Tripps are the best

Tripp Research mags are top notch. I used Shooting Star and Chips for a while back in the 90s. I also used 8 round Metalform for 40 1911 and 9 & 10 round in 9mm. If I load my ammo to spec they are reliable.

While Tripp mags are hands down the best 1911 mags made. Their 10 round mags suffer a serious flaw. The mag base is thin and weak, offering only a long thin tab of plastic from preventing over insertion. If doing serious speed reloads, this could be a big problem.
CMC 10 round mags, while not having a mag body and follower as good as the Tripp. The mag base is a robust full contact with the whole mag body chunk of plastic, no matter how hard or how many times you speed reload your gun. It will not over insert.
I have a few of both, I'm not really big on the 10 rounders and only use them for training. I never carry one, but if I needed one for hard use, it would be the CMC.

Just for my limited experience with my Kimber 1911. The Wilson Combats did not feed correctly, they were the 10 round in 10mm. There was an extra rounded top part of the mag that did not match the others. The 10th round was really hard to push in. OEM Kimber magazines did really well, but the Metalform magazines have done the best. Unfortunately the rest were all 8 rounders'...

Usually when the 10th round is hard to go in even after break in period it will not seat properly if the slide is in forward position. That applies to all mag fed guns.

I woud go with Checkmate Industries (https://www.checkmatemagazines.com). They are the OEM for Colt, Springfield, Kimber (tac mag), Sig, and Dan Wesson 1911's, and probably a few others. Every 1911 I've owned that came with CMI's has run without a hicup.

As an aside, according to a lot of the 1911 diehards over on the 1911 forum, CMI also makes the magazine tubes for Chip McCormick, & Tripp research. They just use their own proprietary followers.

I've always had good results with the Wilson Combats..
I have the standard 7/8 and 10 rounders..
No problems using them.

A few years ago when I bought my Kimber CDP, I was having issues. It would jam and rarely made it through the factory magazine without something happening. A buddy of mine loaned me a couple of the Kimber Tac Mags and it worked perfectly. So I emailed Kimber and explained the issue. They didn't even reply, but a couple days later I got a couple of their Tac Mags in the mail from them. I haven't had any issues since. Needless to say, I've stuck with the Tac Mags.
