When my Ultra arrives, I intend to utilize a 7 rnd mag. I don't like the look of the 8 rnd stick out and it defeats the concealability of the Ultra. May as well buy a Ultra+ with the full grip.

This is just me. I have the magazine that came with the Ultra and two Kim Pro mags and not had a problem with any of them. I have the original compact magazine in the pistol and carry/use the 8rd mags as extra/backup. If I have to reload for any reason, who cares if they stick out the bottom as long as I know they function correctly, then I also have two extra rounds.

To get back to the problem he is having, if the gun runs with the Wilson mag then the problem has to be with the Kimber mag. Have you cleaned the mag ? on .45 they tend to get dirty I would take the mag apart and clean it then try again

The WC ETM hangs about 1/8th of an inch below the magwell base, if that.
Here is a close pic that is about level with the bottom and shows it pretty well.

By the way, mine is a Pro, not an Ultra, so I have a full size grip.
