Yes. I find mags that work with my weapon, regardless of who makes them, and when they run 100% of the time, THAT is when I buy a bunch of them, test them and the ones that are 100% reliable I trust me life with.

Anyone that buy's "brand X" and trusts their life to them without doing their own testing is asking for really bad outcomes.

Facts being facts - if you have an $8 mag that is 100% reliable, and a $50 mag that is 80% reliable, what are you going to carry??

Cane, and all others - thanks! The photos were superb in showing the details of differences. I think I have a decent grasp of the "whys" now.

When I purchased my 1911 back in the early 90's there as a sale going on for Colt 7 and 8rd mag at Ajax Grips. I bought about 20 of each for a total of 40 mags. The 7rd were $4.50 and the 8rd were $6.00. To this day I have never had a problem with any of them. 100% feedability and realiability.

I've had good luck with Chip McCormick's in my Springfields.
Haven't tried any other brands yet.

I' have always used Wilson Combat ever since my IPSIC days. As soon as I' get a 1911 I' ditch the factory mags and buy a few Wilson's.

I use Shooting Star mags mostly and have been trouble free. I recently bought some Wilson mags too and I do really like them. I can't say one is better than the other as they have both been working flawlessly.
