    I recently ordered a Guncrafter American in 45ACP. I asked the rep about a rounded magwell and was told they could file the lanyard hole magwell down to create a rounded butt. I have searched the internet but could not find a picture or reference to this being done. Have any of you had this done?

    This is one of the options they have, not sure if this is what you are talking about.
    This is not my gun but it is a GI round butt or bobbed heal.....

    The picture that wheels posted is what it will look like. More of a bobbed heal then a round butt magwell.

    Gotcha. Looking at the American online, you're right. They would have to remove a fair amount of material to remove the lanyard loop. http://guncrafterindustries.com/the-american-pistol/

    I'd go for it if it's going to be a carry gun.

    Really excited about the build. Guncrafter was nice enough to send a build pic of the rounded magwell. These guys are amazing! Thanks for the help fellas[​IMG]
