"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…"

Great Quality, Would Buy Again.
Bought 2 Wilson Combat Magazines for my Kimber 1911 Stainless Steel ll. They work great - well over 500 rounds and no failures to feed or failures to fire.
Wilson Combat #47 Magazine
I used the supplied magazines that came with the Springfield Loaded Parkerized and with 50 rounds of Speer Gold Dots, I had 6 failures to feed and 3 double feeds. I used the WC #47, and for the remaining 250 rounds, I had zero failures to feed. I purchased 9 more #47s and feel 100% confident anyone of them will perform flawlessly. Great job WC.
Bullet proof!!
I purchased 3 of these mags almost a year apart, about 4 years ago. I keep all of them loaded all the time, and when I do cleaning & inspection, I can never tell which mag I bought first or last. The spring tension is the same between all three, there is no sign of wear or damage at the feed lips and they also resist dirt and scratches very well. Function is flawless. I have put several different types or brands of ammo through my gun without ONE feed jam, compared to the stamped steel junk I had used before. WC has made a great mag at a very fair price. Definitely a 5 star product!
Wilson 7 rd mags
Just flat work time after time in my Tisas. Great product built by craftsmen. Will stay with Wilson.

I promise you I threw away all my mags for my Sig 1911..I only use Wilson Combat now!
