Recently picked up a SS Colt Commander 9mm. It had been through the Briley shop in Texas. 

 

Shoots great but front strap is bare.  It's too slippery when I get sweaty.  

 

I would like to have the pistols front strap checkered but am concerned about it being an alloy receiver. How should the frame be refinished? Re anodize or have a Cera Kote like finish applied.

You can always use skate tape.  A skate board shop will sell you a sheet for a couple of dollars.
 

 If you have other work done make sure you clean clean clean.  I sent a BHP to get reblued  and the guy was lazy and you can see the outline of the skate tape.

In lieu of checkering, you could stipple it.  That's usually done with a punch, so you can adjust the size/depth of the little detents by how hard you strike it.  I've also heard of people doing this with a file, but have never seen the end result of that method.
