1 piece nhc magwell on cc




I did not care for the serated msh that came stock and wanted a checkered one. I like theloks of the nhc one and got a deal from brownells. I took about an hour filing and using a sharpie to guide me. The resaults were near perfect fit, much tighter then stock bear. The ever so slight gap dont bother me. The light and angle has to be perfect to see the gap.

Nice. I have a stack of guns with S/A magwells on them. My wallet shakes with the idea of replacing them all with NHC versions. Man they look awesome!

Thanks guys, I was pretty happy with this being my first hand fitting on the gun. The sharpie helped a lot.

Custom2: I also wanted that one but after all the reading, i did not see Wilson having them available anytime soon. WCrep made it sound like they will be over a year before they will make them available.

Crash: I was thinking about a SA and doing some hand sanding to make it look like this but got this one on sale. I was going to take a sanding belt and get it close then use a file to conture the rest.

What areas required the hand fitting with a file?

That looks very nice.

The inside, where the msh meets the spring. It kept stopping short and hitting the sring several times and o ended up filing the entire ares where the main spring is. The sides with the guides are fit perfech.
