yes the mags are not the best. it is such a simple fix that for me, it isn't an issue. besides i buy a pistol for the pistol, not the mags! i generally buy many more mags anyways.

I've heard good things about Wilson Combat mags while wondering around the LGS. I'll be making sure to put them way up on my list, right after ammo of course!

Well I broke apart the 1911 to give it a thorough cleaning and clean up the feed ramp. It took a few YouTube videos to figure it out but it's not as bad as I thought it would be (I'm used to Sigs and Glock break downs). Can't wait to shoot it!

After you get the hang of breaking down the 1911 it becomes almost second nature. I absolutely love my HS and I always recommend it to people.

I know some folks prefer the Tripp mags, but I have been using Wilson Combat 8 rd mags and find them flawless. I have 5 or 6 at this point & will get more. YMMV

I did yesterday out down in Lexington. Shot very smoothly and accurately. I fed 60 round of WWB and 8 of the PDX1's I had without a hiccup except the mag liked to keep the slide open with the first round so I had to bump the mag. I'd show some targets but we were shooting empty liquor bottles
