Magazine Question

I have searched the forum and it seems if someone were to purchase additional magazines, they should stick with either Kimber, KimPro or Wilson Combat.

Am I correct?

Yes, the ones you said and I also use Chip McCormick for EDC.

But for range shooting a lot of us use joes1911magmania magazines, great guy, good magazines, good bulk prices. He has a website and is also on eBay.

Oh wait, your thinking about buying a 380 or 9mm Micro, he didn't use to have magazines for those, only 1911's full and compact, 45 and 9mm.

I got a Kimber Custom TLE II.

Still haven't made a decision on the Micro. Going to a big city next week hoping to be able to put my hands on them both and spend some Tax Refund money.

I think if you look far enough you’ll find folks are using a variety of mags. I’ve used CMC shooting stars for 30 years in competition (45 cal) and have never had a failure or issue of any kind. They’ve been dropped on concrete, in mud, walked on and generally been abused and never failed. I’ve never even had to replace springs. I use both 9 and 10rd. I couldn’t even guess how many thousand rounds have been through them.

In 9mm and 38 super I use a mix of Mec-Gar and Metalform. I’ve been using them for a couple of years now and never had an issue. Both seem to be made as well as the CMC.

I don’t remember whether it’s Mec-Gar or Metalform but it’s my understanding one of them makes OEM mags for Kimber and many of the other 1911 manufacturers.

When I buy I go to Gun Mag Warehouse and look for the best price between the three manufacturers.

I would add Chip McCormick as well...
just recently purchased 2 Micro's...
...a Kimber Micro CDP .380 and a Kimber Micro 9mm; the .380 came with 3 magazines... the 9mm came with 1 magazine--best price that I found was from Kimber for a pack of 3...
