    Magwell for Kimber 1911

    Anyone know a great 1911 pistolsmith in southern Indiana who can properly fit a magwell to a 1911? Also, ideas on what manufacturer/model is best. I would prefer something my Wilson/rogers mags will still work with.

    I would just get one of these Chen Custom 'shooter installed' magwells, they are designed to match up closely with existing beveled magwells so you might not even need a gunsmith.

    Smith & Alexander is my go to. There is usually no fitment involved past trimming on the grips depending on what grips you have or get.
    Brownells.

    The only issue with S&A's is while they are easy to install, on factory beveled guns the S&A's overhang the original beveled magwell and look unfinished unless they are blended albeit that is just a cosmetic issue and may only bother me. S&A's been around for years and they usually worked just right on Colt's but they haven't really kept up with the times and changing factory frames. I can't believe they are 100.00 now, been awhile since I ordered one!

    I always blend. Yeah it bothers me but not sure what the Kimber has. Not a Kimber guy.
    The Chens are new to me.
