mine are wilson combat, which is what I thought! just been so long since I ordered them, or looked that closely at them.

mine are the 10 round, wilson combat mags, with the positive stop to prevent over-inserting them. and that reminded me of the problem guys on the team were having with the McCormick the "heat of the moment" guys would jamb them into the mag-well, and with no positive stop, would over-insert them.

I have to side with Cane on this one. I have shot 1911's for years now and tried every mag that is out there.

The Tripps' mags are head and shoulders above everything else out there. I rebuilt a Taurus 1911 for a friend and got him 3 Tripps mags to go with the one lone Taurus provided mag. When he opened the case and checked out the Tripps' the Taurus mag went back in the box and he now carries Condition 1 with (2) trips in an off side mag holster (courtesy of CA357 )

Buy the Tripps - you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Just to satisfy myself, I ordered the Wilson ETM mag and one of Tripp's for the 45 ACP. I just got the ETM yesterday but the Trip Cobra hasn't gotten here yet. I also ordered extra springs for both. I was comparing the ETM with an older 47D mag and the only difference I see physically is the the mag lips on the ETM seem to have a shorter release point plus there is a slight indention on the right side of the magazine at the lip, right below the follower. Other than that, I see no other difference. I don't know about the springs if there's a difference or not. Range time will give me an idea.

The mags ive found that work the best are the older ones made to jmb's specs. Ive bought a few modern remakes here and there and they have always been given away or traded off with a 1911 i didnt care for.

I havent tried a tripp mag yet but if i need a new one its what ill get as most of the good milsurp stuff has pretty much dried up
