1. How on earth do you know what constitutes a quality 1911 magazine? The only two I have for my Springfield are the two that came with it. I’d like to get more, but I have no idea what to get. Anything I saw at the local gun show looked a little sketchy. With anything online, there are so many varieties that I don’t have a clue where to start. I’m not even 100% certain that all 7 round 1911 magazines I see would actually work in my gun.

    Things like this are what make me sway back into the “Glocks are better” mindset, because it’s not nearly as hard to figure out what extra parts will work with it.

  2. Now that I think of it, the fact that I converted my Glock 26 into a .40/.357, while being stumped with what should be a simple purchase for my 1911, does weigh heavily in favor of the Glocks.

    Granted, it mght be just as hard to figure out what works with a Glock if they had been around nearly 100 years as well.

  3. Wait ’til all Glock’s patents have expired, Gaston’s dead, union thugs have gone on a four year strike and all the Austrian workers are replaced with untrained scabs, the pistols themselves are being cloned everyplace from Italy to the Philippines and fifty-eleven people are making aftermarket magazines of varying quality. Then you’ll see some Glock Perfection.

    PS: 1911 mags? Wilson, Metalform, CMC. One or all of those three brands will work in your gun. When you find one that works in your gun, buy that one brand of magazine. Stick with one brand of magazine. Don’t go dicking around and buying different ones because they’re on sale or someone on the internets said they were teh new hotness.

  4. Yeah, I’ll pretty much echo Tam’s sentiments. I can personally vouch for Wilson Combat and Chip McCormick mags, and while I’ve not had any experience with Metalform, Tam’s word carries a lot of weight when it comes to 1911s.
