Very nice work.
My 1911s are checkered-front, back, and front-of-triggerguard-but your stippling looks extremely nice, and it wouldn't dig into the hand-flesh like my checkering does.

It is easier on the hands. It still increases your grip without being painful after a 100 rounds. Checkering can be made less painful by blunting the points. But most people leave the points sharp as its the sign of a quality checkering job.

That looks to be a good job. Well done.

Yeah.
The checkering on two of my 1911s was blunted, but it still "grabs" my skin.
The third was left sharp for control, because it's a "shortie."

While not as well done and pronounced as yours, I had a Browning High Power that I wanted some texture on the grip. I experimented using different ways of doing so and came up with this using files and a mallet. I have since done 10 different guns for different people that I know.



This is a buddies CZ I did for him



I used these and a hard plastic mallet.
