I haven't, though typically springs are designed to match up with a particular follower. I suspect you could probably use a Wilson spring and follower, but a Wilson spring may not match to a Tripp follower. I haven't tried it, so it still may work.

No. Don't see any reason to either. Tripp springs have been out-performing Wilsons ever since Tripp has been in business.

I just put Tripp springs and followers in both of my mags and they work perfect. I am going to buy dirt cheap mags from now on and rebuild with Tripp springs and followers.

The flatwire mag spring is. At least in our testing. Its actually really square wire, not flat like Glock recoil spring.

Anyone tried the Wilson flat wire magazine spring in a Tripp 8rd .45 mag?

I tried but the flatwire spring would not work well with the Tripp follower...not a good seat. Also, on the other end the Tripp metal plate was too narrow to capture the spring.

So, I used the flatwires I bought to retrofit some 47s and kept the Tripps stock.
