That's because the Tripp Cobra mag is made for a 1911 pattern pistol!
I use Tripp Gen 2 Cobra Mags in my Colt's and have NEVER had an issue!
Call Tripp Research (1-877-837-9445), ask for Aaron and have him tell you the difference between a 7 round mag made to work as a 8 round and and an 8 round mag designed from the get-go. Or better yet, ask for Virgil Tripp and get the info from the horses mouth!
Tell him you got the phone number from the FTF! Tell him he needs to become a vendor here.
OBTW, give Bill Wilson (870-545-3635) or Chip McCormick (830-798-2863) a call and compare notes. I betcha you never talk to either one of them!
In my carry piece, I will run nothing but Cobra Mags!
