What is the highest capacity single stack mag you have seen or heard of for a 1911.
Factory made or other?........I saw some guy in PA. that had one about a foot and a half long....musta been about a 25 or 30 rounder........It did not malfunction either.....When I asked him about it he did not really want to talk about it.... so I backed off.
Anybody else see one of these things?

A 15rd 1911 .45acp mag that worked in a .25acp Raven! Wow! That would be neat to see.

It is possible by changing caliber and follower (but not modifying the magazine permanently, otherwise you are manufacturing a Hi cap = Felony) so that a wide body 1911 magazine in 40 S&W can hold 28 rounds of ammunition, IPSC shooters have been doing this for awhile.

I have seen single stack 20's, 30's and variations on that theme.

Anything longer than 20's would probably be too unwieldly to serve any real purpose.

I seem to recall seeing a snail-drum 1911 magazine. (Or am I thinking of the magazines for the artillery Lugers?)

Yeah, I saw a snail drum for a 1911 selling at a online auction a while ago, it was commanding a high price (about as much as a new Colt).

I have seen single stack 45 mags in 15 and 25 rounds. Just a couple days ago I saw them NIW 25 rounds from some one I will look again.

My IPSC mags in 40cal @ 140mm will hold 18 rounds, the max with different base pads and follower and work is 20 rounds. Para's will get 21 rounds in 40 cal with the right set up. The big sticks 170mm in 40 cal have had 25 rounds and 28 rounds in a 170mm in 38 super which is common in IPSC open class. In limited where 40 makes major 140mm is the max mag length. Any mod to a 10 round mag to make it hold more then 10 rounds in illegal. If your mag holds 13 and you change the follower to make it hold 17 thats cool. Two 10 round mags welded togther is illegal, two preban 15 rounders welded together is ok.

Yes its true. Before the ban, you could do anything to a mag. you can still do anything to them aslong as they are preban.
I know how you feel:banghead:

The Taylor Drum was a 32 round affair (I think and correct me guys if I'm wrong). It was named after Chuck Taylor and saw a short production life. Didn't have a .45 then and didn't want one. Oh, if only I had the wisdom to buy a couple. Betcha that 50 round drum for the Thompson can be adapted though. ;) But who would want to "ruin" a Thompson drum? :(

I have a real big single stack mag for a 1911 that I bought probably 20 years ago. I don't remember now, but it is something like 25 or 30 rounds. It doesn't work and never did. The spring is too weak I think. Even if it worked it is nothing more than a novelty. I don't even have an idea as to where it is now.
