GUNSMITHING - HAND CHECKERING OF A PISTOL // 1911 Front Strap Checkering for Safety and Looks

Published on May 23, 2021
Are you sick of your 1911 slipping in your hands because of a smooth front strap? Let me show you how I do a 1911 front strap checkering job. Yea I do hand checkering on my guns instead of doing it on a mill.

There are only a few gunsmithing tools you will need to complete this pistol hand checkering project. You can find more about these on my website. Basically, you will need a Checkering Jig, Checkering File and some sandpaper. I used a 25LPI Checkering File on this 1911a1 Frame. This is a steel frame and they are much harder to checker than an aluminum frame.
