When I purchase my Springfield Mil-Spec I order the extra mags. A month later I called to see if I could order more. After talking to a fellow for a couple of mins asking some question and telling him how I liked the 1911, he told me he would give the discount again if I would tell anyone.  So you did not here it from me that if you buy a new gun there is a chance you may be able to buy extra discounted mags ;D

I am not sure I want go with the ones that are cheaper than the dirt we stand on as they have mixed reviews and do not engage the slide stop on some pistols. 

Has anyone used the sportsmans guide mil-spec magazines?  Are they really GI or even a truly mil-spec import.

I got parkerized M-14 mags made in taiwan back in the assault weapon ban days that functioned flawlessly in many a high power match.

Kinda like motorcycle racing days.
Remember the ad that stated so to speak, if you have a ten dollar head, then buy a ten dollar helmet...........

Pretty much applies to magazines also...........

They may work, but then again, they may not..............

Doesn't mean all the more expensive ones are any better either, just to let ya all know.

The bottom line is, if in doubt, buy "ONE OR TWO" TEST them before jumping in and buying a bunch until you know.

Magazines and ammo usually will be found to be the culprit with a high percentage of issues with a 1911.

Take it for what you will.............

Gosh darn it Wild Bodie Tom!!! :D

        If them guys buyin the "less expensive" magazines shoot in my class (modern) I was hoping they would buy them really "inexpensive $4.98 magazines....you know the ones that are sold as Colt factory magazines because they say Colt on the floorplate......

        But NOOOOOOO, here you come with your sage advice and now I have absolutely no competitive advantage...none....zip....zero....nada.  Thanks pard.

I have had pretty good luck with 'New' GI mags or even old GI mags if the feed lips were not sprung or worn out.

Thats why I was wondering if the mags really were 'GI'

I agree that most cheap import crap is just that.

Will probably wait for another gun show in town a pick up some more in sealed wrappers with the NSN.  Only need a couple more so even kimbers retail wont break the bank, just want to stay GI if possible.

Cheaping out on mags is the biggest mistake you can make. I do not care how good your gun is, it will not run on junk mags.
As Bodie said which ones will work best may vary with your gun. But go with quality mags or be prepared to have many malfunstions to clear.

Just go to a local match, stick out your hand and say, "I'm new and would like to learn about Cowboy Action Shooting".  You'll get plenty of help.

Have fun!!

          The website you probably want is:

http://www.sassnet.com/

          SASS is the parent organization of Wild Bunch Action Shooting, Cowboy Action Shooting, and Mounted Shooting.  Click on that link and take a look.  Lots of information there ref. cowboy shooting.  Of course you are always welcome here.

         As to getting started without alot of expense, if you need to buy the firearms necessary to play the game there really isn't a cheap way to do it.  You need 2 single action revolvers, a lever action rifle chambered in a pistol caliber, and a double barrel, lever action or pump action winchester model 1897.  Then of course you need holsters a gun belt and some method to carry shotgun shells.  If you can afford the equipment you will find that it is FUN, and the people involved are FREINDLY.

good luck, you are always welcome here!

I bought mags from Joe's 1911 Mag Mania on the Internet. I use a 1911 Remington R1 and the mags i purchased from Joe's are shown as 1911 7 round Hybrid Stainless Steel Mags. His website shows 5 Mags @ $55.00.  I have used them and they are good mags they list at $12.00 each, but if you buy 5 you get a $5.00 less break.  He ships them fast USP.  Here is a link to his website for those interested:

I said "other" because you din't have a spot for "UNKNOWN"!   ;D   I bought my mags over 20 years ago... and can't remember the brand name.  They weren't cheap, stainless and have worked great ever since.  Bought 2, then went back for 8 more...

They've worked in 3 1911s, hoping they'll work in the "new-to-me" I'm buying for WB!
No, I ain't ready, but let's do it anyway!
