I posted about this new acquisition last week, and the only thing at that time that I'd replaced were the grips with some SA factory takeoffs that I had.

Since then I fit a new Wilson Combat safety that didn't stick out as far as the competition one it came with, and thought I'd try these UV printed faux stag grips I found on Amazon (also available on eBay). I was inspired by David Mills's custom gun in Se7en.

Before and after pics.

Who did the front strap checkering on the stainless?
Upon close inspection of the photo, it looks like one of those thin aluminum slip on checkered front strap. You wrap it around the front strap and is held in place by the grips. Had one of those a couple of decades ago.

There is a reason why they don't come up often. There was a reason why I tried one for a short time and discarded it.
