New WB shooter with a magazine question
« on: August 19, 2014, 10:06:55 PM »
Hey guys. I've shot my first WB match a few weeks ago and have since started working up basic equipment to keep enjoying this aspect of SASS.

So, my question is this: I have two colt mags that are great. no base pad at all. I also have two mags with slim base pads. one is an Armscore and one is a Wilson Combat. Their base pad allows any extra rounds, or gives and real advantage that I can figure, but the rule say no base pads AT ALL are allowed.

So, do I need to figure out how to switch these base pads out with steel bases, or are these slim type pads considered legal?

Thanks guys

Howdy,
On pg. 5 of the WB Handbook it states

"Magazines must be standard length and cannot hold more than eight rounds.
No extended base pads on magazines. This means NO base pads of any kind".

I personally would just go out and purchase new magazines and not touch two good magazines that work good in your pistol.

Just bite the bullet and buy half a dozen really good magazines without base pads.

I only use Colt 7 round magazines. They work the best. Worked good enough to win Winter Range.

Tripp, Colt, Chip McCormick, Mec-Gar, et al.

If you go to the Wild Bunch Wire and do a search for "equpiment poll" you will find a thread devoted to magazines.

Thanks guys. I'm building up my magazine cache. Will leave the base padded mags at home once I have enough without them.
