Wilson Combat ETM Tactical Magazine, 1911 Government, .45 ACP, 8 Rounds

The Wilson Combat Elite Tactical Magazine

Wilson Combat, with a firmly established reputation for outstanding quality, the highest reliability, and superb service both before and after the sale has built hundreds of thousands of 1911 single stack magazines. We get a lot of feedback about magazines, and magazine performance, and we listen. Our magazines have undergone 3 design and or material changes, each carefully evaluated and proven before they were released to the market. The result of our latest effort is a completely redesigned magazine with the features we've heard you ask for.

The ETM started with a blank sheet of paper and 30+ years of 1911 and 1911 magazine experience. The ETM is no re design of a 7 round magazine which has been reconfigured for 8 round capacity; it's a totally NEW product designed from the ground up as a premium 8 round tactical magazine. It WILL set a new standard in 1911 magazines while redefining state of the art. We've blended the latest improvements in manufacturing and materials technology with our own real world shooting experience to provide quality, quality, and more quality. From material selection to manufacturing process to final testing, this magazine is built like your life, and ours, depended on it, as someday it may. No compromises, just stone cold reliability you can depend on. The ETM is primarily a combat magazine, but if you're a competition shooter, you just may gain that critical advantage that will move you past the competition.

The real world for a combat pistol isn't always in a dry, protected environment. So we built the ETM to be impervious to the elements. Every component is manufactured from either a high grade stainless steel or super tough nylon. We worried about grime and corrosion when we designed the ETM, so you will never have to.

The ETM has the strongest magazine tube yet developed, virtually eliminating feed lip cracking, tube spread and cracking, and general fatigue, some of the most common manufacturing and/or age related defects in other magazines. The engineers working on the ETM have a combined 110+ years of firearms experience the ETM is a showcase of their knowledge. They refined the radius for each bend in the tube to take advantage of the strength in the stainless steel they selected, and then devised a manufacturing process to provide the tight tolerances required to make those exact radius bends. The observation slots, moved to the rear of the tube, are located exactly where they need to be to maintain the structural integrity of the tube for years and years of use. After extensive testing we selected a grade and thickness of stainless steel optimized to provide superior stiffness without brittleness. No matter how many times you empty this magazine through your pistol, you can be assured the engineering expertise, design, material selection, manufacturing, and the quality control behind the ETM promises a lifetime of smooth and reliable operation.

ETM tubes are manufactured with a proprietary, custom designed welding process followed by a proprietary multi step tumbling and finishing process. The internal and external finish, critical to smooth follower operation and insertion into the weapon, are the result of selecting the proper media and media sequence in the tumbling and finishing process. We expended a lot of engineering time and expertise in developing the finishing process; when you get your hands on an ETM you'll be able to see and feel for yourself, we think you will agree it was time well spent.

The improvements made to the ETM's follower and base pad have not previously been seen in a pistol magazine. This design combines advanced manufacturing technology with absolutely precise dimension control, assuring positive slide lock after the last round has been fired. The innovative follower design with its extended skirt ensures stability in operation and minimizes creep from the tube when the magazine is empty. Super tough nylon was selected as the optimum material for the new ETM follower due to its proven durability and slick surface finish. This slick finish and the super smooth internal finish of the magazine tube result in the smoothest follower operation possible. Experienced shooters will notice this ultra smooth performance when loading and firing.

We've found a space age stainless steel spring wire that is phenomenal for spring life. Have you ever worried about leaving your fully loaded magazines for long periods of time? This spring, designed exclusively for our new ETM, will do its job longer than the cartridges will remain suitable for combat use. Another factor in spring life is the degree of compression when the magazine is loaded. Our engineers designed the ETM's base pad to allow a longer tube. Although the ETM is not appreciably longer than a typical 7 round magazine, it has more space for the spring to work without complete compression or excessive stress on the spring.

The ETM seats and locks in the weapon with the slide down, fully loaded with 8 rounds, as easily and surely as a typical 7 round magazine and much easier than any other 8 round magazine on the market.

The ETM's new almost indestructible base pad provides a sure grip when pulling a magazine from a pistol or a tight pouch, especially in a combat or competitive situation when seconds count in reloading. If you have ever been in the rain, trying to get a traditional magazine from a wet, tight pouch, you'll really appreciate this feature, and it might save your life.

The ETM has numbers 1 through 10 included on the bottom surface of the base pad to make it easy to mark and identify your individual magazines to track usage and performance.

The ETM has observation ports clearly labeled for rounds 2 through 8, on both sides of the magazine. It's easy to see at a glance how many rounds are remaining. The ports are moved to the rear third of the tube to maintain the tube's strength in the sides and prevent the tube from spreading over time.

Developing a cutting edge product always has one downside; your competition WILL copy some of its unique features. We delivered our first magazine over 27 years ago, and others have copied our designs ever since. But no one, anywhere, has ever copied what is arguably our best feature; the feature that has a huge benefit for you. You can't see it in a photograph and it doesn't improve the function of the magazine. We call it the Wilson Combat Lifetime Satisfaction Policy. You get one with every Wilson Combat Product you buy, and it should be a major factor in your decision to purchase. Since 1977, Wilson Combat has been standing behind our products and services unequivocally. If your Wilson Combat magazine doesn't perform as it's designed to, return it to Wilson and Wilson Combat fix it or replace it, with no expense to you just like Wilson have been doing since 1977. We've worked hard to build the finest track record for customer satisfaction and service of any firearms company in the world. We're proud of our satisfy every customer history, and we will continue to do whatever it takes to be sure that your purchase from us works as it should work, and works that way from now on. The ETM is so good, you'll probably never find a reason to test our satisfaction policy, but rest assured, if you do, we will be here as we have been since 1977 to take care of you. Buy an ETM today, and depend on it for a lifetime of service.

Try the new ETM, and discover for yourself why 1911 experts around the world won't use anything but Wilson Combat magazines.

Reviewer: Brandon
I have several different wilson magazine and you can tell that this one had more research and development behind it. Truly worth the couple extra dollars over the 47d. Function is flawless, very well made. Beyond a shadow of a doubt the best 1911 magazine I own...and I own other brands that claim they are the best.

Reviewer: Back247D
Why Wilson felt they had to reinvent the wheel is a mystery to me. The tried and true 47D magazine blows the ETM mags away in both durability and quality of manufacturing. The feed lips on the ETM mags do not hold up to competition level usage. The spread open and cause the mags to mis feed and no longer drop free when released. Of course, when they go bad, Wilson will replace them but you have to ship on your dime and the new ones will do the same thing. Stay away from these mags!

4.0 Rating Great mag - 9/22/2008
Reviewer: Nando
I would agree with the previous feedback. However, for the price and extra ammo I would definately go with the Chip McCormick 10 round Power Mag. As far as Wilson Combat, definately the best Wilson mag out there!
