I tried to insert each of my 2 Wilson mags into my new EB SF and they were very difficult to get in. Is this normal? The EB mag slides in nice and easy but the amount of pressure needed for the Wilson mags is shocking. Maybe time for new Wilsons?
Naw. Just use your Ed Brown's, which are mde by Metalform and can be had much cheaper than Wilson's through a Brownell's dealer. Every gun has it's own brain. Your mag catch might be slightly out of spec but if it works, it works. I have a Tactical Elite that takes Wilson mags very tightly but it still runs... just have to slap then pretty good. You might try a new mag release from another 1911.
