tape seems very similar to the stippling Novak makes on their Hi-Powers. What I like about it is it's transparent; and it takes the color of the frame. So it doesn't matter if the frame is black, stainless, hard chrome, etc.; it'll always look good. I've had my reservations before on stick-on tapes on handguns, but this one is definitely an alternative for me.

    Check it out: it's around 700 bucks a roll at any ACE hardware.
