EBay seller or his website. joes1911magmania
A lot of us use his magazines (great range magazines) I have close to 40 of his mags. I have stainless and blue, full and compact, 45 and 9mm. The more you buy the cheaper per unit. He sells 5-packs that are reasonable priced. Never had a problem with any of them.

Be sure you buy "Compact Size" for your Ultra. Full size will fit and function but stick out the end of the grip frame.

I've also had success with KimPro Tac mags but they are pricey.

I've got a bucket full of Kimbers, Wilsons, McCormicks, Colts, and who knows what else--in both blue and stainless. In my Ultra CDP II, I haven't found one that works any better/worse than any of the others. They're all flawless. Go with whatever meets your desired blend of beauty and affordability.

I have that exact same pistol and have been using Chip McCormicks since I bought it with no issues.

Iíve always defaulted to Wilson Combat mags for my compact and government sized models. Iím liking the confidence that 2sharp2 has in these joes1911magmania units. May be worth a try for me and you.

I have only had 1 magazine from Joe’s that gave me a problem and I sent him an email and he sent a new magazine after I sent him the old one. I have the black Kimber mags that use to come with a new gun and they still work fine. My Wilson Combat mags have been well tested and they are great. I have yet to find any magazine brand that has given me a big problems. Btw, the faulty Joe’s mag fed fine it just wasn’t holding the slide open on the last shot.

Like Arland I have a boat load of compact magazines from Joes1911magmania in both 9mm and .45 and have never had a problem.

I use Wilson in my Kimber. Easy default choice for me.

I have Kimbers, McCormicks, Wilsons, Dan Wesson (Checkmate) and Joe's Magmania mags. All of them function flawlessly except for the Joe's in 9mm that routinely will not lock the slide back on the last round. Those mags are obviously range only mags....

YMMV
