I'm no expert but I've looked into that before on some guns myself. If the serrations are cut like the old days, that is to say a v style notch, not too deep and are a particular lpi like 20 or 25 then they could be chased with a checkering file. If they are machined such as with a ball end mill then, no. Ultimately you could have the front strap welded up and cut back then checkered as well. Whatever you choose, good luck!

Looking at a Colt Gunsite pistol, but I hate the front serrations.

Can they be checkered over?

Anybody done it?
I think that depends on how much material there is on the front strap. You could call the Smithy at Gunsite as he’s probably the guy who built the pistol.

Throw a couple pictures up and there may be some folks who can provide a more informed answer for you.

Shouldn’t be that difficult to get cut on a mill.
Are you wanting a particular LPI?
Matching the lpi of the existing serrations would be kinda cool.....may have to look into this idea.
