    i picked up 3 chip mccormick power mags (8 rounders) that have worked well in a few of my 1911s. solid construction, powerful springs, round count holes on both sides that are labeled on both sides as well. the bottom of the mags do not fit flush with the frame, they will stick out a little bit just FYI.

    Chips powermags are about 2/3 of the cost of wilson combat mags and they have been 100% for me. i figured if todd jarrett only uses chip mccormicks they must be ok...

    the chip mags, are worth more than just a look. they are reliable to say the least, and they are pretty inespensive compared to the competition out there. i have been shooting 1911's a long time, and i even owned one that i had for a good while, and every 1911, that i have shot and or used, i use chip mags.

    I have used Wilson 47Ds for years. Change the springs periodically and they act like energizer bunnies. A few years ago I bought a dozen Power Mags from some reason I've since forgotten. Haven't seen much use, but they run just fine. Also, bought a dozen of CMC's 10 rounders for occasional IPSC use and they also run fine.

    The Power Mags are less expensive than Wilsons, but if you shop around you can get the price within a few bucks.

    I use Wilson 47Ds and Wilson ETMs and have never had a problem. I recently purchased a Tripp Cobra mag and it has been flawless so far.

    I have 5 Chip McCormick Shooting Star 8 round magazines that work flawlessly. My only complaint is that the base plates cannot be removed to allow for detailed cleaning. Despite this, none of the 5 have failed in any way.

    mags

    seems mags have come a long way lately.although i only use CM mags ive found wilson and a few others to be just as reliable. I like chip m mags because of the flush fit.ive got some that i bought at a show about 10 yrs. ago loaded them and one day i test them.they were colt forgeries im sure but we will see

    I prefer Chip McCormick Powermags over the Wilsons and other brands that I also have.

    All I use are CMC 10 round power mags. I have 3 and have shot over 2000 rounds without any problems. I highly recommend them. They are on sale at Midway now for $23.99

    I bought 8 Wilson service mags last year, they were reduced to 14.95.
    Get the base pads, they're worth it. I got them primarily for IDPA, but carry one without the pad in my S&W 1911 daily.
