Is there any reason why this isn't a great idea???

In my experience, the reliability of mags goes down in proportion to the amount of extra rds they try to get you to squeeze in. The 8 rounders seem to work ok but I have had issues with the "trick" higher capacity mags.

Also you have to be ok with a non-flush fitting mag, the 8 rounders barely hang out, 10 round sticks definitely will.

you can also ram them in too far if you're too enthusiastic - some have a shelf to act as a spacer in a .gov size frame, much like slamming a .gov size mag into an officer frame

I have two for my Marlin Camp 45. Also have a Wilson Combat 10-rounder. Both function quite well. But then again, I'm using them in a carbine, not a pistol.

I've had a number of the Chip McCormic mags in 7, 8 and 10 round all worked fine with my Springfield and RIA 1911. Both of these guns however have steel frames and have seen some complaints about one of the magazines being used in alloy framed guns marking the feed ramps.

They have worked fine for me. YMMV.

I can't speak to the 10-rounders, but the 8-round Chip McCormick Power Mags have been 100% reliable in my Colt Government XSE.

Appreciate the input guys!

I prefer 8 round magazines that are flush with the bottom of the grip. 8+1 is plenty of ammunition for me. If I want more I'll get a Glock.

I carry the 8 rd in the gun and the 10 rd for backup. Never had any trouble with them.

I used 10 round mags for a long while including on-duty. They were always 100 percent.

No experience with the tens, but the eight rounders have been completely reliable in my ATI.

I have several of the 10rd mags. Have not any issues with them. If extra capacity is needed, they work well.

I have one 10-rounder for my government model, it functions perfectly fine but I feel like it throws off the balance of the gun when fully loaded.

Have always heard good things about the Chip McM mags but the one that I bought just doesn't work in my RI 1911. First round fires and the mag disengages. Slap it back again and the next round fires but the mag drops again. Tried different ammo types and the same thing happens. Just doesn't work except to make my 1911 a single shot gun. Not good.

I have several 8 rounder's and 1 10 round mag. All have been 100%. I wouldn't carry the 10 round mag, but it is in a gun that says at home.

Well, Hell, they've been using them in USPSA L10 since the division started. They ae fine, and completely reliable. If McComicks 7 or 8 round mags work with your gun these should too.

I use Tripp Cobramags, both 7 and 10 rounders. The 10 are obviously not flush-fit, but the reliability is outstanding with both the 7 and 10.
