Guncrafter's standard checking is their special 15 LPI pattern. Just going by the 15 LPI, I would guess it would be pretty hard on your hands after a range day. But most checkering patterns are not done at 90 degrees.

What would you folks say about the coarseness of their 15 LPI?

It is not sharp, but it does leave a nice print on your skin. Felt similar in grip to a frag pattern to me.
Interesting. I was thinking about the frag pattern in place of the 15 LPI to avoid sharpness.

Hopefully others chime in with more experiences. I do not own either 15lpi or Frag guns but shot both and I think the Frag may actually be a bit more aggressive.

When I compared to Frag pattern above, I was thinking more about VZ Grips versus GI front strap. Should have specified that.

My only GI has their 20lpi Carry pattern. It is definitely sharp but because it is only on the middle of the front strap it does not feel overly aggressive. Feels more like 25lpi when shooting

I have the Frag Commander. No problems with the grip being too aggressive.
That one is on my list. I like the idea that the harder you grip the better the frag pattern grabs your hand. But with a modest grip, does it still hold firm on sweaty days?

Frag gives the most grip between the two. I have a 15 LPI on a CCO and it’s really nice. I don’t see a down side too it. I recently got a set of frag grips for a CZ. They are awesome. Perfect for long range days in the summer. I haven’t experienced anything close to hand discomfort.

It's hard not to like a fine checkering job! I have 30 LPI and 25 LPI checkered guns and was thinking about something different for the next. 15 LPI at 90 degrees is different but effective. It seems as if the frag pattern is effective, too. Many other alternatives are attractive, but not effective on hot days.

My favorite checkering on any firearm I have. GCI 15 lpi rocks. Firm grab but not painful, even shooting bare handed at -5 degrees

I agree the 15 lpi is very nice. It is not sharp, but provides amazing traction. It is one of my favorite grip treatments for sure and I think it looks very attractive as well.
