Question Basic question of mags

I have owned my first Kimber for a little over a year now. It's a Custom Crimson Carry II with green laser sights. I ABSOLUTELY love it. I've owned both Ruger and Sig handguns for many years now. They're fine, but nowhere near my Kimber. I shoot so incredibly well with this gun, it's almost like magic. I carry it concealed IWB 4:00 every day (in my car while I'm on duty) and it's very comfortable.
I'm considering getting the Utra Crimson Carry II as a backup weapon for use in an ankle holster. Question: Will the mags from my Custom Carry fit in the Ultra Carry? I understand that the longer mags would extend below the butt of the grip. But otherwise, would it work? In addition to carrying my Custom Carry, I also carry 2 extra mags. If the same extra mags would fit in both primary and backup weapon, that would be a great advantage, as I'm sure you could see.
Thanks for your forum and answers. I've learned alot reading already.

I do not conceal carry but I would think the ultra might be a bit large for the ankle the micro nine I think might be more suitable. Like I said I do not carry I am just giving you something else to consider.

The mags will fit, but I'm with SWCA. Too heavy for the ankle carry. How about a 5 shot Charter Arms revolver in 45 ACP. You can reload it from your mags.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois DesertRich, yes the magazines will work in your Ultra size gun. I carry an ultra Tactical with 2 spare full size 8 round magazines.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee! As already posted full size magazines will fit and function in a Ultra size but not the other way around. Ultra magazine will not fit a full size.

Don't care for ankle carry, just try to run sometime while ankle carrying. But if you do, smaller and lighter the better. I would want something much smaller then a Ultra. When I carry a back up gun, it's always a Glock 43 or a Kahr PM9. They are pocket carried in my support side front pants pocket.

For some, thigh holsters are great. Notice these thighs, and if you look real closely and have sharp eyes you can almost see a handgun.
