The .38Super will work for the 9mm, but the 9mm does not work for the .38Super.

Isn't that a "Officer" sized 1911?
Colt or WC should be good-

The mag that I got with it is weird shaped in the front instead of just round like normal mags. Thanks for all inputs.

Okay thanks. I've found STI mags but they want like $50 something. Seems bit expensive so wanted to get a couple extra mags.

STI mags should be okay.

A lesson I learned on mags for my .45:
Store "A" had a bunch of mags for sale. The .45 mags went for under $10 a piece. I bought 10. By the time that I sorted out the good from the bad, cannibalized a couple, I had one good mag that was dependable. Spent a little under $100 for one stinking mag. My money would have been better spent on a couple of mags costing $35 each.

The mag is the critical part of any semi-auto. If it breaks, your firearm is a single shot (at best).

Don't scrimp on the mag. Buy the quality and piece-of-mind. It is well worth it.

(I've spent over $75 for one mag for my H&K PSP P7)
