    I'm generally not interested in magwells, but that system looks interesting and will read your review for sure.

    That's a very interesting product. Have you got a photo of the bottom of the frame & grips without the mag well installed? I'm curious if using the grips without the mag well is viable or if there are sharp edges or other issues that wouldn't make that practical.

    Outstanding review, Lee! Very well written, concise and informative.

    I like that Mr Novak took the "box" into consideration, since so many competition magwells simply don't fit the IDPA box.

    Well done!

    Thanks for all the kind words y'all, I appreciate them.
    I do like his approach to mag wells.

    Bob Novak was great to work with.

    Dave I am sorry I missed your question.
    I do not but I have not mailed the TechWells back.
    I will take a picture for you tomorrow and post it.

    Picture posted in the review.

    No, they are not 9 round, there is actually another witness hole with 10 beside it on the other side of the magazine body.
    I believe that body is used in different magazine applications.

    I thought it was a nice review. I don't use them for what I use a 1911 for, but they came on my Special Combat Gov, and I live with them there.
