The Original "S&A Mag Guide"® is the only one piece patented mag guide on the market place (Patent #4,570,370).

It is one of the most practical and usually the first custom part one installs on their 1911 pistol. It can be installed with ease in minutes with no frame modifications. The "S&A Mag Guide"® increases the magazine opening over 100%. Once installed on the frame it fits solid. No welding required. Adds 1/4" to grip for extra leverage and recoil control. 20 LPI checkering for the maximum grip retention.

Government model will fit all full size 1911 frames including Commander, Delta Elite, Double Eagle, Auto Ordanance, Kimber & Springfield.

  1. Perfect

    Fits my Sig 1911 Target perfectly. It matches the
    brushed stainless seamlessly. The fit and finish is factory grade. But also, with the slim fit, you can barely tell its even on there. Not even a 10 min install. Super, Super happy

  2. S A magwell

    I have installed over 15 of these on my 1911s (except my Wilson Combat Classic Supergrade) ranging from 9mm to 10mm Kimbers, Colts, Springfield. The fit is perfect and grip is enhanced. The S A will increase the mag chute at least 50%, but for even faster reload, flare and blend it into the frame. Highly recommended.

  3. Awesome

    Picked this up for my sig 1911 match elite 9 to get the extra quarter inch length on the grip. Quality of this is tremendous and it fit like a factory part with no modifications needed. I was impressed. Cannot recommend enough.

  4. Great Ad-On

    I purchased this Mag Well as my first mod to my new Springfield 1911-9mm Loaded and I can't say enough good things.
    The fitment is perfect, it adds a good feel to gripping the Handle... more solid, and it looks good.
    I didn't expect so many people asking me about the S&A Maxwell, seems more people want to know about them than have them.

  5. Same great magwell they've produced for years

    Another great magwell from S&A. These fit my Kimbers with zero fitting and work great once installed.
