I am sure this has been covered already but I didn't want to spend the time to look for it and if it has I do apologize......

I have been carrying my Remington 1911 R1 S as my CCW since the XDS is still at SA. I have the 2 mags that came with the gun but have come to the conclusion 2 is not enough. My questions are how many is enough and who makes a good quality mag for a 1911????? Thank you.

I don't know how many are enough, but you can never have too many.

No such thing as a "spare" mag in a gunfight!

Lol anyways in the civilian world mags still won't last forever,I usually keep at least 5 or 6 per handgun with the exception of my p938,of which I have three.

Wilson,Tripp Research (my fav),and chip McCormick seem to be the Go-To's of most serious 1911 fanatics.

Was wondering about Wilsons because they are about 15 miles from here. Like to keep my dollars local if I can. Thanks!!!!

Id like to try a few of the Wilson's. I mostly use the Kimber tac-pro mags, no issues so far in 2 different pistols. $30 apiece tho.

The magazine is the Achilles heel of the semi-auto.

Go for the best you can buy (the brands have been listed).

My factory 1911 mag compared to Willson combat is light years apart. I feel like the 15+1 I carry n my m&p is plenty but and extra never hurts

To the question, Wilson Combat mags for my 45acp, Kimbers for my 38 Super. I know this is a rhetorical question, and I fully expect to get beaten up for asking it, (again). You've got two mags, 14 +1 rounds of 45acp, arguably the Holy Grail of SD ammo. How much more do you figure you need?

I normally carry a total of three mags.

But whether you carry a total of 2 or 3, the idea of having one good extra magazine in the gun storage area is a good idea.
