Re: 1911 Magazine Question
Hmm.. let's see. I have a Citadel 1911 and I love it. I've tweaked it, it looks great and I did post a pic of it in the 1911 topic. Provided I have enough ammo to range shoot with - I happily put 1½" groups from 50 ft. My 1911 came with 2 8 round mags. They look fine. I just bought an older Colt 7 round mag - fits fine but I did need to run 0000 steel wool over it with my preferred gun oil to have it slide in smooth (it IS an old mag circa WWII). It does work fine. Fired 3 full mags without a problem.
Now, these 10 round mags - well, I did bid on a few on the bay. Didn't win them for the $3 I was willing to pay to test them. That was around 6 months ago and, looking back I'm glad I didn't buy one. I can shoot 1½" groupings at 50 ft. with my lil ole 1911. Not much worse at 100ft. I'm guessing that with 3 mags I could certainly kill 15-20 targets in a necessary moving situation and with 5 mags that number goes up proportionately.
