I concur. Anything bought from a friend should be as much for safe-keeping as for resale value.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I know all too well about health problems and medical expenses.

I'll second the idea about holding on to it for a while. he's sure to miss it and maybe you can help him out once again by taking care of it until he can afford to buy it back.

Think of a magwell as a large funnel which makes fast mag swaps much easier. They are very handy for competition shoots where fast reload times are very important...

Was the front strap cut and the checkered strap installed? It looks different, like there's a weld or something.

It's one of those mount under the grips thingy's. I've used the Pearce rubber ones before, this is the first metal one I've had - feels pretty good actually...

Thanks. I thought it looked somehow different.

I have small hands, so I'm generally looking to make a grip smaller, not larger.
