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.

I just stick with Wilson 47s and never have a problem.

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....
