Aegis Elite Pro 9mm

Is this considered a compact or a full size as far as mags go? Seems like full size to me, so a 9 round mag would be the correct one, right? Description says mag is 9 round, just want to be sure that is actual mag and not 8+1.

These are 9 round mags or 9+1. Note that the CMC (Chip McCormick's) mags will work too and they're 10 round. I use the CMC in my Kimber T-II 9mm and they run great.

A Pro has a full size frame with a 4" barrel, it will accept any full size 7, 8 or 10 round magazine.

The stock magazines supplied by Kimber hold 9 rounds. Another option for 10 rounds would be Wilson Combat's product, they're pricey but great quality. Generally new magazines are pretty stiff. It can be difficult getting the last round in. You can load them up and let them sit a week or so and that will help the springs take a set. Once they're broken in they'll become much easier to load/unload.

Thanks for the replies. I just purchased a used one that has a Wilson combat mag but no original kimber mag. It has a rubber/plastic base and there is a little metal showing between the grip and the base plate. I assume the Wilson is a 10 rounder but not sure, am going to buy a couple more mags for it. It also did not have the takedown tool, so I have to get one of those or some other better replacement.

Well I just loaded the mag and it is definitely a 10 rounder.

...Wilson Combat makes a flat wire 9mm recoil kit for 4" 1911s that eliminates the need for a "tool". A bent paperclip will work in a pinch by the way. The flat wire kit is also supposed to outlast a stock spring by 10x. Kimber suggests an 800 round change interval for the stock spring :-(
My round count on the Wilson spring I have installed is around 2300 and she's going strong :-)
Congratulations on your new shooter. After you get her cleaned and lubed post a range report and don't forget the pics :-)

Took her to the range and ran 50 rounds of 115 gr Winchester white box ball ammo, and 50 rounds of Speer gold dot 124 gr hollow points. Very impressed with the red dot sight. However, with the Winchester I experienced 3 failures to extract, and with the Speer one failure to extract. Each time the failure occurred either on the first or second round of the mag. I was only loading 5 rounds each time in the Wilson combat 10 round mag. So at this point not sure if it is a mag issue or something else. I have ordered 2 mecgar 9 round mags and will shoot again when I have them. This gun is used but not much, very little wear on it. It was cleaned and lubed prior to the range.
