Default Which mags for my Ruger Commander 1911

I recently aquired a Ruger Commander 1911 with 2 factory mags. One mag's feed lips aren't uniform with the other. I want to start collecting mags to shoot FMJs & various JHP brands. Any opinions?

Wilson Combat. There's another brand that's very popular here, the name eludes me.. I'm sure someone will chime in.

Ditto on the Wilsons. I think the other premium brand your thinking of is Tripp Research.
I've had no problems at all with Wilson, thus no need to search for a "better" brand. It's really hard to improve on 100%.

Thanks, y'all. I'll see if a buddy will let me use his WC mag. The reviews for Tripp look good too.

Wilson Combat. Tripp Research, Chip McCormack are some of the best.

Canebrake swears by the Tripps. pretty confident in saying that with his engineering background and his knowledge of the 1911 platform, i would feel very sure in in his recommendations on them.

personally i have used and currently use both Wilson Combat and the Chip McCormack mags and have yet to have any problems with either in any type of ammo used in my 1911's.

I'll +1 on the Chip McCormack mags, they've never given me any reason to doubt em, haven't tried the others. Interestingly, my local Handy Ace Hardware carries the McCormack's along with tons of other good stuff and ammo with good prices (they are franchised/individually owned so results will vary if you ever tried yours)...

I've got 18 Wilson Combat 47Ds and they all run 100%. No complaints.

Most all my mags are Wilson or Chip McCormick. I've not had one fail yet. I must admit CAne's endorcement fo rtripps has made me want ot get a few to check them out. they look fantastic. I have a ton of mags though and just have on thought about buying more. Not that I think you can have too many...heh

MecGar makes good magazines, and very affordable.

Other good brands are Metalform and Checkmate.
