Kimber and Wilson Mags

I have a Kimber Super CArry Ultra Plus and I am trying to use Wilson Combat ETM mags. I ordered direct from Wilson and the first ones they sent me were too long. The baseplate wouldn't allow the mags to fully insert all the way. The replacement ones also wouldn't work either.

I think I will try to modify the vertical part of the baseplate by cutting it down. Any thoughts?

Kimber and Wilson Mags

The Super carry grip is a full size grip and 8 round mags. 7 round mags wonít lock in. Are you sure you have the right mags? If the ones you have are full size mags Iím not sure why their not locking up snug my Wilsonís do.

It looks like the Vertical part of the baseplate is too tall.
Are you using the ETM in your Super Carry Plus?

I don't own any WC mags, I run the 8 round Kimber KimPro Tac Mags in my Supper Carry. I have about 25 of them and never had a problem with any of them.

It's good to see you back on the forum Dan, I hope you and your family are all well.

Welcome back, I recently purchased a Sig Nightmare Carry which has a round heal like your SC Ultra +. The Sig mags are nice mags but stick out really far in my opinion. I purchased these WC Mags from eBay which fit perfect. You can always add a bumper pad if thatís what you like.

I donít have a picture with me with the WC mag. I can post one when I get home later today.

Thank you all for your replies. I have been playing around on the motorhome forums.
I have also had 4 heart attacks since 2012. The 4th was two weeks ago. Im doing ok but have had other interest and simply just haven't been into my firearms. Ill check in from time to time. Thanks again.

First take care of yourself and family, then take care of your firearms.
