    1911 magazine question

    I have one magazine for my Kimber: the one that it came with. I will order some WC mags tomorrow. My question is this: what is the difference between the 47 and the 47D? Is it just that one holds seven and the other holds eight? Or are there more differences? I'd like some 47Cs, but cannot find any.

    Yes, the 47 holds 7, the 47D holds 8, and that is the only major difference I know of between them.

    Wilson has 47C's in stock on their website: 1911 Magazine | 7 Round .45 ACP | Full-Size-Wilson Combat

    I got all my Wilsons from Top Gun Supply. They usually have very good prices on The Wilsons.

    You might also want to check out the Chip McCormack Power Mags. They've been 100% reliable and are cheaper than the Wilsons.

    I'm sold on Tripp Cobra mags for my Kimber.

    I don't even own a Kimber mag for my Ultra--only use original Colt, both stainless and blue. And they have never had a hick-up. I have owned 5" Kimber and used their mags along with McCormick and WC. Use good mags, keep clean, and test each of them at the range with your carry ammo if it is a carry gun.

    When I bought my Springfield Micro, the dealer threw in another magazine and it was a Wilson Combat.
    For whatever reason, that mag never fed right in the Springfield. (I'll never question the quality of W/C products.)
    He exchanged that mag for a Kimber, and the feeding problems went away.
