Magazine problems
 
I recently bought a pair of Wilson Combat magazines for my Colt Commander 9mm. After inserting mag and trying to load the first round the gun jams and will not load first round. While looking through the ejector slot I can see the nose of the bullet is up against the bottom of barrel Any ideas

When I insert Colt mag and pull back the slide the bullet is pointed to center opening of barrel but with the Wilson's it's pointed down hence jamming at bottom of barrel

Besides sending the mags to Wilson, it sounds like the mag lips are not adjusted correctly.
Could you post a pic of the Colt and Wilson mags together?

i was kind of thinking the same thing, the feed lips of the mag, may not be allowing the follower to come up at the right angle. might be a bad follower as well.

I'd suggest buying the ones that work, presuming they are still available.
