    I'm in search to find a simple magwell to install on my 1911's.

    Specifically, the magazine well I'm interested in is this one installed on Cratz22's Springfield Armory 1911.

    Anyone able to tell me which magazine well it is or one like it? Thanks.

    Notice how the grip is straight cut and does not show the MSH pin. Would blending need to be required?

    With the full length grips and magazine well, I sometimes notice how the magazine well is not flush with the grip. I'm trying to find a simple magwell which the grip and magwell is flush together.

    Thanks for your help

    That mag well and probably the stocks too look like Smith & Alexander.

    Looks like an S&A to me, too.

    It looks like an S&A to me, too. I have one for my Colt, and it fits very well. There weren't any gaps between the bottom of the frame and top of the magwell. The "magwell grips with covered MSH pin" can be purchased from any number of manufacturers, including S&A. I would hope that S&A's grips would be well-fitted to their MSH/magwell combo. Their website is http://www.smithandalexander.com
    I can't comment too much about blending a magwell to a frame. Mine was blended to match the custom beveling on the frame.

    For what it's worth here's my favorite magwell. Simple and doesn't make the grip any bigger.

    Here is a couple I like. The old style Caspian Lower End with the factory bevel and all I had to do was break the inside curved front edge of the mag well. And then the S&A on EAGLE 1 that is for fun.

    It looks like the Smith and Alexander mag well, built as part of the mainspring housing. Check out Brownell's. They have a pretty good selection.
