What is the reputation of 10rnd. magazines for the 1911? Why do many people choose the 8rnd. magazines over the 10rnd. magazines?

Because the 8 fits flush. Get Wilson, they are good.

You mean the 10 rounders stick out of the magwell? I had no idea. I thought that they were flush, as well.

What about Chip McCormick magazines?

I don't mean to be a smartass, but that is the reason. it was easier to type that then go on about the bulk/size of them.

McCormick is OEM for Kimber, I have heard. Pretty good, but for the price, you are only a little bit off from a Wilson, which are the best.

i've got a McCormik 10rd mag. it sticks out but there is a rubber pad on the bottom of it. i havn't had any problems with it that i can remember. i don't use it much because i only shoot 5rds at a time so i just use my factory mags.

I have Wilson 10 rd mags. They stick out the bottom. The only reason I have them is for 3-gun matches where it saves on reloading during a stage. I use Wilson 47D 8 round mags for CCW.

I'm thinking of picking up a couple. I'll go with the CMC Powermags, better than the Wilsons and they cost less to boot.

I have a couple of the Colt 10 rounders, and 4 Wilson 10 rounders and they all function flawlessly in My Colts

Several shooters at our range (including myself) us the Chip McCormick 10 rounders for
our limited 10 guns. I have been very happy with them. They just run. I think the last ones I
bought at a retail store was around $21. I would highly recommend them & would be very comfortable carrying as extra's if I were to carry my single stack 1911.

I own two Wilson ten round mags. One has given me problems from time to time, the other is "Stone" reliable.

I don't think the CMC mags are Kimber OEM.. The Stainless II I purchased last year came with a 7rnd mag that made CMC's look like fine art in comparison. It's stamped "Kimber" on the base and functions fine though, no matter how rough it looks. They could be OEM for newer (or heck, older!) pistols however.

I have used exclusively CMC Shooting Star 8 round mags and have NEVER had a problem with any of them. They're good bang for the buck.

The guy's shop is close to where my parents live... iffn I ever need a few more mags, I'll have to call them up and see if I can come down and get some from him.

I have used the CMC 10 rounders in my 45s with excellent results. They are too bulky for CCW, but ok for the range etc. Watch-Six

My CMC 10 rounder works fine. I can't use them in IDPA, just bought it on a whim. I've got Colt, CMC and a Kimber, in 7 & 8 rounders. They've all proven very reliable. The springs are getting a little soft in the CMC's but then again, that's why your supposed to change 'em.

I've never owned any Wilson mags. I'd like to but for some silly reason I've never been able to pony up the green for them. Never mind that they arent' much more spendy than those AR-Mags I bought during the "dark period."
