Since There seems to be a love of 1911's here what is your fav mag for a 1911 ...


Ive had luck with CMC Shooting Star Mags but wonder about the Wilson 47d or something else with a non steel follower as i have ready it can gouge the frame on Alloy Framed psitols since my soon to be picked up 1911sc is alloy frame this got me wondering ...



of course post your luck with fullsize normal frames to need some extra mags :alien384:

I use the Wilson mags and the only problem I have noticed with them is they have an issue with locking the slide open after the last round is fired.

Weird, acparmed, I use only Wilson mags and have not experienced the slide not locking back in my Kimbers. I did hear that occasionally, the plastic pad on a Wilson 47d will, in certain circumstances (getting caught on something?), send your base and spring launching from the body. I have never experienced anything like this with Wilson mags.

I use only Wilson's in my Kimber too. However, I've had a few instances when the plastic bumper has disengaged about half-way after the magazine hits the ground upon ejection during a speed re-load. Probably not such a good idea to use my good mags during that type of training... :rolleyes:

Wilson

Another vote for Wilsons in my Kimber! I have 15 different 7-round 47,OX mags that I rotate through my Ultra at somewhat regular intervals, and have had 100% reliability from them!

I have yet to have one malfunction with mine either. I have six right now and need more than that. :smile:

I also have 10 CMC Powermags and they are very nice and function flawlessly in the Les Baer Thunder Ranch Specials. I got a deal on them for $20 each.

Like Bumper, I use Wilson Mags for my Kimber and have never had a problem. I was asking Bumper the other night about another brand mag that is suppose to be similar design to the Wilson, but half the cost....anyone know ?

I use both Wilson Combat (8rd, come std with S&W 1911) and Cobramag HV A8-MG mags that I got on a group buy from Virgil Tripp (Tripp Research . . . real good folks to deal with).

The Cobramags seem a lot better constructed, but I don't have enough rounds thru them to fully evaluate them yet.
