So you prefer the CMC 10 rounder over the Trip?buckhorn_cortez said:Tripp, Wilson, CMC Power Mag Plus - take your choice they all work reliably. Wilson will replace the magazine for free if there is a manufacturing defect problem or the feed lips bend. This doesn't include standard wear items like the spring or follower.
I use Wilson ETM and CMC Power Mag Plus magazines and have never had a problem with either of them. In 10 round magazines, the CMC Power Mag Plus is the best design I've found.
Yes. I use the 10 round magazines with a pistol that has a magazine well. It is possible to over insert the Tripp magazines because the magazine only has a small piece of hard plastic at the front to stop it when inserted.So you prefer the CMC 10 rounder over the Trip?
Very good info. Thanks for taking the time to elaborate. I heard CMC tweaked their mags and marked them with a "12" to address magwell issues with some TRP's.buckhorn_cortez said:Yes.

If you look at the CMC magazines, they have a piece of rubber material at the bottom of the magazine that wraps around the entire magazine. That stops it from inserting too far into the magazine well.
Also, I use the CMC Power Mag Plus magazines as they have an improved follower design when compared to the CMC Power Mag.
I have 5 of each type of magazine: Tripp, CMC Power Mag, CMC Power Mag Plus. After testing them for about a year, the CMC Power Mag Plus magazines provide better magazine changes than the Tripps and the follower on the Power Mag Plus give a little bit better feeding in the particular pistol I have.
As with everything 1911 - your pistol(s) make like something different, and testing with your pistol is the only way to verify magazine reliability. That being said, I don't think you could go wrong starting with the CMC Power Mag Plus 10 round magazines as I use mine in four different 1911 pistols with --zero-- function problems.
