Caspian built in magwell - do you like it?

I've put a msh with a magwell on both my 1911s. I have big hands and they improve my grip. Is the built in Caspian magwell frame the same length as a standard frame or is it as long as one with an added magwell? If you have one do you like it?
Thanks,
Jeff

My Race Ready frame is the same length as my Springfield with an S&A mag well.

They are as long as an add-on (you can use standard grips).
It's the only magwell I own, so it's better than not having a magwell, in terms of ease of reloading, but I don't like the added length for anything but range wear.

Thanks for the responses. I'm considering a Caspian frame for a dedicated receiver for my Nelson .22 conversion. I think the race ready frames look really cool.
Regards,
Jeff

Keep in mind you'll want to use Caspian's extended Race Ready mainspring housing if you don't want it looking goofy.

I believe the RR comes with the appropriate mainspring housing.

If I were to buy a new match gun, it would be on that receiver to save the extra pieces parts and blending.

No a fan of these because you have to use a non-standard mainspring housing. So you are back into a corner on the variables of this main part.

I shoot Bullseye Matches and I.D.P.A. And it guides the mag in perfect for me.

I have the recon frame with the tactical mag wel. Been using it for over a decade and I really like it. I prefer the ability to strip a mag out of the piece to clear a malfunction and the cut out front of the tactical mag well allows this.
