    They're almost the same gun and Kimber doesn't have to pay $350 for those grips...

    only if you are a high volume shooter, or the gun doesn't have a ramped barrel.

    They aren't as durable if you're going to shoot ten of thousands of rounds.

    then you will have no problems, just throw away the kimber mags and get mags that do not have metal followers

    I use KimPro mags in my SA Compact LW, I have not had any problem with the follower contacting the frame. Mags have been flawless as well.

    +1 for Kimpro mags. I feel they are over looked magazines that have great anti-tilt followers, strong springs and well made bodies with replaceable bumper pads. I used nothing but those mags when I had my Ultra Carry II for CC.

  13. I have a mix of mags w/ metal and plastic followers, and the only one that doesn't work to lock the slide back is a Colt.

    I have a S&W 1911SC Billboard model, and I am not going to risk follower to frame contact, but that's just me.In my DW CBOB I would not be afraid of this, but I only use Wilson mags for my 1911's
     
  15. that's one of the silliest reason, but hey, it's your pistol.
