    I recently ordered an Alchemy Prime and was wondering which magazines are supplied and what you guys are running in your Primes . I’m probably gonna order a few more Tripp cobra 7 rounders and maybe some Wilson 47 7 rounders.

    Try Mec-Gar mags from Greg Cote LLC. I use them exclusively in my 1911s, CZ's and Sigs. Never have any mag problems either in 45 or 9mm.

    I use the Mec-Gar's in my DW's, both 45 and 9mm and in my Wilson 45 and have never had a mag problem. And Greg Cote LLC has good prices and great service.

    I can't speak to Mecgar mags but I will say that after trying stuff from Chip, Wilson, and Tripp, the only magazine I'll ever buy now is the 7 round Wilson 47. It's mostly because I'm lazy and I know the things just plain work.

    I want to say ACW come with Metalforms but I would need to check. The mags are still sitting in the bag as I have plenty of Tripps and others shared between range guns.

    They are ACT mags, I run Tripps or Wilson for carry. I don't have a mag that won't run in my Prime or Brimstone, Rob makes that good of gun.

    Metalform are the best low cost answer
    Then Wilson, Chip and Tripp's in what ever order you like!
