Thinking of putting thinner grips on my SR1911 to better fit my small hands. I'm going to make the grip panels out of oak, think they will be a nice contrast with the stainless steel frame and black parts. Should I leave them smooth or try my hand at checkering? Can anyone recommend bushings/screws for use with the thin grips? I know Brownells and I think Midway sell some but have heard some having bad threads or they strip out easily.
