    SC customer service

    Posted by Stephen Smiley on Nov 2nd 2021

    Although the product I wanted was out of stock for some time, this is common with many vendors in these crazy times. SC's customer service was excellent throughout, keeping me updated on the the ETA of the parts I wanted, and getting me through the process to be an "approved installer" for the Gen 2 magwell. Once the parts were in, shipping was very quick. The extra "goodies" packaged with the parts was a fun bonus. Overall a great company to deal with.

    Gen 2

    Posted by Jimmie Chambers on Oct 28th 2021

    This is the latest time I've ordered the magwell and not received pins or springs. It would great to know if you are no longer providing them so I can just buy some and keep them on hand. It's a real pain in the butt to get the magwell in and then have to wait several days to get the rest of the parts from someone else to finish a gun build. I do love the magwell though Stan. Keep designing cool products brother. ~Joe

    Posted by Steven Owens on Oct 21st 2021

    As always Stan and Libby go out of their way to get a quality product out in a timely manner. I appreciate the craftsmanship, attention to detail, but the real deal is when you get that along with a great customer service experience every time. Can't say enough good about the products and the Family. Just great folks all the way around.

    I just installed the Stan Chen beaver tail grip safety on my 1990 Colt Series 80 Government Model. The frame had already been cut to a .250 radius, so only minor fitting was required. I must say this is the most comfortable, natural fitting grip safety I have ever seen. Sensitising it was easy as well. I whole heatedly endorse all of the Chen products. After over 30 tears of using 1911s, both for CCW and LEO carry, there in NONE that has the quality of the Chen line! Excellent in every way.

    What can one say. The Gen2 Magwell is in a class all its own. The part, customer service and the entire SCC team is a joy to deal with.

    gen 2 magwell

    Posted by David S. on Jan 8th 2021

    This product lives up to the hype I have read about on various forums, it was easy to install and the fit is perfect, really it is, the only place that needed any work was the inside radius where the magazine goes, I needed to file and polish about .010: to make a perfect blend, I will be getting another in stainless.

    Gen2 + Kimber = Made in Heaven

    Posted by Scott Denzin on Dec 14th 2020

    Stan, I cut the frame last night for the Gen2, and while I did not have the complete instructions your first paragraph in the installation instruction said it all. "this is probably more than you need." How true this was. Truly the .125 "shelf" cut is really what brings this all together and securely stabilizes everything to the frame. A good piece of engineering there. While it is nice to have some of the more specialized tooling to do this I found that with some old school setup this was not hard at all. Keep up the good work and I look forward to installing some more of these magwells.
