    Cane/Anyone,
    I have colts, kimbers and sig sauers and a Remington for all my 1911's. I have everything from a 3 inch compact, 4 inch commander, and of course the 5 inch. What type of magazines would you recommend? Regardless of price. I want the best. Thank you everyone for your help, Ed

    The big three that i have seen recommended have been Tripp Research, Wilson Combat and Chip Mccormick.

    I have some Tripps and McCormick's, both are great in all 15 of my 1911s.

    ive got more than a few real milsurp mags that i got from our arms room when the army transitioned from 1911 to the berreta pos m9.

    the work flawless in all my guns. there are a lot of gunshow 1911 mags from china and korea vendors try to pass off as real.

    I switched to Tripp mags last year or so and bought rebuild kits for my Wilsons and McCormicks. So, I have a number of Tripp Cobra's and my others have Tripp springs and followers.

    I have the wilson combat "elite" apparently they have thicker walls than just Wilson combat. Also heard amazing things about Tripp cobra mags.

    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! If you don't agree, I will buy the Tripp from you and pay the shipping both ways! cane
