    Compact 1911 magwell/ grip extender?

    I know this is a crazy thought, but I really like my compact 1911, but I would like to have full size grips on it. I know, I know.....that defeats the purpose of compact, but I like what I like, right? I've searched to no avail.....anyone have any advice on a mag well extender that not only looks good, but allows the use of full size grips?
    I carry wherever I feel I need to because I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6 ANYDAY!

    Which gun do you have as in model/make. Is it a Commander or a officers sized grip. There are offerings for booth.

    Sig 1911CO-45-NI
    Sig's sight says 8rd mags, but my full size mags stick out noticeably . It came with 7 rd mags that don't lock into my full sized.

    Grip length on the Sig is roughly 3.5" and the full size length is 4.15' give or take.

    If you have a compact model there really isn't any way to make the grip 'longer', you could add a magwell but that's not going to get you much more length and it's still going to use your compact grips.
