Magazines

I need new ones for my AR-15 and my Springfield GI 1911. I was thinking Chip McCormicks for the 1911, but for the AR I have no idea. I have a mix of metal and plastic mags, both work equally well. I was thinking of going plastic magazines for the AR and retiring the surplus metal ones. Any thoughts will be welcomed on brands and prices.

That's easy Rick, Pmag

I use the PMAG Level (has a Window so you can see fill level), and I like Ranger Plates on mine for easy pulling, and softer landing when I drop them. I've got about a dozen of them I beat the snot out of and have not had one fail yet. Though I do have each one numbered so if I do have a problem I can ID it later.

Even cheaper would be the aluminum mags that are Teflon coated with the Magpull follower. You can buy them by the dozen usually at Cheaper Than Dirt or AIM Surplus, but I'm happy with the MagPul mags overall.

For your 1911. I picked up a few Checkmate 8Rd and a 10Rd, stainless magazines with the hybrid feed lips. They seem to feed ball and hollow point equally well, although I have yet to have a feed error in my TRP.

I still use my issued GI mags I got from the Army. They've followed from the jungles of South America to the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. Work fine. I do wish we had a window though.

I use Chip McCormick shooting star mags for my 1911 and they've performed flawlessly so far. Have had zero malfunctions with the 1911. I do only have about a thousand or so rounds through it though.

AR, I use Pmags for competition. I also use G.I. mags with anti-tilt teflon and stainless follower. Ranger floor plates on bottoms.

1911, I like Wilson 47D 8 round mags.

Sweet. Thanks for this tip. Free shipping too. I'd rather be shooting than spend my afternoon driving to Cabelas.

Blah, Blah, Blah

Like everyone else I use Pmags. I don't own a 1911 but alot of people suggest Wilson combat mags.

Pmag here as well. for 1911, wilson is the shit, but expensive. I picked up used checkmate 8 rnds and after repeated landing on the concrete floor, one of them starts to loosen up at the baseplate, but all 5 I have still feed flawlessly

Pmags have been 100% reliable for me. Some non elastic mag pouches will not take 2 pmags where they will take 2 gi mags, so watch for that.

hamlund tactical does the windowed for $139.99/10 shipped mix & match
