The blend on my Cbob is pretty bad, but the hand blended WC GS on my custom Carniak Delta Elite is great!

Sounds good... You should think about sending it to Rob at Alchemy for some front strap treatment .
He has been doing my checkering.

Funny, I have the same project but in Stainless. Just about done checkering the front, not something I'm itching to do again but would probably be a whole lot easier the second time! Lots of parts waiting to go in, yours is looking great, I may have to round butt mine too!

Awesome,.......a stainless model would have made finishing a bit easier.
You have some serious nards doing a checker job. No way I would attempt
that.

Post a few close up pics of your work! Once again, I applaud you for your determination!

Need opinions,.........

Trying to decise on a front strap treatment, standard checker
or serrated. I do like both, I have two 1911s with serrations,
one with checkering, and a Springer getting the golfball treatment.

This Springfield Loaded does have a 25lpi checkered msh.
What do you guys think?

I would go 25lpi and you've done all this work yourself why not give the front strap a shot?

Now after looking at yours again I think I need to do more deburring and rounding...

Yeah the checkering isn't for everyone, there was definitely some times I thought maybe I was going to ruin the frame or screw up bad enough someone would notice. I don't think I'd hesitate to do another one, but I probably would do 25lpi (you don't have to go so deep) and I'd know a little better where to stop/start so that there wasn't nearly as much cleanup.

Where's the update? I had to tear mine down and keep de-horning after looking at all your pics. Just waiting to get it bead blasted now.
