ETM Heavy Duty/+P rated .45 ACP magazines with Wilson Combat exclusive stainless flatwire MAX magazine spring and our time-tested stainless steel ETM tube.
Guaranteed to never need replacement, the ETM with MAX spring will change the 1911 magazine forever. Our testing has shown these to be the most reliable 8 round, .45 ACP 1911 magazines in the world.
The heat-treated MAX flatwire construction never gets stressed or over-compressed like a conventional spring and is guaranteed tonever require replacement even after high round counts or daily, extreme duty use.
The ETM Heavy Duty/+P retains all the features of the standard ETM magazines:
NOTE: Magazines equipped with the MAX spring will feel stiff for the first few times they are loaded and will initially require more pressure to seat in the gun. For best results load and unload your magazines a few times prior to your first range session and keep them fully loaded for a few days prior to first use if possible. This will allow your MAX spring to take a set at the optimum rating for a lifetime of service use.
Disassembly / Maintenance Instructions
Our magazine tubes have a lifetime satisfaction policy. Wilson Combat will replace any magazine tube that spreads, cracks or becomes unusable during normal use. Wilson Combat magazine springs and followers are considered consumable items and may require replacing after extensive use. Polymer baseplates can break if you drop a loaded magazine on a hard surface. We recommend metal baseplates for hard use.

|I can run hollow points now on my 1911||9/10/2021|
|My GI spec 1911 would jam on everything except ball ammo. I read on on some 1911 forms WC would solve my problems. I’m very happy I took the gamble excellent product!|

|Best 1911 magazine if you have a magwell!||7/19/2016|
|Feels solid and well made, and for me is worth the money..it could be the best except that I just felt it was too long for use in a 1911 without a magwell, it is sticking out by around 1/4..i know that it needs to be that long because it was designed to be a dedicated 8 round mag, and to accomodate the faltwire springs, but it made my 1911 looked unfinished with the portion of the magazine sticking out even if It has a low profile steel basepad...|

|HD Flat Spring Mags 45 acp||9/23/2014|
|I bought about 15 of these mags and have shot a lot of +P 45acp rounds through them. They function perfectly. Now Wilson needs to put the flat springs in the 10 round mags. The flat spring mags are a must if you shoot +p loads and a must for total reliability. Brilliant idea Wilson.|
