Hello. I just bought a spare mag for my SA Loaded Govt Model 1911. I think I bought the wrong one and wanted to confirm it before I put bullets in it.

It's a CMC Shooting Star 7 rd for " M1911 Officer Owners ". They ran out of the 8 rounders and being a newb to 1911's, I thought that the 7 and 8 rd mags were interchangeable. I have a feeling I'm wrong and would like to verify my ignorance. Thanks.

A 7-round Officer's Model magazine is shorter than a Government Model 7-round magazine, and as such, wont work in your gun.

Thank you very much. I put them side by side, and I knew it didn't jive. I'll have to wait until Monday to exchange it. Lesson learned. Thanks again...or does this mean I have to buy an Officer's model?? hmmm...
