I have one

Great gun, have no feed problems. Some will say the grip is too big for smaller hands which I have but I have no problem with it.

My SA Hi-Cap Loaded



I have no problems with feeding. Getting thirteen rounds into one magazine can be a bit of a challenge. I usually only load twelve rounds in the magazines that came with the pistol. One is a Mec-gar's the other I believe came from Springfield. I also have one ten rounder that came from SA it loads fine. Seems like a PITA to get a full mag out of the hi-cap mags I own though. I am looking for a couple more magazines.

I have owned a Springfield V-10 ultra compact hi cap for about 10 years. I admit the round count is most likely between 1500-2000 rounds but I can say that I haven't had any malfunctions at all with mine. I was going to sell it since I shoot it the least of any of my other pistols but every time I take it out I can't bring myself to parting with it..

I have the same semi-loaded model as pictured in CryingWolf's reply. Mine feeds RN ammo without fail, but it doesn't do as well with SWC's.

I have all Mecgar or Para mags and they work fine with 13 rounds. I had no luck with the ProMags (the mag in CryingWolfs pic with the plastic baseplate loks to be a ProMag).

The world of 1911's is such a seductive thing. So many wonderful option for shooting pleasure. The hi cap is a great pistol. I have a couple and both are great shooters. They can get a little on the heavy side with 13 rounds of 45acp in the mag.

the hi cap has NO grip mod options, as with the mil spec in single stack - much eaiser to put your MARK of personal modifications. Mag well, grip pannels - etc.

I am sure you will love whichever one you decide on!:rock:

Yeah, when I bought the pistol it had three mags, one Mecgar and the other two are not marked. One is a ten rounder the other a 13 rounder. All the mags work great in the pistol other then I can only seem to get 12 rounds in the 13 rounders. I am looking for more magazines soon. My buddy has a Para and we have already tested that his mags work in mine and vise versa.

I can attest to both, heavy and no grip options, although I have carried mine and you may find grips that fit Para Ordnance P-14 can be made to fit with some modification. Trigger and mag release is designed for a hi-cap, but all the rest of the pistol is a normal government size 1911. I may be looking soon to change the main spring housing on this hi-cap to rid my self of the ILS and add some texturing. I may also change the sights to Novaks soon.

This one was my first 1911 a real shooter, but I am already looking for a non hi-cap government size, although I will never get rid of my hi-cap.

Springfield did make a champion length wide body back in 2004 I think! I have seen them on Gunbroker - from time to time. RARE but they are out there.

Let me revise! It was the ultra compact hi cap. Sorry by the way there is on on gunbroker right now =- Parkerized.

@LoneRanger; Standard feed ramp here too. I really only say the only differences between the HI-CAP and a standard government size is the Mag Release, Trigger (trigger bow), grips and frame of course. All other parts are the same.

@Rasper - Check out this Ultra-Compact Hi-Cap
