    Magwell on carry gun

    If you have a Kimber Ultra CDP it probably serves as a carry gun so that small size is important. A mag well makes the grip a little longer and larger, but supposedly helps one make faster reloads. So that is the essential tradeoff - size vs. speed of mag change. Only you can answer that question for your own situation.

    I personally would leave the magwell off a carry gun so as not to increase its size. I think the odds of having to make a rapid mag change during defensive use are very small indeed. But it is your call.

    On my carry 1911s I have mag wells on ALL of them. They only add 1/4 inch, but make a huge difference when reloading.... especially while moving!

    There are many different ones available as well. Here are three different makes & styles available: left, 2-piece Wilson Combat; center S&A 2-piece; right Dawson 1-piece.

    Me too and me neither! In fact, I think it makes a good gun great having a magwell installed.

    I would look into the S&A (smith and alexander) magwell's also, they are a one piece design.

    I had one on my Tac II Pro

    I had one on my Tac II pro ... they do greatly ease reloading so I was reluctant to take it off and still have mixed feelings about it. However, to compensate for this, I've shot a few IPSC matches with it and practice speed-mag changes a lot.

    You should buy one with your carry piece. If you want later, you can take it off but try carrying with it on for a while.

    Are the magwells all a standard thickness from (top to bottom) or can you get thinner ones?

    Cool, that could be a good compromise between concealabilty and function.

    I have always carried my Ultra CDP with the stock mags with no base plate. My two reload mags are Wilson Combat mags with the 1/4" baseplate for more secure reloading. The flat based mags are much easier to conceal but take extra effort when reloading during speed shooting. I think a speed chute would be just like having the longer mags in all the time. Mike

    Iíve got a magwell on my Stinger, itís surprising how that little 1/4Ē makes the officers length grip feel more secure and it speeds up reloads.

    The magwell and Tripp 7 round officer length mags make a pretty good combination.
