Factory mags or fancy name brand?
 
I love mentioning my new Sig Scorpion 1911!! But this time I have a real reason.

My Sig came with 2 mags, Nice! I want one maybe 2 more.

Now any real difference between the Sig factory or say Chip Mccormick or what not?

The Scorpion has a mag well and needs a plate to go flush. I wonder if a flat plate can be pushed up into the well?

The wilson combat mags are a blessing as well as the chip McCormick power mags. I use both and they both function flawlessly.

on the Chip mags, are they power+ mags, match grade, or just the power mags?

My experience w/1911 mags, as long as they are quality they function. I like the WC mags because they are a little easier to load. Not that any of them are difficult, the Wilsons just seem a little smoother.

JMHO.

Quality mags are the only way to go.

Some manufacturers do not use quality mags, and some do.

Fancy names do not necessarily mean quality.
