Has anyone tried the new 930 magazines?

Specifically the 930-45fs8 magazines with the GI style follower.

Haven't tried one yet, but the description leads me to believe they will be good magazines; the steel follower and slightly longer body allows the stainless steel magazine spring to be used, and I have several magazines with them that have held up very well in pretty heavy usage. I wouldn't be afraid to buy some of them, especially with them being on sale for $27 plus change each right now.

How many times can they come out with the latest greatest magazine? What is the gain other than holes for round count?

I like my 47D's and ETM's. I'm not going to start another lineup.

I wonder if these came from the Chip lineup? The basepad slide on the outside of the body on this one like Chip and Tripp mags as opposed to the WC ones that slide on the inside of the body.

My brain can't comprehend how they can come out with any 45 ss magazine which can be even a tad better than the ETM-"HD+P"-FW/square-wire magazines.

I’m going to try some. Good price and I can’t imagine they’re bad.
They do resemble CM mags with the metal follower.

I had this very same thought when I reviewed the email advertisement I received.

I donít think that is even possible. The 930 seems to be a alternative for those that want a quality magazine at a lower price point and with a metal follower.

Donít think I will see a better magazine in my life time than the ETM HDís, the flatwire spring is a game changer.

I was assured in another thread that they do not.

Wonder if Chip was upgrading just before he sold up.

WCR replied:

Chip had nothing to do with this mag. This is an all new mag for those who want a GI style metal follower and extended tube.


I think it is like making laws or sausages, you really don't want to know what is going on in the parts business.

I'm with Jim and CA. I'm happy with my pre-existing Wilson mags, with close to zero interest in changing (ditching what I have) or creating a mixed assortment for no really clear reason.

But for "new" customers, I can see it being a plus. More choices.

Have to agree with this logic.

I just eliminated one entire lineup. Gave all of them to a friendly range officer. Told him do whatever you want with them.

Still have four manufacturers left in various calibers and frames. They all run great. The oldest are Browns and 47D's.

This is going to be a tough sell.

I picked up three and I'm very optimistic. I've never had problems with Wilson mags in Wilsons, Browns, and Nighthawks; but they don't always work in Les Baers.

On the other hand I literally have never had an issue with GI mags (even 50-70 year old ones I have leftover from the Army) in any 1911 of any kind. I think the GI follower was designed that way for a purpose and I'm glad Wilson now has it as an option.

My thoughts exactly. My 47D's and ETM's have ran flawless up until they need new springs.
