Favorite 9mm mag full size?

Been reading a lot of threads on 9mm magazines, want to order a couple while I wait for my Target II to show up at the LGS.

I understand Kimber 9mm's are designed for use with mags with fillers in the back. McCormick, Dawson, Metalform, Wilson all get good reviews, but I can't find many Kimber specific reviews on these mags.

My Target II will be a range gun, just for fun, the only competition is with myself (I usually win), so I'm not going to fuss too much over a fail here or there.

Midway has a few different mags on sale, and with free shipping, I want to buy now.

What do you like in your Kimber or other 9mm 1911?

Merry Christmas!

For my Aegis Elite 5" range gun, I'm really liking the WC 9mm 10-round ETM mags. Load up five of them and you've got an entire box of ammo ready for the fun stuff.

95% of my 9mm magazines came from joes1911magmania.net you can't beat the quality or the price.

I agree with Chuck. For the price and quality Joes magazines can't be beat.

Just bought some Wilson Combat 10 round mags for my Stainless Target II. They function flawlessly, unlike the first lot of (unbranded) 9mm/.38 Super mags I got with the gun.

From now on it will be Wilson Combat all the way.

Just another brand to consider . I've found a really good deal on CMC, (Chip McCormick brand now owned by Wilson), 10 round, 9mm mags. I run them in my Kimber T-2 and a Colt Competition Model and have run several hundred rounds without any mag issues. I like them a lot.

I don't think you can go wrong with Wilson's as well. I have some .45 mags that I bought for IPSC matches back in the early 80s and they must have thousands of loadings on them and still run flawlessly.

Joe's Magazines does not appear to make a mag for the Kimber Micro 9.
