Seven actually, there’s one in the ’43. The Brown Truck of Happiness made a delivery, and my magazine stand is full-er.
I’ve heard some negative stuff about Kimber 1911 quality control lately, but I kinda really-really hope it doesn’t extend to the magazines.
These are hella stout – and if I get another 1911 later with a funnel for a magazine chute, I can always put the humongous base-pads on them.
These are the Kim-Pro TacMags – 7-rounder like His Excellency JMB indicated and designed-for, and which fit the old ’43 best.
Fully loaded 8-round mags, even the ChipMcCormick, are hard(er) to seat and drag noticeably on the slide – at least I noticed it, so I’m just living with it as-is.
How many magazines are enough?
So far I have these seven and a few more, including an original WWII Scoville and a Risdon – both of which operate and function perfectly, btw. Not sure what I’m gonna do with the Chip McCormic 8-rounder, maybe give it to a friend with a modern gun that can handle it…
