Default How are Kimber mags?

My LGS carries Kimber mags. Decently priced but I want to know about quality and make sure they will fit my RIA.

Standard or aftermarket magazines designed for the 1911 should be interchangeable to every other 1911.

I have 4 Kimber mags, work great but they are used in my Kimber so I can't say for sure. I however think the Wilson combat mags are better.

I have a RIA double stack and had a heck of a time finding replacement mags. Finally I found the sight that sells RIA stock mags. Advancedtactical.com. However my brother has a single stack RIA and he was able to use a Kimber and no name mag in his fine. For me I am going to stick with factory mags. Happy hunting.

I use the Kimber KimPro mags and have been happy. If I wasn't, I'd be using Wilson's.

Tripp Research magazines are top notch. I see no reason to use 1911 mags made by companies that focus on pistols. Tripp focuses on mags!

Magazines are like truck tires-
A few make'em-
Lots have their name on'em
