If seven rounds won't fit, they're 6-rounders.

Get Rid of Colt Mags

Those with metal followers..the orange Colt things...will put a ding/gouge in the aluminum ramp. Look at the lower lip on yours and if the orange has worn off on the tip, its been hitting the ramp and you'll see a tiny ding there. Go with something with plastic followers like Wilson, Les Baer, or Metalform. I use the latter.

The Colt mags are fine for Officers models that are all steel, so you can sell them easily.
