He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

Thankyou!
I can get behind that one as well...

But the selling of the cloak has been a debated issue, me thinks. Why does that make my my synapeseez to rapid fire? Dang it, I'm gonna have to go webz surfing or fail to sleep this eve.

You can buy upgrade kits online but to get the best customer service in the gun industry, call Tripp and ask for Aaron. He is Virgil Tripp's son and will get the correct parts to fix the Wilson problem!

Tripp Research, Inc.

Call (877)837-9445 and if Shari answers you won't need to talk to Aaron, she is every-bit as knowledgeable and can get the repair parts on the way to you.

I recommend you get the complete upgrade kit rather than just the follower. The kit includes a proprietary spring that is far superior to the music wire springs used in most of today’s 1911 mags.

Talk to this company, have them explain why their product is so much better than any competition. When you call ask to talk to Virgil Tripp. He will be glad to discuss any technical questions you may have. Try that with Bill Wilson or Chip McCormick.

Read about Virgil Tripp’s background. He has a storied history and is indisputably qualified to bring a brilliantly designed product to market.

When you call don't forget to tell them you read about their product on the FirearmsTalk.com forum and recommend they become a vendor here!
Thanks, I ordered some Trip mags because of your explanation and great photos. I will call them and see about the upgrade on the Wilson mags.
Thanks again.

Necessary evil on bull-barrel 1911s as there's no bushing to hold it together...
