Wilson Combat® has been supplying serious shooters and professionals with the worlds' most reliable and durable .45 auto magazines for the past 30 years. They are used by the worlds' most Elite U.S. Army SPEC OPS unit, FBI SWAT, Thunder Ranch and professionals worldwide. NO other .45 magazine on the market can compare for proven inherent reliability, durability and the ability to remain fully loaded for long periods of time without damage. 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 .025" (the thickest in the industry) aircraft grade certified 17-7 PH stainless steel and heat treated for maximum durability and service life. Our dimensional tolerances are held so close that you will never encounter a Wilson magazine that doesn't drop free from your pistol or that your rounds are tight inside the tube as long as your pistol and ammo are close to proper specifications.
"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…"

|The Last Mag You Will Ever Need||10/4/2014|
|I have been carrying these Wilson Combat Magazines in black with my Kimber Pro CDP II. I have never experienced any issues with these magazines. They are smooth, reliable and best of all worth their price. I have taken my factory magazines and put them in the safe as I do not use them anymore. After carrying concealed for 8+ years I have never ran into an issue with these magazines. So why are you still sitting here reading this review? Go get one!!!|
|Greatest Mag Out There||12/20/2013|
|I have a Kimber and a Colt, I dont even use the stock mags they come with.|
|Ive replaced all my factory sig mags with these, and they have been flawless! The black is nice taking away he shine factor while carrying. I keep finding something new ever week to buy from these guys, because their stuff is reallythat good!|
|This is definitely the best 1911 magazine Ive used or handled. Sturdy design and high quality materials make this purchase worth every penny. The spring is quite stiff at first to the point where inserting a fully loaded mag took a lot of pressure. Well of course I checked it out before reading the enclosed product literature where it tells you to load the mag to full capacity and let it sit for a day. Now it slides right up and locks solidly into place. Ran 100 rounds of ball ammo through it without a problem! Thank you Wilson Combat!|
