Just picked up my Kimber 1911 .45 Pro Carry II. I am interested in purchasing some Wilson Combat magazines in 7 round capacity. What models of ther magazine are useable in this gun? Please be specific as there is a 47 for a full size or a 47OX for the Commander size, and on and on.

On Wilson Combat's web site, the designations for the 7 round magazine are:

47OX Standard base, Compact

47OXC Lo-Profile Steel Base, Compact

47OXCB Lo-Profile Steel Base, Black in color.

My preference for my 3" Ultra is the 47OXC. IMHO, the Wilson mag is head & shoulders above any mag I've tried.

I have a Solo CDP LG & as far as I know, the only mags out there are Kimber OEM in 6 round & 8 round. I have (2) 6 rounds & (1) 8 round. They all function perfectly( after I fully loaded them & parked them for a long while to relax the springs)
I haven't encountered any issues that would give me reason to look elsewhere for Solo mags. Are you experiencing any problems?

The only problem I am having with Solo magazines is finding 2 of them.

I refuse to pay the eBay price of $80 to $100 each.

Everyone else seems out of stock.

Kimber Ultra Carry II w/laser grip.

Picked up my Gander Mountain edition on Friday, After a decent break in period, I'll use it as my carry weapon replacing my M&P Shield. Also looking to buy a few Wilson mags but it's difficult to buy anything these days.

Not really, I picked up my Solo CDP on Friday and was at the range on Sunday, while loading it for the first time it seemed as if the walls were spreading. Not sure if it was just an illusion. I did set it to the side loaded to see if the spring will loosen up a bit.

Since I only have "one" I thought that if I was going to buy more then I would see what is out there. Thanks for the quick response.

I bought a solo about a month ago. Luckily the dealer had a couple of extra solo mags in stock. I regret I only bought 1. $24.95 I think.

He did not.

I received a "back in stock" e-mail from gunclips.com saying thy had 10.
I immediately went there and placed an order.
A couple of hours later, they sent me an e-mail saying their inventory software screwed up and they did not have any.
Then shortl later they sent another e-mail saying they found 2 and are sending them.

So, I think I have 2 coming.

Check in everyday to the Kimber website. Every few months, for two or three days, they will have them available. That's how I got my two recently. i did the same for their recoil springs which I got as a spare for "when the time comes."

For loading, I bought one of the Maglulu auto loaders which helps get those last few rounds in very easily.

Rick,
I posted this on another thread. I am having issues with the 8 round mags.
If you have any advice please post or contact.
See below post:

I mentioned earlier on another thread about issues with loading rounds 7 and 8 in the extended mag. They don't seat well. They angle down and
results in fail to feed. Yesterday at the range for the first time I had FTF issues with the first 2 rounds (7-8 while loading). They just don't seat correctly and pop down. I have 6 of these mags and all did basically the same thing. The six round mags were flawless as usual. Does anyone else have such problems with the 8 round mags? Has anyone found any resolutions? This seems to be a common issue. Would appreciate your comments.
