Which Magwell for Shadow 2?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to configure a Shadow 2 for IDPA Carry Optics, which Magwell should I get?


The magwell needs to:

  • Fit the IDPA box
  • Work with my magazines (Mec-Gar 17 round MGCZ7517AFC)
  • Work with my Basepads (Springer Precision SP0309-Blu, 0.99 oz)
  • Be light as possible (total weight needs to stay under 45oz with empty magazine)


Looks like there are a lot of options out there, and only some list the weight and base-pad compatibility.


Anyone have intel on these?

I use, and have used for 2 years the CZ Custom aluminum magwell. 

The mags i use are the CZ 18 round, the ones that come with the SP01. for the base pad, i use the 17 round mec-gar plastic ones that come on the 17 round mags.

this is what i use on my shadow 2, and with the polymer CGW guide rod, it comes in at 44.8 oz.
