Looking for suggestions for a magwell.....

Looking to install a mag well on my Ultra CDP and was wondering if this is even possible? I like the look and how it finishes off the pistol. If anyone has any pictures of there's with one installed please post it. Thanks!

Several choices available, depends on what you like. Smith & Alexander, Ed Brown, Wilson Combat among others. I know other members have added magwells.

This one is from Wilson Combat. Itís a one piece msh/magwell. Keep in mind it fit great except it is rounded on the butt and I had to file down the edge of the frame because it felt sharp. You can see the shine on both sides where I filed. You may not be comfortable doing this and may want something like a 2 piece from Fusion Firearms.
The Fusion is much cheaper but itís still a quality part.

Before I purchased the WC I picked up one from Ed Brown. The Ed Brown didnít fit at all. I couldnít even make it fit and eventually I screwed it up trying. I picked up the Ed Brown because I knew Marshall installed one and it fit his gun perfect. My point is...keep in mind they all just donít drop in without fitting.

I have installed two different ones on my Kimber pistols. The first one was an Ed Brown two piece mainspring housing and magwell, and the second was Smith & Alexander one piece mainspring housing and magwell. Both of mine were drop in fit and didn't require any fitting, but I understand that isn't always the case.

Have and installed several S&As. But Stan Chen has some new models that can be end user installed. These will on my future guns. Or EGW. Each can bought without the pin hole drilled so you can get that great fit and drill to match frame with no gap. Of course is is not a hand drill procedure.

Check out ebay. I just bought a FUSION & installed it on a Remington R-1. Easy install, fits & looks great.

My custom built 45 has a S&A and I’ve installed two Fusion on my Springfield 9mm and Eclipse Target 38 super and the Fusion is equally as nice. It’s a 2 piece where as the S&A is a 1 piece but I really have no preference. I’m planning on installing one on my TLE Pro soon.

One thing I like about the Fusion is the sharp checkering. I’m a huge fan of sharp checkering as it allows for a solid grip.
