they're decent. not the worst, but not the best. Mec-Gar makes mags for lots of firearms makers as OEM mags. they also make mags for guns no longer made and for guns that even the makers don't offer anymore. $10 each is a decent price if they are in good shape and depending on the finish.

Never tried one for my 1911, but I have a bunch (means more than 6) of their 18 round 9mm mags for my Sig P226. Never an issue, no FTF.

For that price, try them. If they work for you, good. If they do not work, then you don't have that much invested.

They are pretty decent. The ones for my Hi Power are great. The ones for my 1911 work except they dont lock the slide back after the last round.

Never had a problem with them in any 1911 I own. The only mags I have ever had a problem with are the gun show ones my buddy picked up at a gun show for 8 bucks. Learned to buy decent mags after that.

Good for range mags.

I do carry Mec-Gar in my BHP.

Never tried their 1911 mags but the ones I have for my BHP, P08 Luger and 5906 work great.

At that price, jump on them.

The ones I have in 1911 are crap. I'm going to be replacing the internals due to failure to lock back

Yeah for one, it's intermittent, the other everytime, but only if it's 3 or more rounds being fired. So they'll get the tripp research upgrade as soon as I have the bling.
