Extended magazine for Ultra

I'm looking for an extended mag (8 round) or my 45 Ultra Raptor. Any suggestions for a quality magazine. Thank you in advance

Chuck and I are using Chip McCormick (10 round). To be clear "I" (don't know about Chuck) am carrying 1 or 2 and sometimes as many as 3 of the CM 10 rounders as my EDC spares.

Yup, Chuck got me into the CM 10 rounders. I carry one as EDC. I carry the original Kimber flat base magazine in the gun and the 10 rounder on my belt.

Mike, for an 8 round magazine I like Kimbers KimPro Tac-Mag, I probably have a couple of dozen of them.

I have a couple of the TacMag 7 rounders that came with my Ultra. I'm new to the 1911 world and I know that many things are interchangeable amongst 1911s. Can I just order the 8 or 10 round advertised for a 1911 or does the Ultra size take a different mag? Thanks for the help

Any of the 7, 8 or 10 round 1911 magazines will work with your gun.

YES, Ultra size pistol magazine size is "Compact" for flush fit with bottom of grip frame.
"Full" size magazines will fit and function in a Ultra size pistol but magazine will stick out past the bottom of the frame about 1/2 inch.

This is my EDC, CDP Ultra with a KimPro Tac mag ready to rock and roll. Later I may try to do a pic with the 10 round CM mag.

2sharp2 showed you what an 8 round magazine looks like in an Ultra.
Here is a pic with the original from Kimber sitting flush with the bottom of the grip and then one of the CM 10 round magazine sticking further out.
Tap on the picture and wait until it loads and then tap it again and it will load properly.
