25 LPI Front Strap

I sold my TRP because I didn't like the feel of the 20 LPI front strap. I was thinking about getting a DW ECO but it has a 25 LPI front strap. How does the feel of 25 LPI compare to the 20 LPI ? I ask the question because there are none in my area so i will have to buy it without holding it first . I made that mistake buying the TRP but I only lost $50 selling it.

Not nearly as aggresive. I own both and speak from experience.

The TRP is not only 20LPI, buts its deep and sharp 20lpi.

The lines per inch don't tell the entire story.

Yeah I have a TRP and when I first got it I thought it was rather aggressive. Today I was holding it and have noticed it does not seem as aggressive. My S&W has 25Lpi and seems much smoother for sure, but regardless I will never get rid of my TRP. Actually I plan on getting one in stainless...

Yep, 25 LPI is much less aggressive.

Too late now, but a wide fine file will fix that coarse sharp checkering right up.
My frontstrap with flattened 20lpi checkering is now one of my favorites.

I have the TRP and I have the Scorpion which is 25LPI and I can tell you that the Scorpion feels really REALLY good in my hands. In my opinion the 25LPI on the Sigs are PERFECT!

I like the TRP's front strap.

I LOVE the Guncrafter Industries' front strap.

True words. Varies from pistol to pistol. I disliked 20 on my SA at first. Lightly touched with emery board and I love it.

Just got in a hand checkered Baer with 20 and I think it's crap compared to my SA

I think the Guncrafter's 15lpi is one of the best front straps around.

I agree if we're talking checkering only. But golf ball is the overall best front strap treatment IMO.

Are you sure your talking about the CCO and not what ever their other model is called? I had the DW CCO, and it had the the scales like ED Brown, in fact i think it is an EB.
