Default Check-Mate Mags

I'm new here and have been doing a lot of reading here and at other 1911 forums.

Was wondering if anyone has any experience w/ Check-Mate Industries mags? On Cane's recommendation I've purchased a Tripp and I'm trying it out but Check-Mate was recommended in this series of reviews. Has there been any discussion on his findings?

My only experience is with their M1A magazines and they are top quality.

I used some in the military for my m-4, we didnt have as many of them as the standerd colt mags but I never heard of any one having a problem with one.

Their M14 mags are the best avail, and are the only USGI supplier (since the 80's).

Their M9 mags were terrible, but have been redesigned.

Have not used their 1911 mags. Tripps are the shizzle. Metalforms are flawless for me, as well.

Mild hijack, but along the same lines, what do you all think about Chip McCormick Custom mags?

Good mags. They used to be made by Metalform and branded for CM. Not sure if they still are.
