    Does anyone have any experience with these mags? I was
    thinking of getting a couple for my colt gold cup. They look
    well made and are reasonable in price.

    IMHO, you may want to consider Wilson or Chip McCormic mags.
    In this age where truth is fleeting and mass manipulation is common, the ability to detect when something doesn't make sense is a valuable one.

    I'm with ZZ on this one. Can't do better than Wilsons...McCormick are usually good too...seen a bad one or two. Really get what you pay for in mags.

    I have had very good luck with Mec-Gar 1911 mags in 9mm and 38super.. Mec-Gar is the OEM for many handguns on the market today..You can't go wrong with a Mec-Gar magazine.

    Mec-Gar mags are OK.

    Metalform also makes an excellent mag.

    seen a lof of Mec-gar mags at ipsc matches, must be all right.

    Use 10rd McCormicks in my 1911, myself.

    I own a couple of MEC-GAR mags for a .45 EAA Witness I own. I didn't experience any problems with it feeding as far as I experienced. Buy one, see how you like it, that's what I suggest. But for a 1911 frame I'd buy a Chip or Wilson as the others have suggested.
