I have a Colt if that matters.
Thanks, in advance.
Tripp Research Cobra Mags...
End of thread....
Overall, for any 1911 in the universe, I would say Metalform or Checkmate USGI feedlips with the flat follower with the dimple.
Any serious builder of 1911s would agree with that.
You want the best? There's only one: Tripp Research.
Apparently Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Nighthawk, Guncrafter disagreed. Perhaps they're not serious 1911 builders...
I've always used the 8 and 10 rounders from Wilson Combat and never had any mag problems with my 1911's.
I use Mec Gar in my Colt Combat Elite. Cheap and awesome. You could pay more, but why?
I am very happy with 8-round Wilson Combat mags for my 1911. McCormick Shooting Star mags are also, IMO, very reliable.
I have over forty WC magazines. All are problem free.
Because the OP asked for the best 1911 mags and not the best value.
You must not have a lot of Wilson Combat mags in non-.45ACP calibers in order to make that statement.
I really like the Wilson Combat mags. What ever you decide on, Don't go cheap. good mags are a must.
Checkmate with hybrid feed lips to work with hollow points. They make Colt mags too.
I also run tripps.
And the tripp super 7 rebuild kits are the best thing for old Mags.
I have about 20 old Novak eight rounders that I converted with tripp super sevens and they're reliable as all get out.
Wilson's just do not impress me
ALL are in 45 ACP. 1911's in other calibers do not interest me.
Whoever makes them for Colt. I've never had any issue with stock mags.
I've also had good success with Wilson Combat. Slick and smooth finish, no feeding issues.
Checkmate magazines or GI Surplus mags (CMP had them some time ago)
I've had great luck with Kimber mags..
then you should qualify that your experience with trouble free Wilson Combat mags are only relegated to .45 caliber.
I probably own close to 30 Wilson Combat mags in .45, 10mm, 9mm and .38 Super.
outside of the .45, I’ve found Wilson Combat mags performance in the other calibers to be less than stellar.
I don't know who TF you think you are, but save your instructions on how to post for someone who's interested.
