    Has anyone thought, how the checkering on the Blaser F3 can be re-pointed over time ,since it is not the normal checkering ,but pressed checkering ? Just wondering, since most of us will need to do it at some point in time ,as all checkering wears down ,for a good grip . Thanks Brian

    Re-Pointing Checkering on Blaser F3 ?

    What makes you think it's pressed checkering? Its most likely laser cut, that's what Krieghoff is using now, as is Remington. I'm not a fan of laser cut myself, I don't think you can get as many lines per inch that you can get with hand or machine cut checkering, and I don't think the diamonds come out quite as sharp either (although that might be more in how it is designed).

    Probably not. It looks like their original design was more a pattern of dots than actual diamond point checkering (kinda like the Beretta fish-scale checkering, but smaller dots). Doing a little googling, it looks like they've since gone away from this and have gone to a more traditional checkering style.
