Self Correcting Magwell PT EVO

Recommended Posts

Looking to upgrade the Magwell in a PT EVO Grip.  What are the recommendations?

 

LIMCAT / Akai / Dawson / PT / EMG

 

Looking for a self correcting and minimum fitting Magwell.

I tried the limcat magwell on my PT EVO Grips. It took some fitting. It does not fit the EVO PT grips ideally. I ended up with the PT magwell. I installed it on two identical guns. One took no fitting at all, the other one was a little tight. Both work fine. I like the feel of the PT better as it gives you more room for your grip and I do not have large hands. The PT grip is slightly lighter compared to the Limcat.

I have a PT EVO (AI)  with Dawson magwell.  Not fitting required.

I had to fit my PT magwell to get it on the PT grip, which seems odd...

If it is an EVO grip, there should be no fitting needed.

I have a PT evo grip, went with the PT magwell, dropped right on, no issues. 

 

Folks thanks for the feedback.  Leaning towards a PT Magwell (no fitting) or a LIMCAT Stainless Steel (fitting req'd).

I went new PT Magwell on PT Evo grip, no fitting. Works like a Dyson vacuum.

Just know the Limcat will require substantial fitting.

What is the weight of the PT EVO magwell?  I have both the EVO and the Akai, and like them both, but I think there is a difference in weight even in aluminum models

I put the Limcat on PT EVO grip. Don’t let the “fitting” scare you. I’m an absolute idiot and I was able to do the fitting in minutes with a cheap old file I found in my garage. It’s not hard at all.

I sent my PT evo sent to Hayes custom guns for the grip modification. I'm able to kept my Dawson Ice magwell. The mags reload very easy now. I don't need any longer mags that the self correcting magwells would have required for me.

 

It was the cheaper option for me being in a ban state.

So what do they do? Relieve the inside?

The magwell funnels down to the shape of a mag to guide the mag into the proper position. Some were jamming mags in traditional magwells.

It saves you from that one bad mag reload...

 

I have the Cheely Magwell on my other gun and the self-correcting works great.
