Ed Brown magazines
« on: December 05, 2018, 11:20:11 AM »
Howdy all, first off this ain’t no commercial. I use Tripp’s magazines for my competition pistols and I use Wilson’s for my carry. Very happy with them in respective rolls. Grouchy spike sent me an email showing ed Brown mags  and the promo going on. So I ordered some for door prizes at the Texas state match and ordered one to keep. Took it out and ran it thru the gun 10-15 times. Ran perfect ejected perfect. No tuning or messing with it. So for the deal, send in a crappy mag and 10.00 and they will ship you a new ed Brown mag. Gathered up 7 of these and sent off for 9mm 1911 mags. They came in 85.00 for 7 mags with shipping. Loaded them all up with 9 rounds and went to slinging lead. No jams,no failures to drop......I’m impressed!

I have a similar experience with these magazines in Ruger 9mm and Colt 38 Super.  I sent all of my worn 45 Auto mags for exchange, complete with followers and springs as they request.

Not a wiggle of a problem so far in hundreds of rounds in range duty.  Haven't tried 45 Auto.

The base plates do not meet the specs for Wild Bunch, but for use in practice and self-defense cartridges, I'm well satisfied.

I didn't know about the exchange, but I recently purchased several Ed Brown 7 round magazines through Brownell's at a very reasonable price. So far I've been very satisfied with them.

These mags are made by Check Mate. Who also makes magazines for Colt to their specs. They are good magazines.

BD, Is is your experience that Magazines with the parallel wadcutter feed lips offer more resistance to spreading of the feed lips compared to GI or Hybrid feel lips?

I like the parallel or hybrid just because I don’t flip live rounds as bad. I can’t say that one is better than the other for spreading. I’ve had all styles spread and have some of each that are any number of years old.
