ultra Carry II magwell

Alright, I have an Ultra Carry II .45, I want to change the mainspring housing to one with a magwell. Not sure if Kimber's are proprietary or can I use any mainspring magwell combo available . Also since I have my kimber at the Cerakoters, I can't compare with one I have for an old 1911 GI model I have laying around, so question is, are all mainspring housings the same for GI models and Compact Officers models? Thank you for any input you can give.

I kinda figured that, so I can use any MSH for a compact/officer model from any manufacturer? Thanks for the welcome and thank you for any answers I get.

I installed this Wilson Combat MSH/Magwell on my Ultra TLE 45 and itís made for the gun but some modification was needed. So Iíll say not all fit perfectly. The problem with this one was itís rounded on the heal and the frame is straight so I had to file the edge to smooth the transition. You can see in the picture where I had to file. Itís shines on the edge. I could have went further to make it better but I canít feel the 2 sharp edges anymore so I quit while I was ahead.

I really like the feel of the WC MSH. It has excellent grip but it’s not a cheese grater. Hope you like yours.
