1911 Mags

Recommended Posts

so due to the current political climate, i decided to finally go out and buy me a 1911. I decided on the Rock Island Armory 1911 tactical due to price ($530) and the great reviews i've found for it. So now i need magazines. there seems to be a large amount of 1911 magazine manufacturers so i was just wondering what brands have you guys found to be of good quality?? are all magazines interchangeable?

Wilson mags are the best you might consider a magazine lip forming tool from Brownell's


in a semi pistol most problems are from feeding or ejection get an extra ejector even new they may need to be


"tuned" brass ejected needs to drop in the same area not fly willie nillie everywhere.


7 extra mags ought to do it.


I do not know how familiar you are with the colt or it's clones but there are gunsmithing books that can help


if or any problems occur.


might consider reloading and having a bullet mold in 200 grain TC and 230 grain ball powders like Unique and Blue dot


are great if you load shot shells blue dot works on both well...


shot out calibers based off the 30-06 cartridge can e cut and reamed to make 45 ACP.


wish you luck and have a good time with it, it's the most fun you can have with your clothes on, well I have shot mine butt naked


in the old driveway but it was still fun.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
