IPSC TGO Model Description:

Designed by “The Great One” himself, Rob Leatham, from the same rugged, machined aluminum components as Techwell’s SP, Carry, and XT models. The TGO model introduces a wide and smooth streamlined magwell with large flared sides to give the competitor a superior frame opening that’s impossible to miss and makes for lightening fast mag changes. Leatham used this proven TGO design to win multiple consecutive USPSA Single Stack and Limited-10 Nationals. In fact, every Single Stack Nationals since 2007 has been won using our Techwell System!

Designed for an 8-round magazine with standard or extended base pad and/or 10-round magazines, the Techwell System enhances shooter’s grip and aids in fast, positive magazine changes for an edge in competition or combat. IDPA- and USPSA legal for match use, this extended magwell helps guide the magazine for fumble-free changes when seconds count, and requires no gunsmithing or frame alterations.  All Techwell System products are fully interchangeable, and removing the Techwell entirely shows only a tiny slot on the bottom of the grips.

The TGO is legal for use in both USPSA and IDPA (ESP and CDP Divisions) competition, and is designed to allow the pistol to easily fit into the USPSA/IDPA/IPSC “Box”. Pistols with unusually high sights, or extended base pads on the magazine may need a small amount of material removed from the leading edge of the magazine extended base pad to fit into the box. Due to fluctuations in frame manufacture, some minor fitting of the Techwell may be necessary. You will find You Tube Movie Links demonstrating both Techwell Installation and Techwell Tuning at the bottom of the product main page.

SPECS: Machined aluminum. IPSC TGO Magwell  – .60 oz (17g), 34.85mm wide (just under the IPSC 35mm).


IPSC XT Model Description: 

Made from the same rugged, machined aluminum components as Techwell’s Carry, TGO, and SP models, the XT sports the largest 360 degree opening of all currently available 1911 magwells. Rob Letaham won a USPSA Limited 10 National Championship using his Springfield Single Stack 1911 fitted with our Techwell XT! In fact, EVERY Single Stack Nationals since 2007 has been won using our Techwell System!

The Techwell XT requires an extended base pad on an 8 round magazine, or a 10 round magazine, it enhances shooter’s grip and aids in fast, positive magazine changes for an edge in competition or combat. IDPA- and USPSA legal for match use, this extended magwell helps guide the magazine for fumble-free changes when seconds count, and requires no gunsmithing or frame alterations.  All Techwell System products are fully interchangeable, and removing the Techwell entirely shows only a tiny slot on the bottom of the grips.

The XT Techwell is legal for use in IPSC (CLASSIC), USPSA, and IDPA (ESP and CDP Divisions) competition, and is designed to allow the pistol to easily fit into the IPSC, USPSA/IDPA/IPSC “Box”. Pistols with unusually high sights, or extended base pads on the magazine may need a small amount of material removed from the leading edge of the magazine extended base pad to fit into the box.

More Information:

USPSA Single Stack, IPSC Classic, and IDPA SSP, CDP, or ESP Division CompetitorsPlease Note this Important Information regarding “Fitting Into The Box” and USPSA & IDPA “Gun Weight”:

All of our Techwell systems were designed to fit into the USPSA, IPSC, and IDPA “Boxes. Also, the Techwell XT requires an extended base pad, so unless you buy Tripp Research’s new “System Mags”, you will almost certainly have to relieve the bottom front of your extended base pad a little.
If you have never fit your gun to “The Box” bring a file along just in case, and, for your own sake, please make sure that your gun fits into the box with empty magazine inserted, BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.

According to John Amidon, the former USPSA V.P. and Director/NROI, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be permitted to make sure your gun fits into the official box, or makes weight prior to shooting. 
Not all matches will have a box and/or a scale, so the best idea is to find the match Range Master as soon as possible, and let him direct you. That having been said, I suggest you weigh your gun at home before competing with it, here follow the max weights for USPSA and IDPA Single Stack Divisions (IPSC does not have a weight restriction as of this writing):

For USPSA OR IDPA SSP, ESP & CDP: 43.0 oz / 1,219.0 grams or less with empty magazine inserted.

Techwell Weights:       IPSC Compliant SP Techwell weighs .6 oz.
IPSC Compliant TGO Techwell weighs .6 oz.
IPSC XT weighs .95 oz.
IPSC Carry weighs .4 oz

Techwell Grip Weights:           Machined Aluminum Grip Panels   +/- 1.8 oz (51g)
Machined G10 Grips Panels (any we sell)   +/- 1.9 oz (56g)
Rubber Over-molded Plastic Grips Panels   +/- 1.9 oz (56g)

Here is the section copied from the USPSA Rule Book:
“…handgun with empty magazine inserted must fit wholly within a box with internal dimensions of 8 15/16″ x 6″ x 1 5/8″ (tolerance +1/16″, -0″) (8.938″ x 6″ x 1.625″) (227.01mm x 152.40mm x 41.28mm).”

