    The title pretty much states my question.

    Are there any issues with Chip McCormick Power Mags working in Ed Brown guns? I am thinking about ordering an Ed Brown 1911 and if I do so I will need to acquire the essential accessories during the build time.

    I have not had any trouble with Power Mags in any 1911. Occasionally, you will get a 1911 that prefers one type of mag over another. Generally, Wilsons, Power Mags, and Cobra Mags have all worked well for me.

    CMC Powermags are a solid high quality magazine, but it isn't like 2+2=4, the answer I'd give is probably. I would buy one or two and try them out though before buying 10 or 20.
