    How many are you needing? I'll check around tomorrow and see what I have.

    I’ve had good luck with them on M9s. My 1911s are all Wilson Combat or Chip McCormick Power Mags.

    I go Colt and Dan Wesson. However, a friend has two RIAs and they have run flawlessly.

    Do yourself a favor. Buy Tripp Research Cobra Mags.

    Most folks whining about 1911 stoppages are crying about magazine caused failures.

    The world's best 1911 mags come from Bastrop, TX:

    It’s a bad thing for sure. I bought a nice clean used one about 5 years ago, now I have 5 of them.. so I’m averaging one a year...lol

    They make the OEM mags for many manufacturers including Walther and Beretta. They’re top notch.

    But for 1911s I’d go with Wilson Combat all day.

    Good to know. Looking at WC, they are really pricey but I'll probably get a couple. So many styles to choose from, which is which?

    I had one Mec-Gar mag that wouldn’t feed reliably in a Kimber. I gave it to @easy rider because it worked well in his S&W. As far as I know, he’s still using it. I run mostly Kimber mags in all my 1911’s.

    I have Kimber, mec-gar and wilson combat mags. All of them run flawless.
