Lesson learned

I swear by Kimber mags for my 9mm Ultra's, never had one problem but I was buying some stuff from Midway and saw a review and bought 6 of these mags.

Well, they suck, on all 6 the slide doesn't lock back after the last round, they do not drop when engaging the mag release and feel extremely snug in the mag well. Oh, well, lesson learned. I have a dozen Kimber mags but thought what the heck, can't have to many mags.

I'm a big fan of Joe's 1911 magazines, I have over a dozen of them in .45 and another dozen in 9mm. I've never had a problem with one of them.

That's so sad.
Hope you demanded a full refund.

Probably, I've just been to lazy to see how they work in the Dan Wesson ECO and Defender before giving midway a call.

IDK, why I always forget Joe's, I'll bookmark that link and order some, thanks
