Now that I've had a chance to shoot it a bit, and have found it to be quite a slippery little sucker, I'm considering having the front strap of my BHP checkered. Problem is, that's where the serial # is located. Who would be able to locate the number elsewhere on the frame? What method is generally used for this (electro-etch, stamping, etc..)?

I'm having Cylinder and Slide do some other things to it and figured they could do the checkering while it's there. I think they require the SN to already be re-located before they do the checkering.

Sounds like a pain in the ass/potential nightmare to me. Nevermind on that, I guess. I'll try to find some grip tape.

Why not just checker around it and incorporate it in the design?

JoeMc, that would be my first choice. I just figured it would be a lot more complicated (i.e. EXPENSIVE!) to have to work around it like that. If you know of someone who could do it that'd be great.

I don't see the extra expense unless them trim around the serial number with some engraved scroll work.
