    Every now and then, I like to peruse the websites of some of the full custom builders. It's kind of the old man's version of looking at Playboy magazines. Gawking at stuff I can't have. They're all amazing but the Stan Chen site always blows me away. With as much time as I spend on the...

    What the title says, a Stan Chen SI Magwell. Unless it's a factory magwell I'm out of the magwell trade. Installed on 2 guns, not abused. $110.00 shipped USPS Priority mail. Photos are handheld and I'm shaky these days so not the best. Check, Money Order, PayPal, anything that spends...

    Bought this cause I wanted to see one in hand. Personally it's a great idea and if I were starting over I'd put these in every 1911 I own. I test fit it in Colt, LB, and DW...the pins line up perfectly in all those I tested. Asking $200.00 shipped, that's a Franklin off retail. Or I would trade...

    Well, I have to shoot some praise over to the guys at Ed Brown. This is the first Brown I've owned and their customer service and super fast custom work has won me over! I was having issues with the Trijicon RMR - right out of the gate. I was told to send it in and they would take care of it...

    Well I did it. Like many of you I have had a long standing obsession with JMB creation. This obsession has taken me through almost every custom shop in the USA. The one shop that has alluded me has been Stan Chen Custom....largely because the cost of admission has always intimidated me. What...

    Stan strikes again! Christina contacted me a while back about a new project Stan was working on. She couldnt tell me what it was but only that it was going to be a "game changer". I told her to shut up and take my money... She ordered me a brand new Springfield Range Officer in 9mm and the...

    Okay so against my better judgment - I'm going to post this. I want to see what's available, so if anyone is interested let me know. Bought this to checkout Stan Chens Pro-Trac treatment, and I can honestly say that it is freaking awesome! As good or better than Wilson Combat's XTAC pattern...

    So, picked this up from Rjinaz a couple weeks ago and I had mixed emotions. I've held 2 Dan Wessons before and they've never been anything spectacular. With this one being a DW, I was hesitant but excited to compare Stan Chens Pro Trac to Wilson's XTAC treatment. After yesterday I can say that...

    Ive got a Colt 1911A1 from 1944, WW2 era, that was sent to Stan Chen for his Protrac grip treatment on the front strap, and his maxbevel mainspring housing installation (also with protrac). I had a full build planned with this frame, but life is leading me in a different direction. $900...

    I saw a fellow member post awhile back about new things coming from Stan Chen. Just received the email so I'm assuming this was the announcement of a new Gen 2 Magwell http://www.chencustom.com/magwells-1
