    Does anyone make a 1911 Officer's sized mainspring housing in Chainlink?

    I've looked everwhere for a mainspring housing to replace the plastic one in my Kimber. I really want a chainlink one, possibly a magwell. Problem is, it seems that all I can find is checkered ones. The plastic checkered one on the Kimber really irritates my side when carrying. I really don't want to have to wear an undershirt every time I carry it. I also don't really want a smooth mainpring housing. Anyone know where I might find one. Currently I have looked at Fusion, Kimber, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, and Ebay with no luck.

    Yes, I forgot to put that on my list. I've already ordered the Fusion housing. I guess I'll just have to buy one of those Wilson Combat magwells and paint it silver.
