Stainless Steel Followers

I apologize in advance for another noob question, but I recently bought some WC Service Plus mags for my Pro Carry II. I know they are the cheap WC mags, but I didn't buy them for the price, but because I really like the flush, original GI-style mag. Also I had read great reviews on them saying they are fantastic for the money. However, I got bored the other day and started researching 1911 mags. I stumbled across several threads that said using GI-style mags on a gun with an aluminum frame can really gouge the frame because of the stainless steel followers. I though this was strange considering Kimber ships the gun with this style of mag. Is this a major issue, or is it something that isn't as bad as some say it is?
