Is the gun a range lizard or is it a personal defense (carry) piece?

If it's a plinker, go for it.

If you carry for PD, walk away!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

what price is your life worth when a cheap mag malfuctions on you at the worst possible time?

personally i use a lot of Wilson Combat mags and i know for a fact that Cane will recommend the Tripp mags. cheap is relative when it comes down to what works reliabily each and every time. please don't cheap out, as it's not worth it in the long run.

If you never listen to me before, do yourself a favor and pay attention to this old man.

Get the best!

Tripp Research, Gen II Cobra Magazines (I say that because they ARE the best....and NO they don't pay me to say it!)



Tripp Research Inc. 1911 Magazines Call Aaron @ Tripp (877.837.9445) and order one. (Tell him canebrake said hi.)



From L to R; Tripp Cobra, Wilson 47DOXB, Wilson ETM 500B, Tripp Cobra

Find the weld on the Tripp.



From L to R; Wilson 47DOXB, Wilson ETM 500B, Tripp Cobra



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

I checked out the website and it looks like they are from Check-Mate Industries. They stamp their patent info on the base plates on their mags like the picture (although I didn't verify the patent number).

Hope that helps!

Can you afford to trust your life on the function of "iffy" magazines?
