Fellow Addicts- send them any old 1911 magazine and 10 bucks and get one of their new ones.

I rounded up aftermarket stuff that was just lying around. I sent them 20 mags
and my credit card number for 212 bucks(the offer is good for 20 mags total and 12 for shipping)
They charged my card on Monday and i received the mags within 4 days.

Thank you Ed Brown Cust Service!!

Yes. Been looking at that deal. Wondering why there are only 9rd 38 super mags available and no 10rd mags.

They don't believe in 10 round 9mm and 38 super per their rep. They claim testing has shown 9 round functions better.

And thank you OP but this is the 5th or 6th *must read* thread on this program

Anybody who shoot's 9mm 1911's in IDPA can't run their mags without incurring a penalty. I'll have to pass.

Edited: I am incorrect. You can run them, but at a disadvantage.

It has been pointed out that I am incorrect in my statement that one would incur a penalty for running Ed Brown 9mm mags in IDPA. It is in fact correct. Nevertheless, I don't want any 9mm mags that don't have 10 rd capacity.

I guess we’ll have to see how these perform.
I never buy a new product when it first comes on the market.
I don’t care to be a builder’s guinney pig, and surely not for Brown.

I reckon that’s pretty cool...assuming Ed Brown mags work in your gun.

Personally, I’d keep the old mags and invest in Tripp super 7 kits

Why would Ebbie want your old mags?
I wonder what might become of them.

Maybe any defective mags will be sent to their respective manufacturers for warranty replacement, then sent back to EB to be used by their employees.

So I had my 8 new Ed Brown 8rd mags show up today. I tested them out in 5 of my 1911s & I am not happy (3 colts & 2 dan wessons). The tube diameter of the magazine is wide. I pulled out the calipers & compared the mags to my Wilsons & CMCs. The Ed Browns are fatter. Really tight to get them into the frame (need to force them in). They will not fall free when ejected (or even move for that matter). You have to physically pull them out. I wonder how a return will be handled given I traded them my old magazines?

Looks like a Checkmate follower (I've had good luck with those).

Out of spec bodies would suck.
