    Wilson Combat fixed my Kimber problem...

    I couldn't find one locally, so I had to order a Wilson magazine for my Kimber Ultra Carry II. I was having FTF problems with the Kimber mags. Took the Kimber with the new Wilson mag to the range today...problem solved. 200 rounds no issues. I'm a happy camper.

    The Wilson mags will fix a lot of Kimber problems. The OEM Kimber mags are awful. I don't have any experience with the Kimpro-Tac mags, but they're almost as expensive as the Wilson mags, so I choose Wilson...

    Now just order a few more...

    I have had a problem with one of my Original 7rd Kimber gov't size mags, I've never had a problem with the Tac mags nor the stainless steel mag that came with my ultra carry.

    I stick with the Tac Mags but I think wilson makes some good mags.

    Wilson has fixed a Kimber and Springfield of mine. Good products!

    The only mags I will use and trust in my Springer are Wilsons and Wolffs! Never a problem with either.

    Kimber mags are good for putting that first chambered round in at a match where you then put it in your pocket. In Kimber's defense their new Kim Pro mags seem better. Wolff's do not work with my mag wells.

    IMHO the Tac mags are crap. I switched to Tripp, no comparison. I tried several of the Wolff's and they worked OK but not the quality of the Tripp's.

    I tried a couple of the KimPro mags before I tried the Wilson...they weren't working either. Maybe my Kimber is just picky, but the Wilson is the only mag that has worked for me.

    Same for me on my Kimber Pro Tactical...I was just about ready to sell it off but once I switched to the Wilson mags it ran fine. Since then I will only run Wilson mags even in my Colts to have that piece of mind.
