Hey guys, I want to buy a few extra mags for my new TRP but am worried about which ones will work. I thought all 1911 mags were interchangible and so did my buddy. We were at the range Sunday and his Kimber Pro mags did not do well in the TRP nor did my mags do well in his Kimber.

A local shop has Chip McCormick 10 round Power Mags for $21.00 each, I think he has two left.

These should fit in my firearm right? :embarassed:

I'm learning guys! Go easy! :faint:

I prefer McCormick or Tripp mags. I generally do not but the
10 round mags.

Why didn't they work? Did it have something to do with the base pads or something?

I always buy Tripp cobra mags.

My TRP with his Kimber mag failed to lock the slide back after the last round. Twice!

:wavey: We just switched guns from one station to another but kept are mags and our own ammo.

The 10 round power mags wont be a problem in the TRP though = Right?

Wilson #500 8 Round Elite Tactical Mags.

They are the only mags I use in all my 1911's I have 30 of them!

5000 Rounds in my TRP without 1 Problem.

I just bought some Tripp .38 Super and they're sweet!!!

My alternate choice is either Mec-Gar or McCormick.

I rate Wilson to be somewhere just above the el cheapo factory mags.

I'm with you, I don't really like Wilson mags.

Yeah 10 rounders should work. A few of my friends have some. I'd rather have the look of a 8 rounder vs an ugly 10 rounder. Hahaha hell, I think pro-mag makes a 25 round drum.

My McCormick Power 10's have been flawless in my Springfield.

Any 8 rounders run in my TRP, but I tend to stick with McCormick.

Some 10 round mags work in my TRP, some don't. I have a Mec gar that binds up on the mag well and stops my gun. I mean total lockup, stop the match, nobody go downrange until we figure this out stoppage. I have used McCormick 10 rounders with the big plastic base successfully, but they needed a little dremel help to work right (same issue, contacting the magwell).

The springfield mags are Metalform (I believe) and the Wilson's I've used are 47D and ETM. I've had problems with none of them.

Was going to take a pic for you, but I'm lazy.

See the bump / stop on the back of the 10 round mag?

That's what binds up in the magwell. I have filed it down and it can work, but if I have some sort of problem and go to my normal tap, rack, bang procedure, it's stuck again. In my Ed Brown with no magwell, it runs just fine.

I would avoid any 10 rounders with anything like this on them.

We have found Wilson 47D mags to be flawless in all our 1911A1 pistols. There are other good choices but we like the Wilsons.

We trudge on.

Wilson ETM, Chip 10rd, and Tripp 7rd have worked great in my RIA. Not sure how they would work in your TRP. I would like to pick up some Chip 8rd mags to see if they are as reliable as my 10rder.

I know you are! :wavey: it's all good.

I bought two ten round McCormick mags because they were close outs for some reason. I bought a box of Hornady critical defense also. I was looking for HST but couldn't find any.


Next is my light -
I am thinking Streamlight TRL-1! I can get one for 105.00

Then my nightstand gun will be complete, as well as a G27 in the safe next to it!

Wilson are top notch but I hear great things about Tripps as well. I like Ed Brown mags as well.

Just stay clear of ProMags, they pretty much (and by that I mean absolutely) suck badly.

I have used Wilson 47d's, ETM's, and Chip McCormick 8 round Power Mags. I had issues with both of the Wilson's plastic followers wearing prematurely and causing my TRP to fail to lock back. That is when I switched to the McCormick mags which are still running strong several thousand rounds later.

The McCormicks are usually about $10 cheaper per mag than the Wilson's, which is also a plus.

Also, avoid 10 round magazines.

I recommend reading this article http://www.10-8performance.com/pages/1911-Magazines.html

Excellent choice on the TRP Operator, I love mine.
