Okay chirp in here you 1911 lovers... I want to get a couple of 1911 mags just because I think the one I have with the gun looks like it's substandard, and I want more than one anyway just to play with.
Because I believe we shouldn't assume, this is for a Government 1911 I'm currently trying out on a loan, and believe me this particular gun is as plain as it gets besides the super cheap 1911s. It's not a compact or a double stack model or chambered in another caliber or anything like that. I'm babysitting a Springfield GI WW2 Milspec for at least another week and a half while the other party is trying my Sig out for size to see if he wants to get one of those.
I've always heard that the Wilson 47D was the best overall 1911 magazine and they're locally available at a reasonable price. I haven't really heard much about any other brand besides Chip McCormick.
But I want to hear some more general opinions. If nothing else I'd like to pick up mags I could easily resell for 50% of what I paid for them if I wanted to. More than likely I'd toss it in the old parts bucket though... heck I've never even owned a 1911 and I've got a pretty nice set of grips for one. I just hope I have the bushings and screws I need...
