I'm thinking of getting the dawson nogap magwell and the associated mags, but I'm concerned that it will now be possible to overfeed the magazine into the frame without the stop on the front of the mag that engages the frame. I used to have a lot of trouble with my STI Eagle and overfeed the mags into it, shoving them up so high that it hit the ejector and was wedged. Is that same problem now possible if I go with the nogap magwell and mags? If so, I'll probably stick with the standard magwell they have.

I've been shooting an STI Trojan in 9mm for a couple of years now and the only problem I ever had with over insertion was with a "no gap basepad" magazine in the STI magwell. The rest of my magazines have the "Competition Standard" basepad and I now use that "no gap" magazine for my Barney. It's fine with the slide closed. But if you speed load one of those with your slide locked back, you just blew that stage.

There's the problem. No-gap pads are for no-gap magwells. The pad stops on the no-gap magwell, but not on any other model/brand.
