    I don't see much discussion about EB mags , I purchased some 8rd 45 from Brownnells
    Are these good mags ? Send them back and purchase better mags ?

    I think they are quality mags, I haven’t had any problems, but I’m also using the 7 rounders, sure someone will give you feedback on the 8 rounders.

    I carry flush, and don't like any mags that squeeze eight rounds into the same size tube. I do love EB's 7-round stainless mags.

    I agree … I like the 7 rd mags as well...
    I think the Ed Brown " 8-Pack" mags were designed ground up to carry 8 rounds..
    I use Mainly Ed Brown ,Wilson, and Chip McCormick mags... I have had great luck with all three..
    Here is a pick of a Ed Brown " 8-pack" mag and a Wilson 7rd notice the difference in the body..

    Check out the Ed Brown website. They have a deal to exchange a crappy mag any brand and get an EB mag of your choice $10. Can't be beat if its still going. My friends and I did a bunch. Good mags. DO IT! Don't just sit there. DO IT!

    I've got some of the Ed Brown 8-round stainless mags. So far I've been very pleased with them.

    Ok, this thread is pretty old but I just checked on Ed Browns website and they are still offering the same deal. I have a brand new Colt Commander 45 cal. Which mag will work best in my gun? The 7 or the 8?

    The deal is for 7-round mags only I believe. Either will work in your pistol. Many 8-round mags have an extended baseplate for better function. I prefer a flush-fit mag for concealed carry.

    Buy with confidence, they are made by Checkmate for Ed Brown. I have both 8 and 7 round .45 ACP and never an issue. I have never had issues with Checkmate's mags in general.

    A year ago, I sent an assortment of 12 .45 and 9mm mags to Ed Brown via USPS. They were strapped together with packing tape and placed in a USPS box. The package made it to the last USPS point before Berryville. No USPS records beyond that point. Wait six month to get a refund check for $50 from USPS. Lesson learned, buy USPS insurance for full amount. I also don't care for having to write your credit card info on the Ed Brown order form. I had to cancel my credit card as that info was out there in USPS LaLa land somewhere. Obviously, I avoid USPS whenever possible. Our local USPS where I originally mailed from, showed me pictures of the package along the way.....they speculated it was more than likely theft related.
