About a week. :cool: I don't know what all the hubbub is about wait times on semi-customs. :dunno:


























:tongueout: I bought it used from the original owner.

Should be stopping by Alex's shop Thursday afternoon, if I can make it in time and pick up a set of thin black GI logo Alumagrips and have him install some thin grip bushings and a silver 3 hole trigger in it. :cool:

It's actually less aggressive than the 20LPI on the TRP. Feels really good.

The Rogers Springer or Rogers Commander will fill that role.
Thinking of a full size in 9mm

Very true. It sounds worse than it is. It actually feels as good as any checkering out there. 30LPI is better than nothing, but is pretty tame. I lean towards 25LPI in most cases. Personally, I like the 20LPI offered by SA, but the GC 15LPI really kind of takes the cake when it comes to checkering IMO.

Does GC bring down the peaks of the checkering so as not to be so sharp as the TRP?

I don't know exactly, but it isn't nearly as sharp and pointy as the TRP checkering.

Nope,....it's all about LPI. Less lines per inch equals less of an
angle for each pyramid. This, in turn, equals less "sharp or pointy"
feeling grip treatment.........make sense?

Wouldn't the sharpness of the peak or angle also depend on the height of each pyramid?

I don't know the geometry behind it, but the GC 15LPI checkering is very grippy, yet not "cheese graterish". I guess you'd just have to hold and shoot one to fully appreciate it really. :dunno: I will say that it's a great feeling checkering pattern. :thumbsup:

I like that term "cheese graterish". Nice add to the collection. When I saw the gun posted on addicts I knew you were all over it. I could see you just badling the demons on whether to get it. Haha. Nice pick up.

Here's what 15lpi grounded down. My favorite, this far.

Guncrafter uses a 90 degree checker, Springfields looks closer to 60 degrees so it feels sharper. Both take them to a sharp point and both have ruined me for anything less aggressive.:wavey:

beautiful gun Joe.:cool:

Well boys and girls, I stopped by Guncrafter today and had a great visit. :supergrin: Got to be given a firsthand look at the whole operation and it was awesome. I was like a kid in a candy store. :rofl: Picked up a set of black GI logo Alumagrips for the SS NN and the Model 1. As well as having a new silver 3 hole trigger installed in the SS NN. Got to shoot a Model 1 .50GI with a silencer, which was EXTREMELY cool! :cool: And took my SS NN out back to the range and got embarrassed by Alex, shooting the plates, as he shot lefty one handed (his right arm is in a cast at the moment) and made it look easy while I two handed it. :embarassed: What a great guy and a very cool setup located in a beautiful place up in the Ozark mountains. Everyone there, including Mrs. Guncrafter, were as nice and hospitable as could be. Great bunch of folks. Also got to see some VERY cool one offs and future guns in the works, that all I will say is,... I'm not done buying Guncrafters. :cool: I will say that Alex has definately been listening to the desires of his patrons. There are going to be some very exciting things coming out of Guncrafter in the future. Also got to fondle Alex's .50GI Ruger Vaquero built by Hamilton Bowen, and finished by Turnbull. Beautiful! I'll post up some pics of the Bowen and the canned .50 later this evening.

Thanks for sharing about your visit. Very cool to see, and hear, about Guncrafter's success.

Would love to shoot that .50GI, with or without the can :)

I love, love bobtail 1911s. That thing is sweet. I don't have the tools to do it myself and can't justify spending the money for shipping. I'm just waiting until I get moved near where a qualified smith lives.

Until then, I'll just drool.:supergrin:

Yeah, it was an awesome day. Spent over 3 hours with Alex just shooting the bull, checking out his shop and all kinds of VERY cool guns and then shooting some guns at his range with him. Great day! Made my weekend before the weekend even really began. :cool: Shooting the .50GI with a can was an awsome experience to say the least. That whole group up there are a bunch of really great people. :thumbsup:

However, about five hours west are Springfield, RRA, Armalite, and Les Baer.
