Chip McCormick design?
I wonder how these compare to the 47D and ETM mags.
They mention a steel follower in these new mags. Are there any know issues with the polymer followers in the 47D or ETM?
I think I'm just lucky when it comes to mags -- I have the ones that came with my Les Baers, a bunch of relatively new as well as older Shooting Stars (old one's have new springs), a half dozen Wilson 47s, a couple of Wilson 47ds, a couple of Metalforms (that came with my Colt SCG), a couple of Ed Browns that I got on the trade in program, and one 70s era Colt 7 rounder with a new spring. When I go the to range I load them all up and then just shoot the next one in the pile in whichever gun I have in my hand -- the only problem I've had is my LW commander will not feed the first hollowpoint from a fully "stuffed" Metalform. Not really a big deal, as I carry it with the 47s.
Since Wilson bought Chip McCormick I’m not surprised that there is a new offering. I’ll be sticking with my ETM’s in both 45 and 9 and I have never heard of an issue with the polymer followers in the 45’s but the are inexpensive to replace if they appear worn or damaged.
that is what I was thinking
They need to do a hybrid: the McCormick RPM tube and follower with the Wilson HD flat wire spring.
For now, I would recommend the flat spring ETM's. Not the Vickers model, the slightly less expensive iteration.
They look like Mecgar mags and baseplates to me lol....
I do like the Railed Power Mags that Chip McCormick made up before the sale to Wilson, never an issue with them. But most of my mags are Tripp Cobra Mags and Wilson ETMs.
