Wilson Combat - Checkering Strip Front strap

Got 3 quotes for a front strap checkering job on my PC II. Decided that was just to much for me. So I ordered ($9.95 Amazon) the Wilson Combat Checkered Strip. It does not look as good as having it done professionally but IMHO, it doesn't look bad either and I'm happy with it. The important thing is it works. It gives me the feel I was looking for. It was easy to install even for me! I have not shot with it yet but reviews indicate it stays put with just the grip holding it in place. I will be checking out that claim Friday. Here's what it looks like.

The WC front strap works for me too. On my Remington R1S. Just ordered one yesterday from my New Colt Defender in black.

Several members are using that Wilson product. I think after shooting you will find it does the job it was designed to do and for a cheap price.

Mammoth grips with stick-on checkering?

I agree that would be bad Phil. But the mammoth grips are on the 9 mm and the Wilson combat strap is going on the 45 with the Crimson trace grips.

I presume the WC strap is going to accommodate the CT?

I put them on a couple of my 1911's years back and have never had a problem with them, they work like the real thing.

Hm. Coming from my SCC, my main gripe about my MCP is the lack of any front strap checkering. I think I'm going to order one of these.
