Mr. Chen, I know this is an old post, can you give me a weight on the unit one magwell? I think this is the one you are refering to in this thread. I am building a frame for USPSA single stack with a weight limit of 43 oz. I am at a completed weight now with magazine, of 41.7 oz with an aluminum mainspring housing. I know I will recover some weight when I cut the frame.

Also, which do you prefer for attachment, TIG weld or silver solder? If solder, what specific type? I am leaning towards a Black Nitride finish, which requires 1000-1100 degrees of heat, so the solder should be able to withstand this. Hard chrome would be a second choice.
