I recently ordered two Ed Brown mags off of their website, as soon as they arrived yesterday I headed out to the desert for a 250 round test in each. When it was all said and done 500 rounds, NOT A SINGLE MALFUNCTION!!. I was VERY impressed, the gun I was shooting was a Springer Loaded parkerized. I had previously tried some Wilson Combat mags and had some FTF problems, I thought the WC mags would work like a champ from what I've read and heard about them, but nothing has performed like these, this is my first time trying Ed Brown mags and I'm now a believer. I plan on sending another 500 rounds through these mags next Monday to bring our total to 1,000 rounds, I'll have another update.

sounds good. What differences in design are there between the Brown's and the Wilsons.
I assume you're shooting 8rnd mags, with some sort of rubber or plastic base-plate. I prefer 7 rounders with no pad, for strictly cosmetic reasons.
But I like to know whats what. thanks for the info.

They're actually 7 round mags with the Ed Brown logo plastic bumper pads. Here's the link if you haven't already found them:

As far as the differences go between the Brown and the WC go, I'm not real sure, I know the follower on the Brown mags has a more rounded aggressive look to it compared to the Wilsons, and possibly a little bit stronger spring in the Brown from what I can tell. They've worked absolutely flawless for me in my gun so far, maybe you'll have the same luck.

cool, looks like the bumper pad isn't actually the base plate and just screws off. Might be just the sort of mags i'm looking for, and from a very well respected maker.

Yes, the bottom plastic bumper pad screws off easy, it's just two small philips head screws. I tried shooting it both ways (with pads and without) and I like them both the same, it's all about what looks better to you. Give em' a try, I think you'll be more than pleased ;)
