Our magazine tubes have a lifetime satisfaction policy. Wilson Combat will replace any magazine tube that spreads, cracks or becomes unusable during normal use.

Polymer baseplates can break if you drop a loaded magazine on a hard surface. We recommend metal baseplates for hard use.

My go to Mag for my 1911 that I carry Daily. 9/18/2015
I have owned dozens of mags from several good brands and none of the springs have remained as tight and like new as this magazine has. I have shot about 2 to 3 mags worth of ammo on a weekly basis through my carry 1911 and after over 2 years i still have yet to have a magazine related issue happen. Unlike a few other mags of mine. These are the only magazines I carry, all the others are rang only mags now.

Best of the best! 1/15/2014
Without a doubt,the finest 1911 platform magazines available at any price.If youve ever experianced a hang up with that 8th round simply not feeding correctly due to uneven or weak spring issues,or a follower that tilts,these magazines are just what the doctor ordered.The build quality of these magazines is beyond comparison,simply the best of the best,just like all Wilson products.You absolutely get what you pay for and then some.
