    Yes, I could email GCI; I'd like to save them having to answer a question they likely receive a hundred times a day (among hundreds others, I'm sure) -- and if it's publicly answered everyone benefits.

    Looking at a Guncrafter build, but I want Wilson's round-butt magwell for it, and I want it all built of-a-piece by Guncrafter (fit, blended, Melonited). Searched here and looked at their FAQ, but came up empty.

    Anyone know conclusively if Guncrafter accepts customer supplied parts for one of their builds?

    I’m sure our handy GI rep will be along shortly and can answer that decisively for you.

    I'm not sure what their policy is now. When I asked them for a Wilson round butt magwell on mine a few years ago after Wilson first developed it. Back then they said they could NOT accommodate the request. I also asked them about the carry beavertail grip safety around the same time, also a no.

    Yeah I'm not sure this could go either way.

    If it was a safety, slide-release or trigger I bet it would be OK, a magwell done to GI standards for fit and finish maybe to much of an unknown. We'll see ;)

    @DPGI is the one to answer this.

    Another option is to ask GI to make a round butt magwell that is similar in design to the WC bullet proof magwell.

    Sorry guys.

    Weekend time is for the family, or I would have replied sooner.

    In certain instances, we will use customer supplied parts. It all depends on what part it is, and what part you want to supply.

    Shoot me a PM or an email and we can discuss the details.

    No apology needed -- family first, especially on weekends. ;)

    Excellent and thank you for the info.
