    I bought a used Sig 1911 Target and immediately had bad jamming problems. I read on various Forums that the Wilson Combat Mags were great and I bought two. Sure enough they fixed the jamming problem 100%.

    I'm not knocking Sig because it was used gun. The previous owner might have altered the Sig mags? Who knows?

    But I still had the faulty mags. I read that a company called Tripp Research sold replacement 7-round springs and followers. I bought two kits. The springs are much stronger than what was in the old Sig Mags and doesn't let the rounds nose down.

    The old Sig mags work great now. I just want to give a thank you to Tripp Research.

    I love SIG 1911s and have about a dozen of them but the factory SIG mags are garbage. I use the same mags you bought; Wilson Combat ETMs and Tripp Cobras and the SIGs run flawlessly with them.

    Mine came with ACT mags and they have functioned flawlessly.

    Wilson and Tripp are the best in the biz; the 1911 magazine biz, that is. CMC is excellent also.

    The factory mags with the Target variant I have run well. The Wilson 47D old and new ones function fine as well. The older Shooting Star mags I have two that are beginning to feed differently. Those are the oldest with the most rounds through them, will have to check the spring lengths.

    My Sig 1911 (railed XO) has 10,000+ rounds and fed SWC reloads without issues from factory mags, Chip McCormick Power mags and Wilson Combat 47D mags.

    While I have yet to replace Sig 1911 mag springs (replaced the recoil spring with Wolff/Wilson Combat springs), replacing mag/recoil springs when worn resolved feeding related issues with various 1911s.

    I've had my chops busted several times for suggesting people throw the stock $15 mag in the garbage. The fact remains that, for 1911s especially, a good quality mag is a factor in whether your pistol will run or not.
