arredondo magazine magwell

I can't find a mag well for Arredondo mags. I have way too much money in the them to switch over. So I am looking at getting some made. If I did have some made up do you guys think there is enough demand for them ? Thanks.

You must have (literally) dozens of them if you're in so deep that you can't sell them and make the switch. Not criticizing, just observing.

The folks who are using Arredondo mag extentions for competition are likely to buy just about anything, especially if it's a couple bucks cheaper than the real thing (a Speed Shooter Specialties magwell). Even if you make a sub-standard product, you'll still make thousands off these guys.

If I do it will not be a "sub-standard" as you say. I don't do anything that way. If i made them would they not be the "real thing".I have maybe 10 to 15 of them. I can't see selling them for a loss just to re buy the same thing form someone else. When I have not had a problem with the ones I have now.

I just don't get why nobody makes them for the arroundo mags.

The problem with the Arredondos is that they are designed to sit flush to the factory frame. The Taylor Freelance extensions are beveled up to the base of the mag, which leaves room for a magwell. If you DID build a magwell for the Arredondos, I'm not sure how you'd attach it without there being a step on the inside of the well, basically eliminating the well's advantage.

Just sayin'

I'd sell the Arredondos and swith to the Taylors...

Unfortunately, Taylor seems to be WAY behind building these buggers. Demand is high.

There's a couple here on the site, in the gallery.

I thought you said you had a lot invested in Arredondo mags!

I think he meant a picture of the Taylors, in which case he should be looking at your baby...
"Complete" M&P 40 Pro Limited Build

"I like it alot!"


Also, if I don't find some Taylor Freelance extensions soon, I may purchase some of your Arredondo ones if you're going to switch, kisstactical.
