    Perhaps just friends with benefits?

    Strangers. The little one's sick and the big one is pushing her to the hospital.

    Hey Colonel, looking for some extra work? If so, would you be interested in adding some checkering to the backstrap of these?

    I can do that, no problem. All I have are 20 line per inch cutters, hard to tell from the pic what the sides are checkered at, so it may or may not match perfectly but should still work fine if it close which it should be.

    Comin along. I've spent 5 or 6 hours total sanding and polishing so far I think. Probably would have been time better spent learning how to take decent pictures.

    I've also swapped out the controls and backstrap for stainless versions. Bottom pic is how it came to me.

    Coming from you Bird that means a lot.
    I've learned that the slide is not perfectly flat in the center between the bottom and where the round starts. There's an area on each side that I've had a hard time getting to. It looks like what you've described as chatter marks. The center of the slide where they reside is somewhat concave between the bottom and the round and so block sanding wasn't getting it done. I got most of it out of one side today by sanding with the edge of my block as it rode on only either the top of the bottom. A few more sessions and I should have it all out.
    So far it's all been done by hand. I don't know if I'll use my buffer because I'm not sure how far I want to take this given that I'm only doing the flats of the slide. If I can get that last bit of chattering out I'll probably wrap it up with 2000gr paper and call it purdy.
