    Very nice information. Good pictures and well explained. Eventually, I would like to give it a try. I just have to pick up the tools and find the time to do it.

    This reminds me of a thread I saw a few years ago where a guy tried to do his own checkering and ended up totally botching the frame and made it look like complete garbage. I think it was a kimber. I can't seem to find it though.

    EDIT: Found it, but the pictures are no longer up.

    I found the pictures on google, but you can't view them full size

    the last days I've been doing some stippling tests. using (old) drill bits you get a sharper, more agressive 'stippling' than with the center punch

    There is a tool called a pnumatic file, cost 20-30 at harbor freight, you could use a punch in it instead.
