Anyone know the difference between the Chip McCormick Match Grade Magazine vs. the Power Magazine?
Thanks. (MidwayUSA has a sale on the Power Mags right now.)
Power mags are the top of the line offered by them, they come with a 3 year warranty where as the Match grade do not.
The Most Powerful 8rd Magazine - 3 Year Warranty* - Simply put, the hightest quality, most reliable and durable 1911 magazine made. The POWER MAG* is an extra heavy duty magazine designed to significantly increase reliability and service life, even when kept fully loaded and seated in a pistol for extended periods. Stainless Steel construction. Die-controlled tolerances held to +/- .001 inches (over 75% tighter tolerances than Mil-Spec). Eleven (11) extra-powerful coils of aerospace grade Rocket Wire spring. More spring coils, more spring power, than any other 1911 8rd magazine. The huge increase in the spring power pushing upward on each cartridge as it feeds through the POWER MAG will improve the reliability of any 1911 type pistol. Service life is significantly increased as well. Constant usage or loaded and seated in a pistol for extended periods, the extra powerful spring offers maximum resistance against wear and fatique. The newly redesigned integral base pad/base plate is completely removable for convenient cleaning and maintenance. This new design has full length engagement, front to back, between the magazine tube retaining lips and the base pad/base plate grooves to ensure maximum strength and reliability.
