1911 Magazines

Fill me in. I have a Springfield TRP and A loaded model. I would like to buy some extra mags. A guy at work told me to get Wilson Combat because he believed them to be the best. Help me out guys. Any input? Lets put value or pricing aside. Just function here.

I don't really like Wilson Combat mags. The springs don't last long, they have an all plastic follower (that is notorious for not working with some Springfield guns by the way) and have thin walled mag tubes. I personally thing CMC power mags and Tripp cobra mags are the most reliable and durable 1911 magazines money can buy (for a serious use deffensive gun). Wilson's are fine for the range.

Go to 10-8 performance.com and look at the articles section for magazine recommendations. Hilton Yam's recommendations are based on real world hard use guns, not range guns. I have a few Wilson mags, but they are reserved for range use only. Many have no problems with their Wilson mags, and for a long time, they were some of the best on the market.

Wilson, Chip McCormick, Checkmate, Tripp; all good magazines.

Make up your own mind which you want to use after reading this and this.

Are the Springfield Armory factory mags that came with my TRP any good?

Yup. They're Metalforms, I believe.

The newest gen Tripp mags are great, as well as Certac mags. And the Wilson Elite mags are good also. All of these are truely designed 8 rd. .45 acp mags. I use the Wilson 47D's as range mags as do others.

Never had problems with Wilson Combats 47D's and Chip McCormick power mags, so I stick with those.

Mec-gar and Metalform. I have several of each in 45 and 10mm. Use them extensively in matches. Always work flawlessly.
