    Is there any way to fix the damage to that gun or is it pretty much ruined.

    That is freaking awesome. I may have to buy something like a RO with a smooth FS so this dude can make it purty like that. :supergrin:

    That was a rather acceptable grip treatment in the sixties.

    It is a shame! It could be repaired, but cost would out weigh the worth of the
    pistol.

    The Match pistols being built by the Army back in the early 1960's were getting this treatment.

    Lots of great guns fell to the gunsmith...

    There were pictures of some of them in the Patrick Sweeney book on the hundred years of the 1911. That included some transitional models. It's a shame alright, but you have to realize when a lot of this butchery was done, these guns had no value.

    That looks a lot better than the one in the first picture.

    Here's the job on one of my pistols.

    It looks better in person.
    When done right it's really not that bad looking.

    Well James the problem is there is a professional way to do it, and a ****ty way to do it. I'm not a fan of either, but yours does look a lot better than that one.

    I completely agree! Many, many Hi Powers have had the front strap stippled.
    There are nice looking jobs & there are blotched jobs.

    Wayne Novak did quite a few that way, although his usually had a very nice border. :supergrin:

    Yeah, the HP's front strap is often not thick enough for checkering.

    JR, yours doesn't look bad. The one in the OP looks God awful.
