No not at all. I appreciate you taking the time to answer the question. And yes you have very good sight, I also counted 32 LPI checkering but I used a cheater. So with that being the case these were probably made for the DIY gunsmith? That is my guess any how. I don't know if I am brave enough to try and finish these or pass, is there a thread to finishing wood grips on the forum?Primer88 has given you some interesting information. My post concerns only pre war Govt. Model stocks. I may have misinterpreted your question in my attempt to help. If so I apologize for not reading carefully.
