I've got a Kimber and had some trouble with worn followers on the 47d's holding the slide open after last shot.
I went with the Tripps (thanks Cane) and have got around 8000 rounds through 5 8rd tripp magazines in the last year with zero malfunctions and I've beat the living snot out of them

Hello. I, too, have had nothing but positive results with Mr. Tripp's excellent magazines and upgrade kits for other magazines.

Best and good shooting.

You do know what the "T" in STI stands for don't you?

Tripp. Yep, Virgil Tripp.

I guarantee you won't be let down. I have a few for my S&W 1911 (38 Super) and dollar for dollar they are the best mags out there, I think anyway.

Here are some high-lites about Gen II Cobra mags;

Find the weld on the Tripp.

Notice the fluid stampings of the Tripp mag on the left and right. The .45 case head sits square against the back wall of the Tripp mag, the Wilson is rounded and forces the round forward when it presents for stripping. AND, the Tripp mag feed lips are CNC finished.

This photo shows the slide stop interface. The Tripp mag on the bottom uses a hybrid follower with a metal interface where the Wilson on top uses a poly follower interface. The Wilson shows witness-marks where the slide stop engages the mag when empty. This mag is six month old and speaks volumes as to this critical area.

As a retired engineer, this is how my mind works while looking at new products. When a company makes guns and mags that go into them, the mag becomes an area where they can cut production costs. When the company only makes mags, their entire R&D budget is used on mags. Think about that!

If your 1911 mags have poly followers be sure to check them each time you load. Should this area wear out, your slide will not lock open when empty!

You asked Dave, and I answered with the reasons why I only use Tripp Gen II Cobras for carry!
