    Bought a DW valor off a board member here. The gun is awesome. Only gripe was I THOUGHT the factory DW mags were 8 rounds and every time I loaded 8 rounds in the mags they would jam the gun (fte, stovepipes). After this occurred with my new gun for a few mags, i decided to just load 7 rounds in the mags and had NO more problems.

    Are the DW Valor factory mags really 7 round capacity? I have to admit, the 8th round was verrrry difficult to push in the mag, making me think they were 7 rounders.

    Now I have doubts about 8 round capacity mags in general. Would I be dissapointed if I bought 8 round wilson combat 47d's?

    Leave them loaded with eight rounds for a couple weeks.

    For what it's worth - I really like Wilson 47D mags for my Dan Wessons.
