10 round mags?

I'm contemplating a CCO45 Lightweight soon, but will they use the Wilson, Tripp, or CMC 10 round mags ok (carry as a spare mag)? I swear I've used the 10-rounders in my Kimber Eclipse Officer in the past, but it's been a while since I shot that gun... Thanks!

Most 10 round mags - we're talking about .45 Auto 10 rounders and not 9mm 10 rounders, right? - are designed for full size grips.

Their spacer only goes up so far. You may need to either be careful inserting the mag to prevent over-insertion with a CCO/Officer size gun or find an additional spacer. I'm not a 10 round fan so I don't know if an extra length spacer is available.

Yes, .45 10-rounders. If I remember correctly, that seems right. There will be a gap between the frame and mag. Anybody know of a spacer that will work? Any reason, besides being careful not to damage the ejector/frame, to not do this? I see Wilson offers an 8-round Officer's mag too, but at that point maybe I'd just get a KCLW instead of CCO. I already have some Commander 1911s though...

Using 10 round mags or any extended magazines without a stop can cause a real problem. With the slide locked back it is very easy to over insert an extended magazine and you can damage the ejector as well as the normal jamb with a stuck magazine in your pistol.
