.45 Magazine Comparison Article

I am new here and tried searching for this but not much luck.

I am looking for a article that does a comparison between Wilson and Chip McCormick magazines with explanations on the different styles and finishes.

I am wanting to get some more for my Custom II

Thanks

I'm sorry but I'm not aware of the forum ever having a comparison like that posted.

If you're looking for good range magazines at a reasonable price check out Joe's1911magmania. Many forum members, myself included swear by them, never had a single problem with the 2 dozen I own. For carry magazines buy what you trust, personally I carry a Kimber KimPro Tac-Mag in my gun and 2 Chip McCormick 10 round power mags.

Yep, I got this from Chuck but Iím not as big and strong as Chuck so I only carry one CM 10 round magazine.

I 110% agree with Chuck and carry the same magazines, KimPro and two CM 10 rounders.

I am not sure the mag carrier I want will hold 10 rounders with out gouging me.

Are 8 rounds mags the same length as the 7 round ones?

While I haven't tried, Joe's1911magmania yet (Emphasis on yet) I've had 100% luck with Wilson Combat mags and Chip McCormick Shoot Stars mags. Clean, dirty, first round or last round, I've had good luck. I think most folks have a bag of a dozen brands of mags but come back to the same one or two.
