Very good job on the 'meshcut' front strap on a P35 Chuck - Wow, I really like that! It looks plenty grippy too! Are the P35 front strap thicker there than a modern day Colt?

Only in the middle. The edges can be as thin as .030 at the corner of the magwell. sometimes less.
This dictates what you can or cannot do in a frontstrap treatment.
Its not super grippy,but the texture does make a difference.

Very nice! Why don't more BHP builders go beyond stippling the front strap? Is it simply that the materal thickness won't support the machine ( or hand) cuts we are used to seeing on 1911s, from serrations to chain links and scallops?

Not that there is anything wrong with stippling. I find this quite beautiful and wonderfully utilitarian:

That's where the serial number is, Josh; looks like Chuck's discreetly blurred it out.

The compound radius of the front strap and very thin corners, don't leave a lot of room for error.
Meshcut frontstraps are not super grippy, but better than stock.

There will be others in the very near future.... :D

Like Chuck says, not super grippy, just a little extra traction, along with the indexing feature that lets you know your hand is where it is supposed to be. I don't find that I need as much traction on a HP as I do on the 1911. The larger radius across the front strap, along with the caliber, are the main reasons there, I suspect.
