Description

Now you can reload a 1911 Single Stack faster than you ever thought possible. The DP Ice® Magwell dominates Action Shooting, and if you shoot a single stack, now you can find out why. The "Replaceable Ice® Insert" is fast and forgiving. The super slick insert slides and glides the magazine right in, reducing missed reloads. Time is everything in Action Shooting and a blown reload can cost you a match, so why not have an advantage? The "Ice® Advantage". Dawson Precision "KEY LOCKS" the 1911 ICE® Magwell to our special checkered Mainspring Housing, both CNC machined to precision tolerances. Grip is solid and improved because of ergonomic design. Easy to install with tools and instructions included. Fits USPSA and IDPA boxes. Get them before the competition does. Available in Silver or Tactical Black. The profile is not too bulky and great for LE, carry or any shooter looking for a "SLICK as ICE®" 1911 Single Stack reload. Fits USPSA and IDPA boxes. Legal for USPSA Single Stack Division! Aluminum Mainspring Housing w/Magwell and Insert Weigh 1.5 oz. Wanna try the No-Gap Ice® Magwell? It's as easy as changing the insert! The only difference between the Standard and No-Gap 1911 Ice® magwell is the insert!

The Benefit to No Gap

In the past, 1911 magazines were stopped by a tang in front that rested against a relief in the front of the frame. Hey, it's worked for 100 years, but that required magwells to be open in front, to allow the mag to seat fully.

This made the front of the magwell not very forgiving during a speed reload. So we redesigned the whole system. This new insert fills the front gap with a super slick polymer that is "very" forgiving. Now you can have 360 degrees to funnel your 1911 mag into perfect position for consistent, blazing-fast reloads. All great things come at a price so we had to design a 1911 mag and basepads that exceeded the limits of all conventional design. We took it to a whole 'nother level!

The new mags are DP reliable, of course, and have CNC machined aircraft aluminum base pads, not plastic. We built them to withstand a nuclear blast (although we haven't tested that yet).

    Overall a good product and installed easily.. I purchased this to make my 1911 faster for IDPA. The Mec-gar mags are very hard to seat with this mag well. Perhaps a mag with less material on its baseplate would work better? For now you’ll just have to really slam the mag in to get it to seat. I did trim some of the plastic insert to open it up a bit.

  3. Great for USPSA - SS

    This mag well works great on my 45 with the CMC 8 round mags.
    I also plan to use it with the CMC 10 round mags. I will have to do some cutting / sanding on the tall CMC base pads as they hit the insert and will not seat. Definitely helped my SS gun ... I did buy the base pads that were a bit thicker and filed them just a tad so the
    gun will fit in the USPSA "box" ...

  4. Must have for any action pistol shooting competition

    Got it for my Dan Wesson PM7. It did not need any fitting, and the installation was smooth and easy.

    Basepads for Chip McCormick Power Mags also worked well, although basepads for Wilson Combat needed some fitting.

    This is a must have for any action pistol competition, including USPSA.

    Highly recommended!

    I bought the Ice Magwell for my Gold Cup. The flat mainspring housing needed fitting as the rails were a little too thick. 15 minutes with a Pillar File solved this. This magwell really helps seating my 8 round CMC mags. It's a good thing I have the thick base pads as the magwell is HUGE--:) Works great in dry fire practice. Looking forward to the next match!

  6. Outstanding product and customer service !

    We installed it at the range (helps to have two sets of hands if you don't have a vice). Started using it right away and started shaving 1-2 seconds off of each mag change. Awesome and just as advertised!

    Looked all over for a main spring housing and Mag well flare to upgrade my Sig 1911 RTSS. there is no better match for price, fit and finish on the market. After seeing that a manufacturer like Sig Sauer trusts Dawson it was a no brainer. My 1911 is brand new again. The arched main spring housing/magwell gives it a look and feel of the top of the line competition pieces without the upfront investment. Awesome!
