Here is a checked not checked puzzle.   These are grips off of a second generation Colt that had been modified long ago for fast draw. The grips are numbered with last 3 numbers of serial of gun so pretty sure came from factory.  But did they come smooth or did someone remove the checkering?

Right you are, Sir Chas. - with a small exception.  The Selleck grips have a "Private" stripe in the center.  (Private as in Military rank)

Johnny M's have the same large checkering that looks so cool.

Thanks for the kind words Gents.

I did try to make this Pistol look like the one Tom Selleck used in the "Last stand at Saber River". It's one of my favorite Pistols and I keep it in a separate case. One of my winter projects will be making this style of grip for my 1873 SAA's.

Just put a set of black checkered polymer on my Taylor Cattleman which I ordered straight from Taylors. While I like the look of the wood ones that came on it, I found them kind of slippery.

I shoot duelist and replaced the smooth rosewood Ruger grips with checkered horn on my vaqueros. I put patterned micartas on my Ruger birdsheads. I like checkered walnut on my colt and smith double actions and 1911s. I shoot them duelist too. Here's 2 nice uns.
