    Wilson makes some but good luck finding them. Otherwise, Metalform and Tripp. A little secret I learned from the single stack .40 guys is to use Wilson 47Ds. They work perfectly in my CQB in .40.

    Will the 10mm magazines work? I have found a couple locally but it said 10mm...

    I have a 10mm/40S&W combo gun. It is not reliable with 10mm mags and 40 S&W ammo at the same time. If I reload the 40's and make them longer than normal - like 10mm long --the 10mags will work with the 40 ammo. In order to shoot factory 40's, I have to use the 40 sized mags.

    I am using Mec-Gar Mags purchased from CDNNinvestments.com for the 40S&W barrel, and Colt Delta Elite Mags for the 10mm barrel. The gun is a Delta Elite 1911 with standard non-ramped barrels, both of which are gunsmith fit match quality barrels.

    I have tried the Wilson 47D's and they did work most of the time but not 100% for my gun. Wilson used to sell them as a 10mm/45ACP mag.
