This tool lets gunsmiths
and beginners alike produce precise, beautiful, professional-quality checkering
on 1911 front straps. The fixture adjusts to accept varied widths of checkering
files and guides both sides of the file to keep the lines running true.
(Use only genuine checkering files.) The horizontal border (under
the trigger guard) can also be cut by using the fixture and plastic bushings.
Investigate what gunsmiths
are charging for checkering the front strap. If you buy this tool and use
it just once, it will more than pay for itself. (Use it on your friends'
guns - even at a discount - and your fees will pay for your shooting supplies!)
Like all Marvel Gunsmithing
tools, helps you achieve better results faster and with less effort. Marvel
