    Guess it depends on what works. Neither of the 8 rd Chip McCormick mags would work reliably in my SA Champ. The Wilson 47D's work great.

    I've trusted Wilson mags for years and have never been disappointed. The difference in cost really doesn't amount to much when you consider their lifespan.

    I bought two last month and am running them through a couple of 1911's I own. So far so good. I really like the new Wolff mags which are the ACT-MAG with Wolff springs. Also using the Cylinder and Slide tactical 7rounders.

    I just ordered 3 of the new Wilson's for my S&W 1911PD. I'll also post a report as soon as I can get out to do some shooting!

    Well, I've sent off my 1911PD to S&W so I had to use my Springfield Champion to test these magazines.

    The ETM's were flawless, but I have to be honest, so were my 47D's.

    The magazine tube of the ETM is a tiny bit longer than the 47D and of course the new design includes a different floor plate also a bit more pronounced. Round count holes are easier to see remaining rounds through.

    According to Wilson, the spring is a new design and it certainly looks different but feels just like the old one when loading.

    I ran 200 rounds through these magazines and there wasn't a single issue with them.

    Bottom line: Aesthetics aside, the Wilson ETM Magazine isn't significantly different than the 47D in application. The new spring may prove to be superior if I live and shoot long enough to wear any of them out!

    Personally, as long as there are better prices on 47D's and 47DC's (my choice for CCW), I probably won't be buying any more Wilson ETM's!
