    Using the term "clip" interchangeably with the term "magazine" demonstrates your limited knowledge on firearms.

    And to answer the question, there are no clips designed for usage on the 1911 platform handgun.

    Oh yeah, here we go again. Of course he knew what the guy was talking about. Why do people have to be so arrogant and rude over these petty issues? Just inform the person what the proper term is and let it go! People join these forums for the information, not to be belittled and insulted.

    Of all the 1911 magazines I have tried I like the ones made by Wilson Combat the best.

    There are many discussions in the 1911 section on magazines for the 1911. Generally you get what you pay for, start with chip mcormick then wilson combat. The best out there by far from people who have tried them like myself are tripps cobra mags.

    Exactly this. When I first joined here I knew next to nothing about guns. I asked a million very basic questions and was treated with kindness and patience. Let's do the same for all. I am deleting the rude answers in this thread.

    Winds!

    You are absolutely correct. There are those who have just came on board with us here on the FTF in order to learn about their new found interest in firearms or renewing a past interest for the sport, shooting and weapons. We all learn form being a member here. And for some of us one of the main reason we are here is also to educate and assist the new folks here and the ones joining in the future. Not that we know it all, but we need to pass along what ever little we do know. Politeness is a key and education is our goal. They are the voters and promoters of tomorrow to pass on and protect our Second Amendment and preserve the sport. I am sure some do not intend come across as they do. But since we can not look the person in the eye revealing our intent of joking, kidding or being direct we should use a little caution. Words/text are sometimes more direct than we intend them to be. I am guilty of some of this myself especialy when it comes to the present views of the political climate in the USA. There are great people here and great people joining us!:)

    God Bless America!

    Let's use the "search" function.
    1911 Magazines - Tripp will be the ones mentioned most. There is a reason. They are the best.
    Colt 1911 - Canebrake will be the one associated with that answer. If you don't know why, then search on Canebrake.
    Cookies - WoC! Enough said.

    The OP has been in the 1911 area (and has read several posts) and knew that most will answer "Tripp" to the "clip" question.

    Ok first I do know the proper term is magazine and realize this but clip is easier to say and type when I'm quoting some one a new axle I don't say constant velocity shaft I say cv I know that's not a great analogy but as long as I'm getting my point across isn't that what matters thanks for all the help and input guys :)

    Clip is one letter longer than mag ----
    CV joint is way different than a axle-
    Both terms are entirely different--
    Get my point?

    Hoss and danf Isn't the point of a forum to discuss what works and what doesn't issues or non issues not meaning this in a rude way but no one asked you specifically for your opinion if all you had to say was to complain about my thread and say i should already know then just don't say any thing come on guys really
