Thanks in advance!

Never heard of em. 1911s can be very finicky with magazines. I'd say stick with the Wilsons or at least CM.

Chip McCormick's aren't too expensive, and run flawlessly. Spend a little bit more now to prevent you from having to spend more later.

I recommend the stainless ones, as they have a better natural lubricity which can help feeding.

How about ProMac? I saw a deal, 5 for $100.

Get the McCormicks. I've had no good luck with ProMags. Wilsons and McCormicks WORK. Mecgar makes a good 1911 mag, too.

McCormick's cheaper mags are what, 15 bucks or so? I've never tried his Power mags, they weren't available yet when I was still using my single-stacker for IPSC. I was using CMC mags exclusively for that, and my mag-related problems were non-existent.

In general ProMag sucks. There may be a few exceptions, but usually it's well worth it to spend a few extra bucks to get something decent.
