  • Best 1911 magazine in 9 mm


    what is the best 1911 10 shot magazine in 9 mm?

    Are 10 shot mags in 9mm reliable? I was told by a experienced gun dealer that they are not reliable.

    Where can I buy some and approx.cost.

    I use Wilson Combat and Chip McCormick 9mm 10rnd mags.

    But been told by some older guys that Mec-Gar 10rnd mags are better with not as much spring tension.

    Approximate cost, last I bought some mags was $60.00 ea from LGS..

    I now purchase all my mags from Brownells and prices vary depending on the $AU > $US

      Tripp Cobra mags are the best.

      Metal Form detachable base plate, mags are almost identical

        The Metalform Mags work more reliably for me than the Wilson Combats, and they are cheaper. Boxtrade was selling them a while ago for under $50

          I use chip Mccormick ones and have never had a jam or misfeed after the 200rd run in period. I got mine from brownells. You can order 3 per order to get it under their 100 dollar export limit.

            Remind you need a B907 or whatever it is for mags?

            Hi guys, I still use the factory sti magazines and they work well. I will be buying some cmc mags on the recommendations of other club members though.

              Newbie question here - do all 9mm mags designed for full size 1911s fit all makes?

              I'm about to buy a few mags for my Springfield Loaded and not sure which way to go. I can get them from the states through a mate.

              Any suggestions about brand and model greatly appreciated.

                He lied, or he's not as experienced as you (& he) think?

                Boxtrade, Boxtrade, Boxtrade, Boxtrade. Did I mention Boxtrade?

                I originally used Wilson combat 10 round 9mm magazines in my STI Trojan. the mags ran flawlessly in the 12 months i used them. I have since switched to Dawson Precision 10 round 1911 magazines and i love them. They work a lot better with the mag well on my gun and run great. Picked them up for $40 each imported from the states. The Wilsons were around $60 each from a LGS here in Aus.

                  Doc's right the Wilson are very good no hang ups, try Boxtrade Peter Dawson 0411 029 179, Chip McCormick very good as well
