Wilson Combat® has been supplying serious shooters and professionals with the worlds' most reliable and durable .45 auto magazines for the past 30 years. They are used by the worlds' most Elite U.S. Army SPEC OPS unit, FBI SWAT, Thunder Ranch and professionals worldwide. NO other .45 magazine on the market can compare for proven inherent reliability, durability and the ability to remain fully loaded for long periods of time without damage. Our magazine springs are specially fabricated from the highest tensile strength heavy duty spring wire for long service life enhanced feeding and positive slide stop operations. Our magazine bodies are manufactured from .025" (the thickest in the industry) aircraft grade certified 17-7 PH stainless steel and heat treated for maximum durability and service life. Our dimensional tolerances are held so close that you will never encounter a Wilson magazine that doesn't drop free from your pistol or that your rounds are tight inside the tube as long as your pistol and ammo are close to proper specifications.

  • Metal spacer ensures proper feeding with factory .40 S&W ammo

  • No other magazine on the market can compare for proven inherent reliability, durability, and the ability to remain loaded for long periods of time without damage

Note:  To modify this magazine for use with .357 SIG 1911's, the magazine's inner rear spacer must be flush or slightly taller than the bottom of the U-shaped tube cut at the top of the tube. This will ensure that the bottleneck .357 rounds do not nose-down feed from rim drag on the spacer. To adjust the spacer, remove your baseplate and spring/follower assembly and tap the bottom of the inner spacer with a punch towards the u-cutout at the top of the magazine until it is flush.

Full Size Magazines / Grips

  • "Full size" denotes the traditional USGI 1911 frame size. Most 1911 pistols use full size magazines, such as Government length 5.0 inch and Commander length 4.25 inch 1911 pistols.
  • Full size grips have a measurement of 3.0625" of center-to-center between the grip screws.
  • These pistols will use full size magazines and full size grips.

Compact Magazines / Grips

  • "Compact" denotes a smaller frame, such as most Officer's length 4.0 inch 1911 pistols.
  • Compact grips have a measurement of 2.6875" from center to center between the grip screws.
  • These pistols will use compact magazines and compact grips.

Please note that many other 1911's exist that take neither full size nor compact magazines, but instead must use proprietary magazines from their manufacturer.  Some examples include the our Wilson Combat Sentinel models, the Springfield Armory EMP series pistols and the Kimber Micro series pistols.
