Being a "born again" 1911 fan, I am struggling with the usual "gremlins" of the pistol. One suspected problem has been, of course, magazines. In my investigation I have noticed that in my Springfield, McCormick and Colt magazines have a slower bullet release and have the bullet feed into the ramp at a lower angle than do either Wislon or Mecgar mags. I have read Kuhnhausens(sp?) descriptions of "timing" a magazine to match bullet/pistol configuration but it seems a mite too much trouble to get into. The Wilson mags are seeming to hold up a little better to the abuse on the training ranges than the Mecgars. I may just have to cough up the extra dough and go with the Wilson.
