Smile My 1911 ground-up project

I picked up a stripped Foster Industries frame at a local gun show on a whim. I put in little bits of time here and there, no rush on any of it, just learning. There was a decent amount of metal work, had to buy a few specific tools, but the finished product turned out tremendously better than I could have hoped for. The Cerakote on the frame is the only part I used my gunsmith for. It shoots very well, I couldn't be more pleased with it.

Looks good. How useful is the scallop in the left grip?

I don't miss it when I handle my other pistols that don't have it, but it's comfortable where it is.
