Techwell IPSC XT vs Dawson Ice 1911 Magwells (for competition)

Recommended Posts

I’ve used both the Standard and ISPC-compliant Dawson magwells as well as the SVI version. My favorite is the SVI both for looks and function. However, they’re a PITA to take off and on. Both Dawson versions work relatively well and the IPSC version can work well with most standard basepads. They’re also much easier to install and remove. Never tried the Techwell versions.

@cheers623Can you tell me what mags you use for the SVI 1911 magwell? I have CMC Power mags with Dawson base pads on them. The basepads are meant to be used with a "gap" or standard magwell and I was wondering if these would work or be compatible with the SVI magwell...

On my list of to dos is to build a personal single stack gun. I always include the SV magwell in my comparisons. I think it looks the best.

Im looking at this magwell now as well...Can you tell me which mags you are using with yours? I currently have CMC 8rd Power mags with the Dawson aluminum base pads that are meant to be used with gap or standard 1911 magwell and cant really get a clear answer if they are compatible or not...

Yes, every base pad I’ve got works with the SVI version. Hope that helps!
