Both pistols are ARMSCOR with different brand names but I only got one mag and it had a tighter bend on the lips than either one of his. I have 3 Wilsons coming and will repeat my little test with a cleaned gun and those mags, probably should have waited they will be here tomorrow but what's a Monday off without gunfire? BTW we set up a gallon jug at 50 yards as a hoot and two blind old me put a fair number of holes in it, as long as the mag problems get solved this little cheapie is a keeper it is much more pleasant to shoot than my G27.
it seems that sometimes the magazines supplied with the lesser expensive 1911's are one area where they tend to cheap out. IMO, this isn't a big issue since most are going to buy more magazines anyways.
i pretty much buy either the Wilson Combats or the Chip McCormack Shooting Star magazines to use in my 1911's. the Tripp Research magazines get lots of good reviews as well from those who use them.
