    OEM 10 round mags work good with zero failures. Not a big fan of extended mags except they are easy to seat with the extra length. I may get 1 or 2 flush mags for IWB carry. Any recommendations? Maybe an 8 round Wilson? Thanks

    Edit; 9mm

    You mention OEM 10 rounders, is this a 9mm gun?

    Sorry Guys. Yes, 9mm. My bad. I did order (2) blued 9-round Mec-Gar mags today. If they work out I may try their stainless mags.

    Thanks for clarifying.
    I don't think a full size 8 round Wilson 9mm mag is a thing, or from anybody else for that matter, which is one reason I asked.

    Ordering an 8 round 9mm mag would probably get you a Compact/Officer size mag that would be too short for your gun.

    I like the Metalform-Springfield-Leatham "front ramp" magazine when 9 rounds is enough. Flat bottom, seats flush.

    The plain old 1950 type ain't bad, and my gun feeds 9mm from the Metalform.38 Super magazine with their rounded follower

    JTG, I think you are right about the 8-round. I'm trying to learn. So a 9-round flush is what I'm looking for, I think! Gonna find out soon. I knew my commander grip was the same as a full-size. I was thinking that my extended was +2. I should have known better because I have several 7 and 8 round 45's.

    Jim Watson, Thanks! If I have any trouble with the Mac-Gar's that I ordered, I may try the Metalform.

    Tripp, Wilson, or McCormick.

    Also that's a great budget 1911. Great quality, fitting, and trigger for the price.

    My 2 new Mec-Gar mags work fine with no failures (100 rounds, 2 brands of FMJ). I'll eventually try something else in search of perfection.

    Madcap, Thanks, I'm really liking it. I have a couple nice GI in 45. The Bul is my first Commander and first 9mm 1911.
