I decided I want a mag well to ease loading.

I figure I want one that connects via the ms housing pin.

What I cant figure out is, what is the screw in the mag well for?



I figure the ms housing pin should be enough to keep it in place, right?

Eh? What 2 piece? There is only the well and the new longer pin.

I like the housing I have. and it does not have a hole in it.

The screw attached the magwell to the Main Spring Housing, it is a two piece construction.
I think you're right, just like the Ed Brown Maxiwell. No other purpose for that screw other than to screw into the bottom of the MSH. Otherwise, how else would it attach? No grip screw flanges, not integral with the MSH, guess you could super glue it on :rolleyes:

I've seen some magwells that have very thin arms that project upward and the pin holds the assembly in place.

That being said without a side view of this part we're all guessing.

Here is side view, as I said, an extended ms housing pin holds it securely in place



Just cant figure out the screw.

It's only connected at the rear with the pin and the set crew will put pressure on the rear to keep the front from swiveling downward incase of loose fit. :)
