Thinking about putting a magwell on my new Sig 1911. It currently has CRimson Trace grips. Which would be better or easier a standard magwell or a one piece magwell/mainspring housing?

The mainspring housing is much better than a standard magwell. The Tecwell is the best, however.

Mainspring\magwell combo for sure. Much better fit in my opinion.

I put a Wilson Combat drop in well on a SA. I have to carve out the back of the grips so they seat right. Its a beating.



Get a Ed Brown (snakeskin is awesome) or Wilson MSH w/ magwell.

I put the Techwell on my Dan Wesson..
I like it a lot.. has held up great

This is the TGO version and with the aluminum grips..
I run the G10 with thumb relief to get to the magazine release button easier now..

It's barely better than no magwell.

Put a Smith and Alexander on my Kimber 1911. Easy install and fabulous fit.

How will my Crimson trace grips fit with the addition of a magwell? Do you normally have to trim grips?

Just depends. The 1911 platform is not plug and play most of the time stuff has to be hand fit. That is what makes it the gun it is.

Usually they will need a little trimming.
