I am looking for a durable magwell, maybe Aluminum  for a GMR 15. Anyone seen a good one?

Get a Taccom magwell. It will never break and works really well. Plus they are cheap.

Until TechwearUSA comes out with their aluminum magwell.......you can either spend $72 for an ugly as hell mag well, or $29.95 for an ugly as hell magwell that is NOT going to break and allow you to hit that mag change every time. 

 

Personally, the GMR's deserve a better looking magwell.....and when one finally hits the market, it is not going to be cheap.......you have 3 choices.....wait, ugly and cheap, or ugly and 2x the price.

Well said.  I bought cheap and ugly.  I'll paint it to help 👍    Next is a magazine release

Any updates on this? No more Taccom. I don’t like the Techwell because I think the opening is too small and the mags catch on it. I found the AWT magwell to be of not so great quality in terms of the fit and dimensions. I have 2 of them and they are both off in terms of fit  on 2 different carbines.

Also I just bought a Titan Rocket 3D printed one, so that one will probably be similar or maybe even the same as the old Taccom one. Any metal ones in the works?

I have a Techwell on my GMR-15 and so far it has worked for me.

I just put an Odin works on my gun and it is great. Easy to find and a ton of leverage, just make sure you get the right one. NFA lower or QC10.

I bought 2 AWT for 2 different JPs and neither of them fit at all, and both literally went into the garbage. So I cried once and bought 4 times because the opening on Techwell is too small, the AWTs were garbage, the Taccoms are a little flimsy, finish isn’t great and they don’t even sell them anymore, and the titanrocket black magwells were really poorly finished with splinters everywhere and I had to file them myself with micro files to get them anywhere near acceptable. Haven’t even tried the titan rockets on for fit yet. So In other words, I’m still 0 for 4 but currently using the Taccom because it’s the least bad.

Silver. - Man I am sorry to hear this. My GMR-15 is only 3 weeks old and I just got the AWT unit in last week. I guess I got lucky and was able to get one that fit.....

 

I am not affiliated with AWT in any way and was not trying to mislead anyone....Thanks for your post as I was not aware of these issues with the AWR part.....Mark

Oh it’s no problem. In fact, I know several people who are happy with theirs, I just got a sour taste after 2 of them didn’t work out. Glad yours is awesome. I just feel that people who are considering stuff should hear the good AND the bad.

ZZW - No Sir. Took less than 2 minutes. I did take a drop of gun oil and put on a small cloth rag and lightly wiped down the area that the two parts were going to mating so that it did not hang up requiring me to have to “tap” it on. It slid on with force from my palm and then I put one drop of blue loctite on the set screw before securing....I will get a few pictures this weekend and post here.....Mark
