I've just slapped some money down on a colt 1911 9mm (series 80 I think?) It comes with 2 mags but I'd like to buy a couple more for Action Match comps. Any mags worth getting/avoiding?

G'day Kelsey Cooter,
Apart from the factory ones that came with the pistol, I use the US made Check Mate magazine. Of the 6 i bought they have all worked faultlessly through hundreds upon hundreds of rounds, Mecgar make good mags as well as Triple K both brands can be found at Gold Coast Shooters but I don't know who carries Check Mate these days, Cheers.

I bought a few 10 round mags from Wilson combat in 45acp from Cleavers. They should have 9x19mm versions.

Cheers guys Mecgar seems to be a name that always comes up when people talk about reliable mags, I see the brownell mags seem to have a good name on the net also.

You blokes used Mecgar?

Mecgar make OEM mags for a heap of manufacturers and are good quality.

Tripp, Chip McCormick, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Colt. Take your pick, they should all run fine.
