Here are a coupla links. I like posting pics but this way only whoever really wants to see them has to suffer the download time.

Coulnd't find the pics I wanted. This is the first one I did, the insert is steel, Parkerized and then done with the Brownell's baking laquer. I don't put much stock in the spray-on bake-on finishes-- I tell people as a protective coating, no, but as a protective coating for your protective finish, yes, especially if it's Parkerizing as it really drinks the paint. I figured too, for this application, it would be the best match for the space-age, non-metallic composition-- oops, I mean plastic.

I'da brushed the dust outta the serrations if I'da known the pics would come out that sharp! As you can see, it blocks the hole and enlarges the magwell toward the rear.

Hope ya like it!

Thanks for the pictures.

Can you do this work on the large frame Glocks as well as the 9/40 frames?

BTW, I'd also be interested in any info you have on the durability and rust resistance of the parkerized/sprayed-on finish versus either parkerizing or the spray-n'-bake approach alone.

Nice innovative way to solve this problem. Nice looking and cleanly executed! Kinda like "upgrading" a Poly Pistol to a very similar 1911 MSH? Wonder about the feasibility of an integral mag well with your back-strap mod {for CCW not Competition}?
