    I tried a Dawson Super Heavy Magwell on blue this past weekend and I like it! I bought it for another project that fell through so I thought I'd try it on Blue instead. Fit is excellent, went on with no hassles and it fits my hands better than any magwell I've tried. It's 6.7 ounces which is just shy of the heaviest available, is made of brass and painted black. The feel is easily worth the loss of .3 ounce of weight. :thumbsup:

    Blue's new shoes:

    How can a brass magwell be as heavy as they come? Anyone make a tungsten magwell? Same size, it could be more than twice the mass.

    Somebody has to make it before you can buy or use it. Novak makes a SS at 7.0 ounces, the rest are lighter than 6.0 ounces.

    I've been using the Novak, I like the feel of the Dawson better. Want to buy another Novak? :) Seriously though some hand shapes may feel better with another magwell, but after the THE and Novak the Dawson is the ticket for me. Time will tell if it has any disadvantages.

    don't really have a need for another mag well, but if it's cheap enough i may just want another.
