Everything P'wrench shows is a graduate level course in smithing.

Actually, the nipple effect reminds me a lot of medieval armor in some ways, almost like studded leather armor or studded chainmail.

Hell, you could probably still learn something, even if your 80!

Another weld on magwell- Chris, Jason and now Chuck; all the rage right now.

Also nice to see Jim Milks name. He is a good guy who does excellent work.

I'm sure partly driven by Stan Chen magwells being
'out-of-stock' for ages!

I like that style of magwell a lot.

But, not a cheap job when done well.

Not cheap, that's a fact Chuck. For me it seems like a perfect magwell install takes forever. Love yer pics bro!

Maybe I missed it but is there anything similar to Stan Chen's mag well out there? It's a great part but like you said, it's always out of stock.

Dave,

I think both EGW and Briley make a weld-on magwell.
Barry Greyson (BJG-1911) may have some old stock of Ed Browns.

Or get some 1/4" plate and get to cutting!

Ah! I thought there was a new one on the market that I missed!

Understatement much Chuck? Turned out beautifully.

Sigh, someday. My Springfield needs one of these...

Amazing Chuck. I'd say that your work has a "from the factory" look, but that would be overly generous to some manufacturers.

More outstanding work. The lines, seams, fit and finish--all incredible.
