they do hand checkering for 300 i think

and machine checkering that looks exactly like colt for 200

then 100 to refinish frame ( their guy Gio, did them for colt originally)

Not sure if it will kill any value ( more than likely will) seeing its a usmc stamped and getting harder to find 1  :dunno:

Who does the front checkering.

I would leave the front strap alone on that one.

If it's really USMC issue (or at least the same production run), then why mess with it?  The front-chequering doesn't add that much utility.  Save the $300 for something else.

These USMC 1911s are perhaps the coolest 1911s Colt ever made.

Just plain cool.
