    There are a lot of different types of stippling out there in the 1911 world. Each one unique to the Smith that holds the hammer. Stippling isn't anything new as it's been around for a long time. As a lower cost alternative to checkering. While still adding some grip to your gun. For the most part it is usually a lot more forgiving on the hands than checkering. Especially if you shoot a lot of rounds. But with the variety of options you have to choose from now for a front strap treatment. Stippling has seemed to fade in popularity and be a bit out of style. For me I will always like stippling and enjoy doing it guess I am old school. To me if stippling is done well it not only adds grip to your gun but creates an appealing pattern that blends into the gun. stipple iphone.jpg Mainspring stippling 1.jpg para stippledeepen.jpg

    When they charge by the "Stip" (singular of stipple) it can add up in a hurry!!

    Your work is quite impressive sir.

    I have a NightHawk GRP Commander that’s stippled. Definitely has a unique feel to it.

    Thank you for the compliment. Looks like they used a triangle shaped punch to get a fairly aggressive texture on your Nighthawk. How does it feel on your hand?

    ‘Grippy’
    Not quite as rough and not quite as smooth as most checkering. Kinda right in the middle.

    I can understand stippling on a BHP that doesn't have much material on the front strap, but a 1911 is more apt to checkering, I don't like either on my guns though, plain steel is fine with me.

    That is some very nice looking stippling. Probably the best I’ve seen.
    Do you offer this service?
