Wilson ETM's. And if you feel like spending the money for the heavy duty flat wire springs, I'd do that. If not, I'd get the regular ones and upgrade the springs to flat wires when it's time.

If you really need a second choice, I would go with Tripp Cobra Mags but only for 45acp. If it were for 9mm I would go with Wilson. Period.

But with any 1911, I always suggest buying a single mag first and making sure it runs with both your target ammo and your hollow points. If all goes well, buy as many as you need. Some 1911's can be finicky.

Also note that a while back Wilson Combat bought Chip McCormick. So I gotta believe CMC mags are pretty good but I don't have any direct experience with them.
