I wish they'd get their site updated. They clearly made some iterative changes for the better, like the round butt.
Did you have their mag release installed? mine are the orange follower Gen 2.I wasn't so impressed with the S15 mags. Out of the first two I bought, one would drop free in my G48, the other would not. Inconsistent quality. And they seem to keep updating them, now on Gen 3 I believe.
I may be a little late to answer your form question? But I recently purchased A/F 1911 S15 with about 600 rds through it now. So if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask...Anyone have experience with one? I'm sure I don't need one, the biggest appeal is it shares the same mags a my wifes carry, and the fact that I'm a hopeless addict! One popped up on the local forum and I have never really paid attention to them before.

I didn't realize that the S15 mags were $42 each. That's a bit steep, especially considering that Shield Arms keeps having design issues.The Shield mags are quality units. They make a 15rd. and you can get 5rd. extensions.

I bought a 3 pack with the release at Christmas for $99 for my ol' ladies G48. At the time I had no idea they were on there 3rd generation of design with a new manufacture and a fourth gen in the works. I'm still interested in the AF S15 but should really shoot one first, guns that didn't work out aren't as easy to sell as they were a year ago!!I didn't realize that the S15 mags were $42 each.

Wasn't aware that PSA will be making 43X mags. I'll wait to see if those are a viable option for the AFS15.Interested... considering s15 mags are regular g19 mags with the plastic stripped off...
Also Palmetto state is releasing 43x mags in 15 rd flavor. 800-900 price point I'd be all over it
I have one all ready & its a "sweet" gun. You will not be disappointed.I've an AF1911-S15 on the way to me (w/ threaded barrel), as well as 3 Shield Arms mags.
Unfortunately these have a polymer mag catch notch to be compatible with Glocks polymer catch, so won't be a viable option in the AF. BTW, the new S15 Gen3 mags aren't working well with mine, lots of feeding failures. I still need to take a deep dive into why.Wasn't aware that PSA will be making 43X mags. I'll wait to see if those are a viable option for the AFS15.
So, I ordered 3 x gen 3 S15 mags. Do I need to order their mag catch to use late gen mags with the AFS15? Not sure which mag generation the gun comes with.Did you have their mag release installed? mine are the orange follower Gen 2.
No. I'm sure they are still coming with gen 2'sSo, I ordered 3 x gen 3 S15 mags. Do I need to order their mag catch to use late gen mags with the AFS15? Not sure which mag generation the gun comes with.
I'm seeing the following at Shield Arms: Gen 2 and 3 magazines were designed to work with Shield Arms steel mag catches.No. I'm sure they are still coming with gen 2's
Absolutely you can use your current mag catch. They are just referring to using them with Shield arms steel catches made for GlocksI'm seeing the following at Shield Arms: Gen 2 and 3 magazines were designed to work with Shield Arms steel mag catches.
Just to be clear, if I order gen 3 mags, I should be able to use them in the AFS15 without also ordering the Shield Arms mag catches, right? I'm thinking I'm all good, but that's an 80% all good. I guess I'll find out in a few days!
