Checkering on the MK9

I was quoted a price of $100 for some checkering on the front strap of my MK9. Is this a fair price for the work???

MK9 Checkering

I paid $185 for 25lpi checkering on the front strap of my MK9. very nicely done by Scott, McDougal. $100 sounds like a very good price.

Hi denfoote,

Who quoted you the $100 price for checkering? If you get it done, let us know how it comes out.

Delrin - Did the checkering on your MK9 make a difference when firing it?

Yes, especially in the summer with sweaty hands. I have also tried the Hogue Handall slip on grip and this is just as effective for a lot less money. The checkering is definitely a lot nicer looking!

Anybody send their Kahr to Ned Christiansen for checkering or other work?
He likes to work on them. I might send him my K9.

Hasn't anybody had a Kahr checkered? Do I need to be the first?

I've done a few at 40lpi. They come out very nice - good gripping surface, low snag potential under clothing and in ankle holsters. I went through the orders in house now, and everything's getting stippled, so I can't show you a picture, but ther look like this, only smaller.

Thanks Ted.
Can you either email me or post here to let me know the cost on this and also the time frame?
I guess 30LPI would be too coarse in your opinion?

Email sent, Harry -
It's not that I consider 30 lpi to be too coarse, it's just that good checkering is sharp, and 30 seems more likely to tear up clothing, car seats, momma's sofa, and anything else it has the opportunity to abrade. 40 lpi seems a little more surface friendly, and still gives a good texture to the grip.
