Ultra Carry II Magazines?

I want to buy a few extra magazines for my new Ultra. My question is what do you Ultra owners prefer?
I have Joe's mags for my Kimber 10 mm and they work excellent. They are the stainless version.
I am thinking Joe's magazines for my Ultra also. They have the normal blued steel or stainless for a few dollars more. They both are constructed the same with the no tilt or jam follower.
I also like Kim Pro-Tac Mags I just do not care for the price so much. Almost twice the price of Joe's
And of course there is Wilson Combat Mags.
Love to hear any thoughts or opinions you guy's and Gals may have.
Thank you!

Well since I may be the Ultra King, I will respond. I have a bunch of Joes' magazines, full size and compact in 9mm and .45acp. I don't know why but I've only bought the stainless ones he sells because there is only a slight price difference. The blued magazines are probably fine but I don't know for sure. They are range magazines however I have never had a problem with any of them and could and would EDC them if needed.
My current EDC extra magazines are KimPro Tac Mag 8 round, yes if I had to reload in a defense situation the full size 8 rounder would stick out the bottom of my Ultra but I don't care if someone is shooting at me I'll take the extra round.

The only mag I have trouble with in my Ultra is a Chip McCormick.

Thank you for the feedback on the magazines! I was leaning towards Joe's I just wanted to know if the Ultra had issues with them.My other 1911's all function great with them. Thanks again I now will place an order.

I had asked which mags would work well with another compact and was given advice by if I'm not mistaken Chuck as well as a few of the gents here on KT that Joe's mags of of ebay were really good. I was unsure about using aftermarket mags but ordered a pair from Joe's. Needless to say they worked so well that i tried them out with my Ultra Raptor with great results. Ordered six more and am a fan

The Kimber mag that came with my Diamond Ultra 9 works fine and so do the Joe's mags.

Agreed, I also use the magazines that came with each pistol and have never had a problem with any of them.
