I have yet to see Tripp Cobras in a retailer. Order on-line.

Had to send my Kimber off for several issues (feeding, brass ejecting at me, etc), seems like they got it all fixed the first time. Since then I've only had one failure to feed. That was with the Chip McCormick mags. I had the slide locking open early a couple times with cheap 230 gr ammo.

Haven't shot my Kimber mags lately but in think they were good when I did.

Cool, I book marked the link. I'll be looking to pick up more mags after the holidays.
I guess after all the recommendations I'll give'em a shot.

I've never herd of a break in on mags so at the first sign of failure I just moved on lol
Glad you got your pistol sorted out
Mines a series one, an older pistol but I love it. I carry it every day and with my exp with it and the Wilson mags I'd not hesitate to carry it or bet it all on it

Kinda off topic, but how was you exp with Kimbers customer service?

I was a little worried about their customer service but they fixed everything at no cost and even payed shipping both ways. LGS shipped it off for me. I think they told Kimber that I had just bought it brand new, which wasn't entirely true.

Nice! Definitely a shop I'd do repeat business with! Good to hear they took care of everything, there's so much said about their CS as 2nd hand knowledge. Always nice to hear first hand accounts!

Put about 200 rounds through the new stainless Kimber mags, not one single failure of any kind. Even the cheap TulAmmo that was causing the slide to lock open early sometimes was no problem at all. Reloads were fine, hollow points were fine. Guess I've found my mags, at least for this gun.
