    I love mentioning my new Sig Scorpion 1911!! But this time I have a real reason.

    My Sig came with 2 mags, Nice! I want one maybe 2 more.

    Now any real difference between the Sig factory or say Chip Mccormick or what not?

    The Scorpion has a mag well and needs a plate to go flush. I wonder if a flat plate can be pushed up into the well?

    The wilson combat mags are a blessing as well as the chip McCormick power mags. I use both and they both function flawlessly.

    on the Chip mags, are they power+ mags, match grade, or just the power mags?

    My experience w/1911 mags, as long as they are quality they function. I like the WC mags because they are a little easier to load. Not that any of them are difficult, the Wilsons just seem a little smoother.

    JMHO.

    Quality mags are the only way to go.

    Some manufacturers do not use quality mags, and some do.

    Fancy names do not necessarily mean quality.

    Just about any high quality mag will work in a 1911. I stay away from ProMag's. I have never had any luck with those. I have Chip McCormick, Colt, Springfield, and MecGar mags to name a few. Never have tried Tripp though, but all I hear is good things about them.
