Which Magwell Profile - A or B?
The Square Bottom Magwell grips are built with two different profiles to better match the typical shape of most of the magwells available. The Continuous Profile is a constant arc across the top of the grip panel from the front edge to the back edge. This style is similar to the profile of the Smith & Alexander, Springfield Armory, most Kimbers and numerous other magwell makers. The Flat Center Profile has arches that rise up to the top of the grip from both the front and back edge and then have a flat section about 1/2" wide in the center of the grip panel. This profile is similar to magwells by Ed Brown and some Kimbers. If you have a magwell built by a manufacturer other than listed, check your magwell to see if it is a constant arc or if the magwell has a flat spot in the center of the grip panel top.
TO DETERMINE WHICH MAGWELL PROFILE YOU NEED, LOOK AT YOUR MAGWELL. IF IT HAS A CONTINUOUS ARC FROM FRONT TO BACK IT'S "PROFILE A", IF IT HAS A FLAT SECTION ON THE TOP OF THE GRIP, IT'S "PROFILE B"
Wilson Combat builds three magwells, the Bullet Proof one piece, the Speed-Chute two piece and the flange mounted Magazine Well.
The new Bullet Proof one piece magwell is a wider magwell and the Magwell Profile A grip is the best fit.
The Wilson Combat Speed-Chute is a narrow flat sided magwell. For the Speed-Chute, order a beveled bottom grip for the best fit. A Magwell Profile B grip can be used but the grip extend above the magwell. Smith and Wesson also uses a magwell of this style on several guns. We do NOT cut or bevel grips to fit the Wilson Combat Speed-Chute magwell.
The Wilson Combat Magazine Well attaches to the gun with flanges that fit on the outside of the frame and hook over the lower screw bushing. These magwells are narrower and a beveled bottom grip is the best fit. For magwells that have the flanges on the outside of the frame, the grips need to be routed on the back side of the grip panel so they will sit flat on the frame. We can provide this cut as a custom service for $30. Order must be made by phone. We cannot add the cut to a website order.
