One more question on 1911 mods

Recommended Posts

How much can I open up the mag well in my 1911? I see in the rules that "Magazine  wells  may  be  beveled,  but  may  not  be  oversized,  extended,  or  flared." I assume that's referring to those add-on magwells but before I go filing away metal from the frame of my gun to make the beveled part wider, I want to make sure I'm not doing an illegal mod. Thanks!

Yes, it's legal for Traditional.   You can tell because the rule is stated in the allowed modifications lists for Traditional and Modern pistols.  Both my WB guns are so modified, and about as deep as the picture.  Except I saw no need to funnel the mainspring housing more than just a slight bevel, as I chamfered the bottom front of the frame.   Haven't missed yet slamming a mag home.

good luck, GJ
