Quick question - What mag bumper pads for Springfield 1911




All,

I've tried to search, but no luck so far. I'm about to place an order with Brownells, and want to add bumper pads to the factory mags - what ones fit the existing holes?

I'm thinking these might be right...

Metalform pads

Anyone know?

Thanks,
Bob S.

I used chip McCormick bumper pads on my Springfield mags.
Worked perfectly.

I used the Pachmayer rubber bumper pads on mine....
I did have to drill my own holes but the Pachmayer kit includes a metal die that shows exactly where to drill. Took less than 5 minutes to do.
They have worked great for me for years.

Those look great too - the standard Springer mags are made by Metalform so these should work w/o having to drill holes. I may try a couple of these too.

I've got an ultra compact, and wanted a 7th round capability in a mag so I bought a Kimber KimPro Tac-Mag to give a try. The hole pattern at the bottom of the mag is the same as my officers' sized SA mags (and the feedlips are exactly the same as well). If it matters, there is only a very discrete "Kimber" on the back end of the bottom of the pad if it matters to ya.

Well - we'll all know next week. I had to get the order in for some other things I need, so I ordered 4 of them - with the NRA Instructor discount they were only $3.30 each.

As soon as they are here - I'll let you know if it was a good deal or not.

Have a good weekend,
Bob S.

I used these Glend Arms pads on my factory mags and they worked great.

Well - the answer is...

They fit like they are made for them - I added them to the two factory mags that came with my RO, and the two spare McCormick "classic" mags I picked up. The holes lined up perfectly, and the install was a breeze.

Off to the range - Thanks to all.

Yes they work, but I use Ed Brown pads on my Springfield mags.

I picked up some that look like the Brownells' pads off eBay. 20 pads for under $15. No screws, but I had some already. They fit the SA mags perfectly.
