Default Magazine Question

I just got a RIA 1911 tactical, i am in the 10 wating period because CA is a commi state. The magazine it comes with is 8 rounds. I found some old 7 round 1911 mags, will those work on this gun?

I would not know I have another 7 days until I can pick the gun up from the store. Basically this was a general question if a 1911 can accept 7, 8, and 10 round mags. If I were a patient person I would just wait till I get the gun in hand and find out.

The only difference between the 7 and 8 round mags is the follower.
