    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.

    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. ;)
