I agree with that I ordered the 8 rounder but they were on back order so I went with a 7 rounder I think I may try a few different brands to see which I like best. Would Wilson's be good ones to try and what about mec gar?

I've tried them all and after the Tripp's I have never looked back.

From an earlier post;

Find the weld on the Tripp.



From L to R; Wilson 47DOXB, Wilson ETM 500B, Tripp Cobra



Notice the fluid stampings of the Tripp mag on the left and right. The .45 case head sits square against the back wall of the Tripp mag, the Wilson is rounded and forces the round forward when it presents for stripping. AND, the Tripp mag feed lips are CNC finished.



This photo shows the slide stop interface. The Tripp mag on the bottom uses a hybrid follower with a metal interface where the Wilson on top uses a poly follower interface. The Wilson shows witness-marks where the slide stop engages the mag when empty. This mag is six month old and speaks volumes as to this critical area.

As a retired engineer, this is how my mind works while looking at new products. When a company makes guns and mags that go into them, the mag becomes an area where they can cut production costs. When the company only makes mags, their entire R&D budget is used on mags. Think about that!

If your 1911 mags have poly followers be sure to check them each time you load. Should this area wear out, your slide will not lock open when empty!

You asked Dave, and I answered with the reasons why I only use Tripp Gen II Cobras for carry!

The WC ETM's still "oil-can" and have a poly slide stop interface. Call Aaron @ Tripp (877.837.9445) and order one Gen II Cobra Mag. Put the two side by side and tell me Bill Wilson builds a mag anywhere near the quality of Virgil Tripps!

Default Got 2, (8R-45-RG) Magazine 1911 coming

Well I haven't had any issues with the Shooting Star magazines from CMC but I thought I'd give these a try if Canebrake endorses them they must be the best

I ordered two of the Tripp 7 rd flush mags for my Dan Wesson as well as two of their 7 rd upgrade kits for my two current Checkmate mags. I got flush for carry. It is a range or HD pistol i'd go with the 8 rounders with basepads.

I bought 2 Tripp 7 round mags for my 1911 gun.? And I glued some black leather bumpers on the bottom of them & they work great.? I also bought a couple of 7 round mag kit's from Virgil Tripp.?So that I can change the parts in my other mags to work like the Tripp mags with these kits.?
