BulletProof Speed-Chute Magwell Durability?

How well are folks finding their one-piece magwells hold up to constant reloads in competition and dry firing reload practice?

Does the blueing rapidly wear off the steel ones?

Do the aluminum ones suffer from gouging and scraping?

Do ArmorTuff coated ones hold up any better?

All guns wear if you use them...

Yes aluminum wears more than steel, depends on your training/dry fire schedule

Yes blueing wears faster than armor tuff, and yes armor tuff will wear if you practice enough.

Armor tuff is relatively inexpensive to redo, I wouldn’t worry about it...just shoot.

I have them on both blued and AT guns, no problems. The round butt mag well is a must for me on any Wilson. The only guns that don’t show wear are safe queens.
