They make flush-fit 8-rounders. Kimber Kim-Pro Tac-Mag. Simply don't screw in any of the base plates and it's flush-fitting. Worked well for me, no problems. Can't vouch for anyone else's gun, though. Not all 1911s are created equal. My response was sarcastic, by the way. I was sure you already were aware of such radical improvements in .45 acp pistols.
