Hi guys, I’m new to the forum, I’ve heard that I need to buy some different mags for my Aegis Elite Pro 9mm. Is Wilson Combat the way to go for my Kimber. They have the 500-9A or 500-9B but they’re 10 rounds so they’ll stick out am I right. I’m looking for a good flush mount 9 round 9mm mag. Any help would be appreciated, thank you

Wilson (and others) makes 9mm 9-shot mags that sit flush with the base of the pistol without any 'hang-out'. Go on their site, or Midway and check them out. Only the ten rounders (or more) extend out from the base of the grip.

My Aegis Elite Custom (top) 5" is a 9mm with one of those mags installed:

There's nothing wrong with Kimbers KimPro Tac-Mags I have about 25 of them and never had an issue with one.

Don't believe everything on the internet. Who told you Kimber mags are bad?

I have never had any problem with factory Kimber or KimPro mags.

Good range magazines can be had by joes1911magmania.

Your Pro model Aegis uses "Full Size" magazines.

I have used Kimber’s 9 round 9mm mag’s in my Pro Carry II. They work fine, but I’ve had an issue with at first; when you rack a full mag and chamber the first round and then eject the mag. The next round in the mag falls out through the mad well. I’ve use Wilson 10 round and they are ok, it’s just that you can’t strip about the first 4 or 5 rounds by hand, advice from others on another form suggested leaving them fully loaded for a month or two to “break in the spring”, didn’t work! I have also used Remington’s 9 round and they work great. But I’ve heard that Remington has filed chapter bankruptcy and is for sale, so who knows
how long you will be able to get them there. It seems that all 9mm mag’s are finicky. Hope this helps.

I've got 20+ Kim-Pro Tac mags and have never experienced a problem with any of them. Good luck with what ever you decide.

Hello Gang,

Just purchased 2 Ed Brown 9mm Mags for my Kimber Aegis Elite Pro 9mm, and they are exactly the same mags as the Kimber mag that shipped with my pistol.
So...Kimber Mags work great!

Leaving a spring compressed doesn't affect it.
That's another myth that gets floated around gun forums regarding mags.

bad ninja, is correct on the spring, actually working them is the only way for them to loosen up.
