Promag archangel magwell grips




I saw these grips at midway fairly cheap(under $30). I searched all over and couldn't find any reviews but for the price I decided to take a chance and ordered them. I just recieved them today, forgive the grainy pics my good camera is broke.

first off they are made from an aluminum alloy of some kind (cast most likely)they are 2 pieces that are held in place with the grip screws and 1 allen head screw that holds the flare portion together. the checkering is nice, not too rough but enough to be comfortable.With a nice border on them. The website said some minor fitting my be needed. they were a complete drop in on my springfield. The magwell lines up decent, they are already ambi cut. There isn't any gaps between the grips and the frame.

All in all I am very pleased with them. They look good and didn't break the bank. The only negative I could find is they are advertised as being black but they are more of a gray color.

Interesting product. Have never seen a grip/magwell combo. I have a long slide I was thinking of putting a magwell on and the magwell alone would be $80-$100 and then you have to look at the cost of full cut grips to fit the bottom of the magwell so there's another $30-$50. For what those cost, I'd say great deal. I wonder how well they'd hold a coating like Cerakote?

I was actually just looking for some different grips when I found these. I wasn't expecting much given the price and they were from promag. I was surprised how well they looked when I recieved them. I would think that would hold a refinishing fairly well. I'm not sure what finish is on them now but it looks nice and smooth. You should be able to blast them easy enough.

Sig uses the grips to form a mag-well on some of their 226's, the Tactical comes to mind and I think the X5. I had one at one time and thought it was a pretty cost effective idea.

Hogue has a similar design that they call the Extreme series.
