    Get some 47D Wilson mags. They always work. Most of mine have never seen their factory magazines.

    Here is a good real on 1911 magazines, it's about 10 years old, but still a good read: http://how-i-did-it.org/magazines/

    I use Checkmates, Kimber Pro's, and Wilsons at the range, and carry Tripp Cobra's.

    I have an old Ed Brown that I've had for 20 years of so, always ate everything I ever fed it. Until about two weeks ago, got a box of ball ammo the would jam on the first round, every magazine. I found the OAL was too long, and my recoil spring had been in service longer than it should have been. I shot the ammo in my PM45 to finish out the box, and replaced my recoil spring. Now no worries.
    Point being, might be bad ammo causing your issues.

    Darn, that's a good looking pistol. I have to agree that you "really messed, getting rid of it recently" Hopefully, another, in just as nice condition, will come your way.
    If it's any solace, the above makes me double determined to keep my Classic Custom Target.


    The new grips look good on your Springer

    FWIW, the magazines that work best in my 9mm 1911 are Metalform 9FR-794

    I have had great luck with Wilsons too. I think they have made it into the magwell of every 1911 Iíve owned, with a few Chip and one Tripp mag having also given good service. While I am yet to own a Wilsons gun, I can certainly speak to the quality of their mags. Thanks for the model #!

    Thanks for the link! I will defiinitely read the article. Yes, my first attempt at resolution will be to take her back for another range session with 2 or 3 kinds of ammo. Then switch mags (2 from the Colt and one Wisons I had hung onto). I figure it wonít hurt to run some more ammo too as the Springer was not very used when I got it. Need to break her in!

    Thanks for the kind words. Your target version is a beaut! I am becoming a big fan of the target rear sights. I know some donít care for them, but Iím not sure why. They sure do make me more accurate!
    Iím already hunting for another locally. I have seen one, but it has a bit too much ďhonestĒ wear for the price. That one I had was about 97-98% if you ask me. Plus, the local one for sale has that plum finish on the slide.
