They are used by the worlds' most Elite U.S. Army SPEC OPS unit, FBI SWAT, Thunder Ranch and professionals worldwide.

Our magazine springs are specially fabricated from the highest tensile strength heavy duty spring wire for long service life enhanced feeding and positive slide stop operations. Our magazine bodies are manufactured from .027" (the thickest in the industry) aircraft grade certified 17-7 PH stainless steel and heat treated for maximum durability and service life.

"Back in 1980, Bill Wilson asked me to test some of his new Wilson-Rogers .45 magazines. He explained that he felt they had solved the problem of cracked feed lips and that their new magazines fed much more reliably than any others on the market. Well, it's 30 years later now and I'm still using some of those original 6 prototype magazines that Bill sent me… Through the years they have proven without a doubt to be the most reliable and durable 1911 magazines on the market. I have personally used specimens from various production runs through the years and have yet to see any quality variation or have one let me down in any way. They are my first and only choice as well as the choice of the elite special forces units I train. I trust my life to a Wilson Combat® pistol and 8-round Wilson magazines; so can you…"
I am by no means an expert, but I have had my share of “custom” 1911’s, and yes in some cases they can be a bit picky. But I can say with 100% of the guns I tried them on, Wilson Combat magazines created a noticeable difference. No matter what I tried including the 47-0X, 47-OXC, 47-OXCB, 47A they all improved performance. So what else can I say, they made my guns more reliable. Does anything else matter?

I bought a few of these to replace the Checkmate magazines supplied with my Dan Wesson CCO, and they are fantastic! I dont ever see myself using anything other than Wilson Combat magazines for my 1911s.
Pros: Peace of mind regarding magazine reliability, low maintenance, can be taken apart for servicing
Cons: There is no such thing as a bad thing about a Wilson Combat magazine.
Perfect for my Colt Defender

I have to say no other 1911 mag beats Wilson Combat.

These mags give flawless performance no matter what I feed them - factory ball, all manner of hollowpoints, my flat- and round-nose reloads, you name it. They jump right out when I hit the release and go in nice and easy.

Bought this magazine because my Kimber Ultra Carry II was experiencing some feeding problems with the stock Kimber mags. Its run flawlessly while using these mags after a couple hundred rounds.
Simply the Best!

The best thing you can do for your 1911

I bought 2 of these for my Kimber Ultra Carry and the quality is amazing.I wish Kimber would just include 2 of these with every purchase and charge me the difference.No matter what you shoot these are the best mags you will get for the money period.

I bought one to replace my stock Kimber magazine. The quality is amazing. It could fix your failure to feed problems. It has a plastic follower which will not scratch the inside of your pistol up. Its extremely easy to clean. I recommend this to all 1911 owners. Mine came with a Wilson Combat sticker which I proudly rock on the side of my 50 cal ammo box.
The best magazines available.

I looked at every magazine available for my Kimber UC. No others came close to the quality of Wison Combat magazines. I originally only bought three, but after one trip to the range I decided to buy seven more.
