    I too had some minor issues with 47Ds, I have replaced all the followers and springs, they now only hold seven rounds. I'll be damned if the old guy that designed the pistol didn't know a thing or two about them.

    My 1913, M1911 wasn't made quite 100 years ago, but it still works perfectly.

    JMB's designs are still influential on every single semi automatic handgun today....

    This I agree with but I believe his stroke of genious was the vastly more simple lockup of the high power as it has been copied with so much success by EVERYONE.

    He designed two BHP prototypes.... one was locked breech striker fired and the other was the blowback design you see now. he was a genius and his designs have been copied and improved on with modern technology by all. To say that his design is outdated because it is 100 years old is to be uneducated on firearm history and design.

    Didn't know there where 2 BHP prototypes...learned somethin...anyway I wouldn't say 1911's are outdated. I would say that if your life depends on it, there are a bunch of cheaper more reliable designs out there. They just so happen to be based on JMB's later design.

    Yep reduced to 7 rounds, which is why I bought 2 of the 8 round Tripp mags as these are suppose to be a true 8 rounder, which I am told the Wilson ETM mags are as well.

    This post got me thinking, so I got all of my 1911 mags and counted them, I have 52 mags. Now 22 are for my Colt 10mm and the rest are for my 45's.The name brands are Mcormick, Wilsom, Colt and Les Bear and yes he makes his own. The follower looks like a Wilsom.But all my mags work.I do take care of them. When I did lots action shooting I would go home and clean my weapon and clean my mags.They been drop in dirt , step on, you name.If the mag is getting tired put new mag springs in it. I'am not married to it, if I have too I replace it and throw the old one out.Some times the feed lips spread on them.Hell I got a 7 round WWII mag with the old spring in it and it works.Food for thought.

    just picked up 4 new colt 1911 mags from cheaperthandirt.com for about 14 bucks each....they are original colt and work great in my CC.....

    I do have a stainless steel wilson (I believe) which won't eject when it gets warm......so..went back to colt's mags....
