    CDNN markets MetalForm 1911 mags as being the same as Colt factory mags. They also claim MetalForm makes factory mags for Kimber, S/A, etc.

    The prices are great. Are they quality mags?

    What say you?

    The metalforms I deal in, and use in our guns work great.. good quality in a no frills basic mag.

    Metalform does indeed make mags for many makers...hey, they make mags.

    They are used exclusively in the guns built here. They work very well, especially when properly tuned. Once in a great while you will get one that is a little tight in the gun, even if the frame has been dressed properly...but if you send it back they will send you a new one so no big deal.

    I really like doing business with CDNN. I know that I have purchased at least 50 Metalform Mags over the last several months 30ish in 45acp, 20ish in 38super. Actually the last thing I did around midnight last night was to to order 10 more, 7rd s/s removable baseplate $9.99. They all come in a ziplock bag with Metalform's information. So far not one problem in my guns, they runout nice.

    Had a conversation with a Colt Rep a number of years back, on the actual Colt mag the base plate will have the Colt logo (Pony) with a M for Metalform or a C for Checkmate.

    Those are the Metalform magazines I use. They work well for me.

    May have to give those a shot for range use only. I rock Tripps for EDC and the range now.

    Just ordered three of them. Hoping they work out well. A lot cheaper than buying Wilsons, CMC and Tripps for the range.

    Thought I saw the SS 9mm Metalform mags on sale at CDNN for $12.99 not too long ago. Not spectacular, but worth keeping an eye out.

    Metalform mags are good to go, they supply mags for Springfield Armory.
    Also check into MecGar mags

    I dont know, maybe it's just me. You spend hundreds if not thousands on a gun, then on the most important part of the go bang system, the mag, you want to use go cheap. For me, and this is my experience, Wilson mags have eliminated any mag related issues I ever had with any gun, and now that I have enuff for all my guns, are the only I use.

    Bang, Bang!

    For carry, I agree. For dropping in the dirt while blowing through ammo at the range, I don't. Why use expensive mags, when I can get one for under $8 that serves the same purpose? Maybe that's just me. Besides, I need to practice malfunction drills somehow, and my Wilson mags don't allow for that. ;)

    I shoot at indoor ranges. No dirt.

    That doesn't apply to all of us though.

    I agree. Matter of fact, I just ordered some more Tripps today to use in my Custom Build when it gets here.

    That is my exact thought too. I buy really nice, reliable, proven mags for carry, but for plinking at the range, those cheap mags will work for just fine!
