I’ve never had a good experience with installing magwells onto my two pistols. Either it’s out of alignment, or the magwell opening is just too small. recall I had a problem with my XDm magazine release because it’s sitting too tightly pressed against the opening of the magwell.
When I installed the Wilson Combat Magwell on my Kimber just recently, I realized that it’ll only allow the stock basepad-less magazines to fit properly. If you use one of those magazines like the really good Chip McCormick ones with the plastic basepad, it won’t seat the magazine in properly :

I really need to work on my filing skills.. BUT it works! checkout the fit now :
