I so wish you could have the older style checkering from the early guns on the later models

I've been re-cutting hammer spurs I didn't like or were poorly done from the factory like below. I just cut the poorly done checking off the now smooth one. Gives me the opportunity to try different patterns and different lpi that might appeal to me. Simple task, just takes some patience to do right.

Excellent work. I am good only at removing the checkering. Of all checkered hammers, I prefer the curvature and checkering of the Python the most. The best single-action cocker I have owned.

Have been thinking of smoothing out checkering on a hammer somewhat as shoot one handed CAS and thinking less pronounced checkering will help to roll thumb off hammer easier and keep on target better. Only problem is shoot usfa's and not sure want to do that to one of those.

Doc that hurts me just reading that you are thinking about doing it. Buy a Uberti and try your idea first :)
