The old Brown-Baer shot great at last Sunday's match so I'm going to shoot it at this coming weekend's big veteran's charity match. My rusty reloads the other day reminded me that I foolishly let my last Chen SI mag well go with the Colt Competition I sold last year. I checked Chen's site but there isn't any option for rush shipping. Luckily Brownell's can get them to you in two days but you have to pay extra and you don't get the candy or the personalized thank you note from Stan Chen. Still what you do get is a MSH/mag well combo that continues to amaze me with how well they fit.

The old Baer frames were made to standard dimensions so the the SI mag well fits great and it only took a few minutes to remove the old MSH and install the Chen. The fit and feel are terrific for a drop in part and the wide mouth will certainly help my reload speed. My stock of mag well cut grips is low but I think this red, white, and blue pinstriped set from now defunct Raasco will work just fine.:grin:

Gun looks super.....ready for some patriotic fun.

Good to see the Baer frame fit up to the Chen so nicely.

Update - I came in 49th out 99 shooters, 2nd in single stack, not bad for a rusty old fat guy. And I didn't miss or bobble a single reload, thanks Stan Chen! I really enjoy shooting a steel .45ACP 1911 with iron sights and wearing a leather rig when I go to matches, especially when the field was dominated by polymer double stack 9mms with red dots and matching kydex and nylon gear.

Obligatory dirty gun pic, it was still warm when I took this.:grin:

Excellent WC!
I stubbornly (actually it’s my choice) run a single stack 1911 in leather at our matches.

Pooh on plastic!
Great minds! :thumbs:
