While some of the standard length 8 rounders work fine, if I wanted 8 rounders these days, I'd choose one with a longer tube length. Some examples would be the Wilson ETM, McCormick RPM, Tripp, or CheckMate Extended tube mags.

In general, I like CheckMate's mags, but their non-extended tube 8 rounders are the only mags, out of my eclectic collection of 1911 mags that I wouldn't buy again.
