For any flush-fitting magazine, I strongly recommend 7-round capacity. Yes, people have made it possible to fit 8 rounds in that mag body, but in many shooters experience, the 7-round versions will be more reliable more of the time. You mentioned this was for carry, vice range or competition use. For carry: stick to 7 round mags when selecting flush fit models.

Thanks. On the chip mags, which ones, 7 or 8 rd, shooting star or match grade?
I use the 8's. When I carry with them I have one in the chamber and 7 in the mag. I do have a few of the 7 round and I completely understand the theory behind them and if I personally wanted to remove every possibility of error that I may, I'd go with the 7's. Still, I can't really count any failures in the 8 round mag's, so I personally believe that it comes down to what makes you comfortable.

I would rather go down a round in a CMC mag than trust another brand. They have been that reliable for me and I am very impressed.
