do any1 of u guys know where i can find a gunsmith that makes a good magwell for para p16-40??
First Option - 4154430
No experience with Paras but I heard that the Smith & Alexander magwell is the best one for it. I saw one at Twin Pines MCS.
ditto on the S & A , the best mag well in my opinion. That is what I had in my para before.
If you can get masnny sunico to make one for you, dun na!
If not, metrillo or boy tolentino makes great lookin magwells, cheaper and better lookin than imported magwells
I like the S&A too, but it requires a gunsmith (or machinist) to shorten the frame a bit to install it.
Another good choice is the Dawson magwell. The standard version (not the "ice") goes right on there and I don't think it even requires any blending on most guns.
If you'll get the S&A magwell you still need it to be "BLENDED" to your frame. That means gunsmith fit, if I were you Kabayan I'll just go to a local smith to have them do the whole setup. You will save more in the long run. I prefer METRILLO bros. to do the job.
Here is what an S&A magwell looks like. It's a magwell and mainspring housing in one.
Pareho kami ni Batangueno ng set-up. Here's my Para P16-40 with an S&A MSH and Magwell combo
If you fancy this, eto gawa ni Col. Bayang (840-1362).
Also, try to avoid a magwell that's welded (and becomes integral) to the frame. That way when your magwell shows some wear, you can have it refinished separately from the frame.
