My new stainless Colt Series 70 only came with 1 mag.:grumble:
Where can I get some more stainless Checkmate 7 rd. mags with the Colt horse on the floorplate?:scratch:

Brownell's is the best place to find factory Colt magazines, I have found. They are pricy though, about $37 apiece for the stainless ones.

I just checked Brownells and they are $24.98 each for the 7 rd. SS ones.Still a little pricey but not as bad as $37 each.:eek:
Thanks mbinky

Call Checkmate out on Long Island and speak with John. He will get some to you. Also, there is a way to order them for a cheaper price. Just check out one of the other 1911 forums and you will see the link for purchasing Checkmate mags.

visit www.cdnninvestments.com

Get their phone number and call them. There are no 7 rounders listed in their catalog, but they can't catalog everything in their warehouse.

Their colt 8 round SS mags are $16.00, don't know don't know if they are Metalforms or Checkmate. If Colt puts their name and a picture of their pony on the baseplate, it probable does not made any difference, both are made to their specs.

Give them a call, its an 800 number and the folks there are eager to help.

I bought mine at my local gun shop. They were about $30.00 for the stainless 7 rounders. A few dollars more than the Brownell price but I didn't mind supporting my local guy.

Those mags CDNN is selling are probably knock-off Colt mags. Probably not made by either Metalform or Checkmate. Just a hunch.

the checkmate mags on the other site don't have the horse on them. also they are a "hybrid" which means they are new and improved---time will tell.

I got 10 of them and for the most part all work fine. (7 rounders)

If that 70 Series is a Repro it SHOULD have come with TWO mags.
I know but I was there the day it showed up at my dealer's from the distributor and it only had one.:scratch:
