I am going to order a couple of new mags for my Springfield 1911 a1 and have decided on getting the Tripp cobra. My question is should I get the 7 or the 8? I am wondering how the 8 rounders will look, do they stick out a long way or pretty flush like the 7 rounder would.

If u have a full size government frame, the 8 rounders will be flush.

I have a novak 8-rounder for my rock island full size, it sticks out the bottom of the mag well but has a grip extension on it, it only sticks out a 1/2 to 3/4 inch so its not an issue. Im not familar with the brand your buying but it think a single stack 8-rounder in .45 acp would be the same as mine

Call Aaron @ Tripp (877.837.9445) and tell him what gun you have and he will tell you the best mag for your situation.

If you have a mag-well or using your gun in competition, you will want to have drop pads on the base.



If you want GI type mags go with the welded floor mags.



Tripp also has an alloy base option that looks/works great for my Colt with the S&A Mag-guide.

Good looking gun I have a sig n cost around a grand. What you pay for yours, half way tempted to buy one and turn it into the punisher

When purchasing mags, quality is very important.

Yes, you could go to a military clearing house and pick up some inexpensive mags (let's say 5 mags for $7.00 each = $35.00).
By the time you sort out the bad ones, you're down to 1 mag. In my book, that makes the 1 mag worth $35.00 + the time you wasted.

In my thinking, $35.00 for a quality mag is worth it. (I've paid over $125.00 for 1 mag before).

What's your life worth? $35 seams like a bargain for my carry gun!
