I recently got a Springfiled LW Champ OD/black. Used it works perfectly, great size, love it! But was considering two things, Bobtaailing it and checkering the front strap. Which means I'd have to re coat it as well. I work with metals often and have alot of freehand experience. As well as machinery experience. However, I've never gunsmithed before. Anyone here know of any videos showing how to Bobtail a 1911 and/or checker the straps?
Any info is greatly appreciated. I could just take it to a smith but if I can do it on my own that'd be more fun and rewarding!
