If we were talking about whatever flavor of the month glock clone everyone wants, I'd prefer to get 2-3 mags in the box, as spares often cost north of $30-40 and are only available from the manufacturer. But if we're talking about 1911s, I'm perfectly happy getting only one crappy low-end magazine in the case. I see it the most in Kimber 1911 reviews, but I'm sure other manufacturers also include only one mag. Many take it as an insult to their mother that they would pay $700+ for a pistol and only get one magazine, but I would prefer to pay as low of a price as possible for the gun, and then go buy my favorite magazines. Most of us have a preference of one of the big three 1911 mags: Tripp, CMC, or Wilson. Would it really make these reviewers happier to pay $20-$40 more for the gun just to get one or two more generic GI mags?
