Has anyone had any experience with these mags? They will be used in a charles daly.
1. Mitchell arms manufacturing (http://www.cdnninvestments.com/cdnn/1945ac8rdsta3.html)
2.Chip McCormick mags (http://www.cdnninvestments.com/cdnn/198rdtamawbl.html)

Also, do the 10 round mags function as well as the standard mags? AND if either of these brands have no good responses what brands do work well? Remember under $20.00 a mag

I've used a lot of the CMC mags. They work well when new, but their springs seem to need replacement after a year or two.

I pretty much use Wilson 47Ds now for all of my 1911's but they are more than $20/mag new. I have found them as low as $22/mag on sale.

I have four Chip McCormick Power 10s. They worked without fail in everything except for my TLE, which does not like one of them. I use them for the range. For the bed side, I have Wilson Combat 8 rounders.

Without hesitation, I would encourage you to purchase Wilson Combat magazines. I have never had a magazine failure with a Wilson in any gun. A Wilson will make any 1911 run better. They are a bit more expensive but entirely worth it.

Got a couple of C.M. mags. works just fine. But, I carry Wilson mags for every day use. Remember...your life may depend upon total reliablity.

I hear good things about the McCormicks, but I use Wilson 47D's and they work great.

DON'T use McCormicks on aluminum frames - McCormick mags and aluminum frames...
