I have been practicing checkering on bar stock, have successfully done mainspring housings and hammer spurs, but before I tackle an expensive 1911, I want to do the work on a Russian Makarov.

My question is; I am using a 20lpi file, and in the work I have done I noticed that it cuts the diamonds very deep. Is the Makarov front strap too thin to checker at 20lpi, or would a finer file, say 30lpi be less agressive?

Thanks for the input!
