One of the negative attributes about checkering (especially 30 LPI) is that it is more delicate and prone to denting and clear visible damage.
I'm just wondering though, is this actually a common occurance in the real world? Will one drop of a gun to the concrete from 3-6 absolutely damage 30 LPI checkering, and if so how bad is the damage in most cases?

I really do like the way 30 LPI looks, but I would not want it if it really is that easily damaged.

Hey Ken,

I think a drop of 3 - 6 feet onto concrete is going to damage any part of the gun that makes contact! (muzzle, sights, finish, etc.)



Ken, this little gadget's got your name all over it! :wink:

Hahaha...hmmm...I think I'll just risk dropping my gun :b

Hey Dane...I forgot to ask you when I spoke to you last...does hard chrome give checkering a slight added margin of protection?
Thanks!
