    I am looking to pick up an extra mag or two for my Firestorm .45. However I have gotten mixed answers on the compatibility of Colt mags in the Firestorm. I was under the impression that they work but was told today that the mag catch was at a different location on the Colt mag than on the Firestorm. If this is true can anyone tell me where to get more mags for this gun?

    Are these mags specifically for the Firestorm or are they actual Colt 1911 style mags?

    I myself own a Firestorm. I asked the salesperson how much the Firestorm mags would run me. He told me they'd cost a pretty penny from the manufacturer(if I recall correctly he said they run like $30 each). So I went ahead and got two 8 round Chip McCormick "Shooting Star" mags. Each one only runs you half the price of an original Firestorm mag(around $15 each) and they fit fine. Plus you get an extra round in the Chip mags and a nice extended floor plate. Hope this helps!

    I havent found any 1911 mags that will not fit the firestorm 45 yet. The mag release is in the same spot on my firestorm compact 45.
