I don't carry my 1911. But that said, Tripp Research are the only magazines it will fire hollow points out of. No model of Wilson Combat mags have ever worked in my pistol for anything but ball ammo. Tripps work with everything. I'll never buy another Wilson magazine again.

Could it be the gun and not the mag? We use Ranger-T and I have not had a problem w/ any of my Wilsons, Baer, or Nighthawk in feeding them. In fact, Wilson sells their own brand of ammo which I use in my CQB Compact, and the ammo has a big HP nose.

Same here. Simple, reliable, I trust them.

My Wilsons are hit and miss depending on the firearm. I don't like the plastic follower either. I have a bunch of 47D and ETMs that are for Range Only use. For carrying I use CMC.

You'll see a lot of that on various 1911 forums.

Do you have any non-1911 semi-autos?

If you do, do any of those guns have a plastic follower in their magazines? Is it all of them?

I dislike the follower not because it is plastic, but because the Wilson mags donít always lock back the slide after the last round. The follower does not engage the slide stop on all of my 1911s. Sorry if my post lacked specificity.

I used Metalform 7-rd. magazines with the rounded metal follower for well over a decade. They just worked reliably with any type of ammo I used.

I put this is another thread; but there are a bunch of good magazines out there. The wilson/vicker’s duty mag with a steel baseplate is the king.

re: Tripp mags

I originally reported having problems w/ these mags because they had a tendency to lock the slide back w/ certain guns. That problem has now disappeared, so the mags must have wanted to be used and broken-in.

I will continue to test them w/ various 1911s, and if they continue to function well, they will get added to the Duty Mag lineup.

Thanks for the follow-up.

I haven't used Tripp mags, but your earlier reports were different from the norm. I was surprised to hear you were having problems with them. I'm glad they seem to be working out for you now.

Anyone know what magazines the Texas Rangers use for those with 1911s? I know a lot of the 1911s are Wilson’s. I’m just curious if there are a lot of Wilson magazines and which ones.

Wilson 47D's.

I swap the springs out every couple years whether they need it or not.
