I only shoot WB at the club level and NONE of my local clubs have any issue with the small base pads on the Wilson mags.

I have the Kimbers with multiple base plates.  I can use the padded baseplates for modern matches.

Majority are McCormick's with a couple of Colt and Springfields thrown in the mix.

McCormick and Wislon so far.  Anything with the rounded followewrs seem to work the best for me.

I use military surplus magazines.  They've never let me down if I keep them clean.  They're also cheap.

GI magazines are reliable but mine are WWII or VN vintage and are not always reliable on locking the slide.  That is why I went with the Tripps and Tripp internals in CMCs.  Only one failure in 5 matches and the magazine was dirty after 5 stages of being dropped in the sand.   I now bring the magazine brush to the match.
I kin nail him!

Howdy,

I bought 5 Chip McCormick Shooting Star magazines with the plastic base pads. Do these base pads come off with the metal base underneath or do I need replace these magazines for Wild Bunch.

Thanks pards,

Like, CypressSam, I use military surplus magazines and have had no problems with them.  I find them at gunshows and they are new in the package.  They seem to work well in my Springfield 1911.
