    I have been looking at a brand new stainless 4 inch Kimber Pro Carry. I am new to the 1911 platform and need some advice / suggestions. I know that the mag that comes with the Kimber, 7 round one is a junky mag to use. What should I buy if I pull the trigger on the sale. The local gun shop owner swears buy the upgraded, Kim Pro Tac Mags, 8 round full size stainless steel mags. They are $25 each. He thinks those would be the best for the gun. I am looking to buy probably 4 mags, that way I can go through the breakin period faster. Should I just take his advice and stick with Kimber products, ie. KIM PRO or are there better choices for my particular future gun ?

    I have a Kimber Pro Carry SLE. I use Wilson 47D's. Never had a problem with them. The work great. Like Quack says, they might not work for you. Try one and see how it work. Just buy quality mags!

    I assume you're going to carry concealed. If so, flush fitting mags are much nicer. I've got a couple of the Kimpro mags that are doing just fine. My favorites are McCormick's Match Grade. Twin sister to their famous PowerMags, but have a flush welded baseplate.

    Had zero problems with my factory Kimber mag that came with my PC2. Also used a Wilson ETM.

    My stainless factory 7-round mags have worked fine for me.

    I use the kim-pro Tac mags as well. 8 rounds/flush fitting they work great in my kimber.

    The gun dealer will tell you that whatever mags he has in stock are the best. I didn't like that supplied mag that came with my Ultra Carry; I use Wilsons with the low profile steel base pad and CMC shooting stars.

    Wilson 47 d's in my pro carry II. Never one hiccup. Runs great, and I have tried a bunch of mags. ;)


    Good shooting

    For my 4" Kimber Compact, I CCW Wilsons with the flat steel baseplates, and use Kimber Tac Pro and Tripps at the range. My limited use with the MF mag has worked, too. ACT (e.g. Novak) mags don't like LSCW much.

    I had all the same mags above, and also had CMC Power Mags for my 5". Those CMCs were nice. Use a skirted follower with aluminum frames.

    My Eclipse Pro II has been flawless with Kimber Tac Pro mags, CMC power mags and shooting stars for that matter.

    I use the Tac Pros for carry, the CMC's for range and IDPA.

    I had the same question just a couple of weeks ago. I bought 2 Wilson 8 rd mags Monday...they work and load a lot better then the Kimber mag.
