I am currently shopping for my first 1911 and I have narrowed it down to either the Kimber CDP II pro or the Pro Carry II Stainless w/ night sights. The problem is that I would like to go with the Pro Carry (price is an issue) but I am concerned about the lack of checkering on the front strap. This will be a CCW. How important is the front strap checkering (I do prefer to have it) and how hard/expensive is it to have it done after market if it is possible at all. Are there other alternatives? Thanks in advance.
