I have my first 1911, a SA Supertuned with a bald front strap. I've been looking into ways to improve the grip such as add-on finger groves and the Wilson checkered front strap that secures by the grip bushings. I've decided against the above and I'm now considering stippling. I'd love to have the front strap checkered but cannot justify a $150-200 modification to a $450 gun. Is stippling a good alternative to checkering?
