my 9mm 1911 is an older govt model, it’s never failed with oem magazines. i’ll check some of these out, cause 10+1 is better than 9+1.



Orbitup,
When I checked those out they said ”for tripp bodies only”. Or am I looking at the wrong kit?
I don't see that.

Mec-Gar, Checkmate, Chip McCormick, Wilson Combat, and Kimber all make decent 1911 mags. Wilson, Chips, and Kimbers are what I've owned more of than any other brand.

Mec-gar are my goto mags. They make many if not most OEM mags and I've never had an issue with any mec-gar mag.

I did have a few Wilson mags that were shit and wouldnt work in any 1911 I tried them in but that's a rare occurrence. Never bought another.

Gunz are icky.
Wilson or Colt factory.

The Tripps I have work but they’re loose in the gun. They wiggle around.
You also can’t teacup hold them. The mag will bind on the bottom of the slide while firing causes jammage. If you keep from touching them they’ll work ok.
Because of that I recommend against Tripps.

Beware of Chinesium mags. There is a crap ton of them out there.
NEVER buy Pro-Mag.

Check Mate brand is spotty. I have some that run perfectly and some that are junk.

Wilsons are GTG.
I prefer Colt factory mags as they fit flush and have always worked well for me but they’re not 10rd.
