Here are Wilson's offerings in full size/Government/Commander magazines. Any of these will fit your gun.

https://shopwilsoncombat.com/45-ACP/departments/363/

A lot of folks like 10 rounders, but I consider them novelty items.

The 7 round 47 is my mag of choice.

If you must have an 8 rounder, the ETM family is the better option than the 47D family.

In the Wilson family of full size mags, the 7 round 47 and 8 round 47D have the same length mag tube. The 7 round mag has a great spring and follower. To get 8 rounds in that tube length, Wilson had to fiddle with the spring and follower to squeeze 8 rounds in a tube designed to hold 7.

Wilson introduced the ETM family of mags about a decade ago. They have a longer tube and are designed, from the ground up, to hold 8 rounds.

Seams like the ETM are a bit more money over the 47d but il get the ETM just to be safe .

As a long-time Wilson customer, I have at least some of most of their magazine offerings. At least 75 in total, including those that came with SGs.

In your shoes, I might consider ordering one of each (part #) that is compatible with your gun/needs.

Pay attention to baseplate options; possibly also finish options.

Then spend time on the range to figure out whether you have a pronounced favorite...for your specific gun.

Then and only then do you stock up with quantity.

Rather obviously, range use is forgiving; SD use is not. And some mags are better suited to concealment than others. So those considerations could also enter into your decision making.

Magazines can be similar to holsters...i.e., even with best intentions of getting it "right" the first time, most people have to try several before they find "the answer" for them and their specific gun.

Lastly, buy when they go on sale; not at full price.

I have been running Wilson's 47D mags in my SC commander for many years without any problems, last count I have 34 of them and no failures.
