I did some research and found out the magazines are outsourced by Colt and not made by their employees, so I have had to buy a Wilson mag so the gun can fire at full capacity...
Overall, I am glad I have the gun... It shoots really well, feels good in the hand, and carries well at my side... I decided that I might only own one 1911 in my life, and if I did it would be the original... however, i would not buy another Colt if I was fortunate enough to get another 1911...
Look at the Metalform brand magazines as well. They sell stainless 8-round .45 ones on MidwayUSA and if I remember correctly they cost $19.99, and they have em with the low-profile bumper pad and a regular bumper pad. Or you can get the blued ones w/o the bumper pad for $17.99.
I use em in my Springfield and have had nothing but success. Fully supported follower in em too.
Wilson's I think are ~$35.
