Kimber magazines rubbish or not?

Hey all,
What say all of you in regards to Kimber Mags? I'm told that they are crap and some folks say that they are the finest on earth. I have not had either of my Kim's long enough to really be the judge- but I have had them long enough to realize that I would like more than what the gun comes with.

I have seen some other Brands that are a lot more money.. I don't have any issue spending extra money when I need to.. I just don't want to throw it away. I'll post up some pics later on today.

Thanks.

I like my Chip McCormick 9rd, had mixed results with WC 47NX (10mm). I've heard good things about Tripp and Metalform too.

Gaijin, here's another thread where this has been discussed before. Personally I've never had any problems with the Kimber Kim-Pro Tac mags.

Hey all,
Thanks for all of the replies! I will shoot what I have and hope for the best. I think I have SOME of the chip Mc Cormick mags for my Sig.380. I could be wrong there so don't hold me to it.

I made a Mistake by going into another shop today for a holster(for the gun I bought yesterday) and ended up with another Sig P238(equinox).


I will let you all know how I do this weekend..
Thank you for all of the helpful suggestions and the link!

For myself I have found, visiting LGS is not for my weak disciplines.

I buy too much, if there is such a thing. My wife agrees......

hahaha I don't have one of those.(wifey) weak Discipline? that I have plenty of.

My last GF used to get on me about buying too much stuff.. so I started to buy her some trinkets too... not a peep out of her did I hear after that.

Never a problem with my 1 stock Kimber mag that came with the gun. I have several Kimber 8 round pro tac mags and a Wilson combat....all run very good.. For the money I really like the Kimber pro tac mags.

Kimber pro tacs offer----
3 different butt plates.
Numbered witness holes.
Good follower.
Usually a good price.


It bugs me the way Wilson mags stick out of the base of the gun 1/8 of an inch.. But they are great mags too.
