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 has to be the work of a Glock Fanboy. :wow:

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.

Its not the same guy. Gander Moutain here in Lansing had a old Colt with a similar stippling job(looked like shxt) It looked like someone with a hot nail got drunk and made 10-15 dots on the frontstrap. The price of the colt....$2500.00
AND It is no longer there....

That guy needs to be shot, with that gun! What a shame...I wouldn't care if it was on a cheap Taurus or something, but a Rem Rand? Come on!!!

A li'l JB Weld, some sand-paper and a can of shake & bake, and no one will ever know!

had my Hi Power stippled since my smith told me checkering was not advised due to the thickness of the steel. it looks fine.

And I should have read a few more posts....#14

Bruce Gray has an article he worte about a checkering job he fixed. He cut away a lot of the grip and then installed one of those add on checkering pieces Wilson sells. It turned out pretty well.

A patient 'Smith with a tig could fix this rather easily.

Or just do some more stippling to hide the bad job. Kind of like tattooing over a bad tattoo...

Old style smiths used to use a hammer and file to stipple.
Using the hammer to drive the teeth of the file into the steel of the gun.

Here's a pic before having the Kart barrel flush crowned, adding a magwell and new MSH and hardchroming. It was a ugly mofo, but it was and still is a shootin' sumitch. :cool: :thumbsup:

Comparing a professional stipple job to this guys work is like comparing a tattoo by a professional artist to a prison tattoo.

Not to mention the professional job comes without all the raping.
