Re: 1911 Magazine Question
My Springer came with two 7-round magazines and I hated them because they did not have a supported follower and that can cause reliability problems.
Metalform is what the Springfield Custom Shop uses on it's FBI Professional model and from what I've heard they function well.
Just about every 1911 guy I know uses Wilson Combat mags.
I have two stainless 8-round Kimber mags with flat base pads and the supported follower. I really don't like the big bumper on the bottom of the mags.
Chip McCormicks are good too.
I notice when I load all 8 rounds into my mags, they don't want to seat in the gun all the time, so I usually just load 7 in the gun and go with that. I mean in a SD situation, I'm probably not going to shoot off 7 or 8 rounds. 7 works for me. Could just be the mags I'm using too. Springs might just be stiff still.
Samuel Adams once said, "among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life, secondly to liberty, thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can."
