There are many posts on this subject in the LB sub-forum. The choices are many, I prefer Ed Brown 2 piece however...
There a no drop in magwells for LB pistols. All magwells will have to be adapted to fit the LB. With time and patience it can be done. Otherwise, send it back to Les so that one of his guys can do the job for you. Good luck and keep us posted.

Stan Chen's SI magwell is the absolute best dollar value right now.
The S&A magwells are decent for their cost.

Most likely, nearly 99% it won't fit without fitting. I had to wallow out the holes on my 2 S&A's to fit my hillsdale SRP and my Le Claire UTC 9.

The Stan Chen I have on my Valor would have needed the same plus the "rails" filed down as well.

I like the longer length of 1 pc magwells and don't care for 2 pc. Baer only offers an Ed Brown 2 pc from the factory.

This Wilson piece may be your best option, unless you want to hog out holes or send it to a Smith for proper fitting.

I installed a Techwell on my .45 Premier 2 and have another for my 9mm P2.

The Baer frame is longer than most below the grip bushings. Probably going to have to massage any magwell you get.

The techwell magwell on my utc required about 5 file strokes on one mounting ear to fit. Super easy.

The one on my hemi dropped right in. Iíll try to upload a pic later.

Likewise, on my LBCC.

Haven’t had that problem before. Is the pin inserted all the way? Looks proud on the right side.
