Over the years, the original Chen Magwell has earned the reputation among hard core 1911 aficionados as the very finest magwell available. Its functionally elegant design elevates to a new level the shooter’s ability to quickly reload the pistol under stress, all the while remaining compact and tactically sound.
Our tactically sound, two-piece design adds a huge magazine
funnel for faster reloads without adding length or width to the pistol.
The Chen Magwell Suite™ for single stack 1911 pistols
includes both a CNC machined magwell and an intregally machined oversize
mainspring housing. It dramatically
speeds combat reloads while remaining tactically sound and minimizing bulk.
Of critical importance to tactical and competition shooters,
the front of the magwell is contoured and notched to allow the shooter to strip
a stuck magazine from the pistol.
Its advanced CAD/CAM design and multi-axis CNC machining
allows the largest possible magazine well opening while not adding any
additional length or width to the pistol, making it perfect for carry applications.
The oversize maingspring housing is integrally machined to
the internal contours of the magwell, and is cut to the rear as far as possible
to yield the largest funnel profile and easy installation. The mainspring housing also has the proprietary
BevelBlock™, a block of extra material in a key location to allow a seamless
gap-free blend with the pistol.
Magwells are fully machined from heat treated barstock, RC
28-32 for toughness and impact resistance.
No special grips are required; nearly any standard 1911 grip can be
easily modified to fit the Magwell Suite™.
Installation requires straightforward machining to the
frame. Weld/silver solder on version
requires TIG welding or silver solder.
Mainspring housings are flat and smooth.
Complete, detailed instructions are included. 100% MADE IN THE USA.
