P14 with S&A Mag Guide




Does anyone have a picture of a P14 with the S&A partial Mag Guide? I'm looking at buying one, but would love to see how it looks on the gun before I buy it.

Thanks,

NJG

Here's a bunch of photos of various guns with the magwell.

The majority of those pictures are not for a P14 and I don't believe they are all s/a. I would check brownells, the last time i saw an s/a magwell for a p14 it was garbage. It only included a small extension on the bottom off the ms housing. It did not cover the whole magwell. IMO provided very marginal benefit. Check out Dawson ice or one of he weld ons. I have 2 s/a's on single stacks, for single columns they are ok.

Wouldn't that be the "partial magwell" referred to by the OP?

If it helps, here's a picture of a Dawson magwell on my P14. You'll need the Dawson mag extensions for the mags to seat.

I am also interested, since the heel of my hand hangs over the end of the main spring housing, the Smith & Alexander msh might fit me well.

Got the mag guide and installed. It adds a finished look to the heel of the grip. Also, as stated in Saraphim38's comment, it really fits the palm of my hand better. The edge of the grip no longer digs into my palm. I'll post pictures in the next day or two.
