SVI makes a slide like that, maybe you could talk to them. I believe they called it a Tiki or something like that. It was a double trench affair, but they do all sorts of crazy machining so might...

I think you don't see that setup too often because they are opposite goals in a sense. Generally, the bobtail is meant to cut the corner to make the gun easier to conceal. Meanwhile the magwells...
