Yeah mine is government issued and i would just like a larger mag because even though i only need 1 bullet but a larger magazine would be nice.

Would you think that there would be any universal .45 auto mags that would fit in my pistol?!

Lots of manufacturers make mags for full size 1911s. There are 8 rounders that fit close to flush. There are also extended mags that hold 10 rounds with a stop that keeps you from pushing them in too far and damaging the feed lips.

Wilson, Chip McCormick, Tripp research. Are just a few.

Yes. Most single stack .45 mags are interchangable, but to avoid problems get good quality. I use Chip McCormik mags mostly.
