I picked up a Rock Island 1911 over the weekend. I wanted to introduce myself to the 1911 world and thought, for $420, why not. Who makes good extra mags and where can I get them? Thanks!

Act or Novaks probably came with the gun. I recently pick some Checkmate and Metalform mags. Both brands have ran smooth, but have not seen a lot of use. I am sure that there are others out there that work without problems.

Seems like your higher dollar mags are worth the extra money over the lifetime of shooting.

all i can say is avoid buying the 10-round wilson combat mags, the one i got would routinely cause a jam especially the last round. never had any problems with the standard 8-round mags

I've had good luck with Chip McCormick mags. The 8, 7 and even the 10 round mags have worked fine for me.

The Wilson's are supposed to be the best. I have several and they have been perfect, but the McCormicks I've owned have never let me down either and they are about 50% less expensive.

Kimber mags work well for me.

The McCormick "shooting star" magazines have been flawless and are relatively inexpensive.

I used nighthawk custom one's in the 1911 I had and they worked great and were pretty cheap from Brownell's.

I'll bet a dozen doughnuts that Chip McCormick makes those Kimber mags.

I've had good luck with Act mags but they weren't being used in a RIA 1911.

If it won't run with this Check-Mate GI style mag (http://www.topgunsupply.com/check-mate-.45acp-7rd-ss-gi-full-size-1911-magazine.html) from Top Gun Supply, it isn't the mags fault. Buy a couple or three. Their 8 round mag (http://www.topgunsupply.com/check_mate-1911-stainless-45acp-magazine.html) is very good as well. I love my Check-Mate mags. I prefer the "hybrid or "GI" feed lips.

I use the five Chip McCormick 8-round mags that I bought for my Kimber for my RIA. They all work perfectly.

Thanks for the mag tips! Time for me to stock up and hit the range!

they are 1911 pistols an dany mag will work in them, but I have never had any failures with the old mags, so that's my preference. It is a carry pistol and very reliable and accurate, long-lasting.

Check the 1911.org site for ARMSCOR/RIA pistols and you will find a lot of happy owners.
