    Curious-Extended Magwell and Bobtail 1911

    A friend of mine just bought a Kimber 1911 with a full size grip and the extended beveled magazine well. I thought it would be really cool if he had a bobtail installed. Is it possible to have a bobtail and the extended beveled mag well. If this is possible could someone please post a picture so that I can show him.

    Also does anyone know of any gunsmiths in the North Carolina area that could do this.

    thanks

    As of Right now i will say no becuse no one is making the Big mag well with a Bob tail setup since they shave off so much of the Mainspring housing almost 1/2 inch and same on frame no one makes a mag well for it ...

    Besides it would kind of make the purpose of the bobtailed Gun null would add more girth again to the bottom ..


    Ed brown is the only one making the Bobtail mainspring housing at this time
