    Anyone have any pics of a Wilson Combat low profile base pad magazine, inserted into a 1911 without a mag well? I’m trying to see how much these mags project below the bottom of the gun. I have a Colt Combat Elite, but it has a mag well on it. So Mec Gar mags with a base pad work great...

    Everyone talks about the "dimple" that sticks upward on the follower's face and that it's there to catch the rim of the last round such that it can be picked up and fed properly, etc. Well, I don't mean to go off on a rant here, but a "dimple' is a depression or divot and thus it is not the...

    What kind of magazines does the Caspian Double-Stack Frames use?
  6. General 1911 talk
    Well, I’m up to 350 rounds thru my new TCP- so I thought I’d do a little range report. For context, this is my first DW and my first 1911 that I paid more than $700 for. I really love it so far- big step up for me in fit and finish, and the trigger is fantastic. First flat trigger also. The...

    Received an e-mail from Ed Brown Products today. Offering free shipping on orders over $100. Awfully tempting to buy some more Ed Brown 8-round 45 acp mags. https://www.edbrown.com/product-category/1911/magazines/magazines-full-size/

    Hey, guys- anyone ever use any "extended mags" in their .45 1911? I've seen 10 round, 15 round, even 20 round..... Just curious. They look like they might be fun at the range, but I don't want to waste my money if they don't run.

    I'm new to 1911's, so looking for some advice to this specific situation and also some general learning. So I was shooting a friend's newer Nighthawk Falcon (45 ACP), and I had some problems with it feeding some of the ammo I had. My friend is more of a rifle/shotgun guy, so he doesn't have much...

    Got a new STI 1911 single stack 9mm. Shot it for the first time today and after the magazine was empty the slide wouldn’t lock back? Had the guy at the gun shop look at it. All seemed normal. He messed with the follower on the Mec-gar mag and it worked. Anyone else have to tweak a mag for it...

    OK, so pardon me if this question has gotten play previously... I always carry a full mag and a single reload. Specifically factory Colt SS mags with Shooting Star springs and +1 followers. I keep 4 in carry rotation, two for Weeks 1 and 3 of every month, and two for 2 and 4. The ones out of...

    I bought a Colt Commander (Wiley Clapp). 45 cal. NIB. about a month ago. Of course it came with only one magazine (colt) so I picked up an extra Wilson Combat Mag. Here’s the age old problem... it won’t lock back on the last shot. Bad mag? Weak spring? Colt just doesn’t like Wilson? It’s...
