Front Strap Checkering LPI

I thought I remembered reading a while back that Wilson was moving to 25LPI as a standard option at some point. This was probably two years ago, and I thought I remembered reading that they had enough frames on hand with 30LPI to last roughly two years. Clicking through their website I'm still seeing everything with 30LPI...

Does anyone know if they are still planning to switch to 25LPI? Or did that idea get shelved?

Thanks for any insight!

That must be the thread I saw in 2017.

My question remains- when will the 25lpi guns start showing up? As far as I can tell, everything is still 30lpi.

If you look at the 1911s for sale on their website; they are mostly 25 LPI. Description doesn’t say so but they are much bigger than 30 LPI.

You can also specify when you place your order as I believe they are defaulting to 30 LPI for certain models, e.g Hackathorn Special.

LPI on my WC

Both my Wilsons have 30 LPI (a CQB and a Hunter model). I really like the 30 LPI as it gives a good grip but you can't really feel the individual cuts at all. This is especially appreciated in the Hunter with its recoil. Wilson says that the 25 LPI is designed for some of their lightweight guns as it is stronger? Don't know what that's all about?

I sent in some specs for a quote yesterday. I requested 30 LPI front strap checkering. Wilson's reply was that they no longer offer 30 LPI frames.

I guess if you really want a 30 LPI checkered front strap you will have to resort to buying an In-Stock model already built.

Mine as well and I agree with you. My Dan Wesson has 25 LPI and personally I would rather have the 30 LPI as the 25 LPI is more aggressive than I prefer.

I am good with either one, however, the 30LPI works just fine, and given the option would go with 30 LPI.