The IDPA Box for SSP, ESP, or CDP Divisions, is slightly smaller, here is the section copied from their rule book:
“…Fit in the IDPA gun test box measuring 8 3/4″ x 6″ x 1 5/8″ with an empty magazine inserted.”

Any return must be authorized by us. If not it may be refused. Even if we accept the package accidentally it is not considered returned without previous authorization.
 

Shipping Policy

 
It is very important that you verify all information is correct, especially the address. If the address provided is incorrect and FedEx charges an address correction fee or if the package is returned, you will be billed for the additional charges. You agree to this by placing an order with us. FedEx charges address correction fees of $11.00 for ground and $16.00 for air packages. We reserve the right to pass those charges on to you as an added shipping charge if you provide wrong address information. Wrong information can be a incorrect zip code, city, street number, suffix (Dr., St., Rd., etc) or even a misspelled street name. Failure to provide suite, apartment, etc is also cause to be assessed an address correction charge. If a shipment is not delivered to the address you provided in the order, or refused, then upon return it will be treated as a return with shipping charges and restocking fee applied. If UPS is selected, they charge shipping on the return trip as well. These charges will be applied to the refund on the order.
Also sometimes we get inquiries as to shipping small items by first class mail. We are required to ship with tracking and insurance by the credit card companies. You may choose to accept all the risks of loss and damage and not get insurance if you wish to prepay but if you use a credit card we will have to ship it with insurance.
We often get requests to leave packages in specified places with no signature. We do not require a signature. The driver may at his discretion require a signature. This usually depends on past history in that area. If they have had packages missing in the area they will not driver release. We can stipulate driver release but then there is no insurance once they leave it. If you are willing to accept the risk then we can stipulate driver release. That means if something happens after the driver says it was delivered you will have no recourse and will loose it. Let me know if you want to release the delivery company of the responsibility and assume the risk yourself. We will process as ordered unless we hear back from you before pickup. You can state in the Customer notes "I request Driver release and assume all risks for package being stolen from delivery point"
 
The cut off time for FedEx is 2:00 CST our pickup is scheduled for 2:30 CST and we will do everything possible to get your order out that day if its placed before FedEx picks up. The cut off time for USPS is 1:00 CST our pickup is scheduled for 1:30 CST and we will do everything possible to get your order out that day if its placed before FedEx picks up. Please consider these times when choosing the desired service and how it will affect the delivery day you require.
 
Errors and Express Shipping- We strive to be error free but we are human and sometimes they do happen. If it happens please notify us at once. Upon determination we goofed we will send out the replacement product immediately with a return label to return the goof. Now the item returned must be unused and still in the packaging to be able to return it so please check your items when you receive them. Unfortunately when these errors happen it seems to always be when the customer has the order sent with an express method such as 2 day or next day. In this instance we can not be responsible because of a deadline that we have no control over. Such as needing it for a match on the weekend and the product was delivered on Friday. We can not be expected to pay Next Day Air or Saturday Delivery charges to fix. We will fix it , and pay for shipping both ways, but using regular Ground or priority mail shipping. Because of this we do make it part of the procedure to triple check Air packages, even then sometimes a small detail may be overlooked. Please understand the order itself and the shipping method are two separate entities. We cannot be responsible for not do we guarantee the circumstances or consequential issues related to the order and express shipping. If you order an item on Thursday for a next day Friday delivery or 2 day on Wednesday for Friday delivery and it doesn't get there on time and its the shippers fault we will apply for a service refund and refund you for the shipping amount. We will not reimburse or refund for any other consequential cost of not receiving that item when you expected it. If you expect that , please do not order from us using an express method. This also applies if we sent the order and there was an error on our part, we have very few, but they do happen. We will correct the error but we cannot be expected to rent a jet airplane to fly you your correct item in time for your need. If you expect that , then please do not order from us. I suggest if its that important that you allow us to send the item to you in plenty of time.
International Orders
 
We can not and will not ship gun parts out of the USA. If you order a part or product that is not allowed we will remove it from your order and ship the remaining allowable items. We reserve the right to correct shipping methods and costs for what is appropriate to your order and destination. Once an international order reaches the destination country, we can not be responsible for any issues with your customs agency. It is your responsibility to make sure what you ordered is allowed by customs, and it is your responsibility to deal with your customs agency. .
If you place an order and ask us to falsify the customs documentations with a lower value or content description we will ignore that request and process the order legally.
It is imperative that if you order a restricted item, most all gun parts, especially things like barrels and slides, and you choose to ship it inside the USA, then you must only export them using legal exporting services. Doing exports without going through these channels can lead to penalties, prosecution, forfeiture or any combination of ramifications. We do cooperate with Law Enforcement in connection with any illegal activity. Please order with this in mind if you plan to export, please do so legally. If you are going to use the items when participating in competitions in the USA this may not apply, but may if you decide to take it home with you. Please consult an export service if doing so.
