Wilson ETM magazines. High quality and 10 rounds. I use Wilsons and both of my 1911s.

There are two styles of Metalform. Which do you use? I have both, but the one with the front crimp seems to work margainally better with bullet shapes other than round nose. Both work fine with FMJ and round nose lead.

I use the below magazines, but with the rounded followers for aluminum framed 1911 9mm's and the standard flat follower for steel framed 1911 9mm's.

These are likely the best, but are also the most expensive. Tripps have been great in my Spartan 9. But as others have mentioned, the Metalforms should work well too.

Have to qualify the Tripp mags. My MS won't feed JHP out of em. In another thread they say to try Springfield spec mags. I have one on order to see if I can get it to do JHP ammo. The Tripp 10rds work fine at the range for FMJ.

Point taken. I should have specified that the Tripps have been great with 147gr TC Molys. I strictly use them for competition.

iv heard from many people 38 super magazines work jus fine.
some say you need a spacer in teh back(9mm is shorter)

checkmate comes stock with the ria guns. mine loads funny and is wont stack rds right, sometimes rds pop right out the top if there not 100% snug

spacers in the back don't seem to help, it still tends to nosedive.

springfield metalform's have a dimple in the front instead that act like a ramp.

Im not sure what their part number is.
Springfield list it as PI6090, and MidwayUSA list it under same part number

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/567...tainless-steel

Now, MidwayUSA list it $32 each.
If you know of someone who have bought new Springfield 1911 Loaded, and have no intention of using their Loaded Coupon, snatch it up. With Loaded Coupon, you can pick it up at $25each.

DOn't confuse it with Metalform's standard 9mm magazine(Part #582914. They seems to please Taurus PT1911 9mm croud tho ).
