I've had my SW1911 for about three months now and I have 4 Wilson mags for it. The two I purchased and the two that came with the gun have been 100% reliable. I will probably purchase at least a couple more Wilsons but I was wondering if there are any other mags that owners of the SW1911 have had good luck with? The Chip McCormicks are supposed to be good and they sell for about $10 less than the Wilsons. Thanks in advance.

I think I will. A freind called me last night to tell me about his father's new Kimber CC stainless. He said the last rnd and sometimes the 2cnd to last round are failing to feed. My bud knew that I had had the same problem with my Kimber CC. This is why I sold my Kimber. When I had my Kimber I had only the 2 mags it came with and some cheap gunshow specials. I later learned more about 1911s and their mags. I told my bud that I think Kimber makes good pistols and then sends them out the door with shitty mags. He is coming over today to borrow a couple of my Wilsons for a comparison. I don't think he'll have any problems. My point, after all this rambling, is that I'll be sticking with Wilson mags after last night.

On Tuesday I'll be testing out 4 new 8 round Mec-Gars.I'll let you know how reliable they are.I think Mec-Gar mags are the ONLY after market mags worth anything.

Hey Twisted check out these mags. They are sold by Cope's Distributing. They are made by ACT-MAG in Italy for Novak, the sight people. The one's I ordered are stamped with the Novak name. These are first rate heavy duty mags. They are much beefier than the Wilson's that came with my SW1911. They have a stepped steel follower, and the base plates are removable for spring/follower maintenance. They are 8 rnd mags available in blue or nickel finish. I have put ~600 rounds thru the two I have with 0 problems. I'm gonna order 4 more of them soon. I paid $18.99 each for them. I'm sold on them.

Out of all of the mags I have tried for 1911's I like the McCormick POWER series the best. Extremely positive. Wilsons are very good but I have had failures to lock with them from time to time and have seen others with the same issue...not a single issue with the powers.
