    My LGS carries Kimber mags. Decently priced but I want to know about quality and make sure they will fit my RIA.

    Standard or aftermarket magazines designed for the 1911 should be interchangeable to every other 1911.

    I have 4 Kimber mags, work great but they are used in my Kimber so I can't say for sure. I however think the Wilson combat mags are better.

    I have a RIA double stack and had a heck of a time finding replacement mags. Finally I found the sight that sells RIA stock mags. Advancedtactical.com. However my brother has a single stack RIA and he was able to use a Kimber and no name mag in his fine. For me I am going to stick with factory mags. Happy hunting.

    I use the Kimber KimPro mags and have been happy. If I wasn't, I'd be using Wilson's.

    Tripp Research magazines are top notch. I see no reason to use 1911 mags made by companies that focus on pistols. Tripp focuses on mags!

    Kimber makes will be alright for the range but since my 1911 only came with 1 mag anyways I bought 4 more Wilson combat mags.
