Manufactured with 50% tighter tolerances than other military specification magazines, the Shooting Star Classic is perfect for people who need a magazine that will function in less than perfect conditions.

"I have a Kimber and a Springfield 1911 and these are the only magazines that I use. I was a police officer and reliability is very important. Great and good price."

"I just recently bought two and used it for military training with my Desert Warrior. The eight rounds capacity beats the standard seven rounds magazine I was issued with by one, but I know all too well the value of that last round in your weapon. I didn't even realize it until it was over and I saw that I had used roughly 18 boxes of ammunition--about 900 rounds there--and never once did I have a misfeed or jams that was related to the magazines. Proper cleaning of the weapon and the quality of the magazine meant that I didn't even have to touch my tool kit or see the on site gunsmith once the entire day. Excellent product--kinda sad when I saw that it was out-of-stock when I came online."

"I have been using these mags for years and they work great. I've bought 2 of these and 2 wilson combat and ended up selling the Wilsons due to feeding problems. I use nothing but Shooting star's!"

"I bought two Shooting Star mags, thought the price was great but that's the only thing great about them. I cycled them in my two 1911 clones. They won't drop free and they're hard to lock in place. I have no problems with these pistols using Colt factory,mil spec or Wilson mags even two Italian 8rd mags work well. I guess I should have listened to the Pistolsmith who built my guns, he won't use CMC mags. I'll use them for practice but I would'nt, Bet My Life On Them."

"I suppose I was spoiled by the Taurus factory mags, so there are a couple things I don't like about these. They fit tighter, meaning they are harder to set and drop free. Also, I don't like how far the base pad sticks out. Otherwise, they're great! They load fine and feed with no issues. I'm happy with them."

"I picked up a few of these mags to try out in my Kimber and they fit and work better than the wilson combat mags that I had. I've put better than 100rds down range out of each without a problem. I'm going to pick up afew more of these before long."

"BLUF: Locks the slide, ejects properly, feeds eight rounds flawlessly. Ideal for competition or any other situation where you expect to empty a mag and quickly cycle in another.Put this up against three 'cheap' mags (see my review here), and the stock one that came with my RIA. Cycled several stacks of snap caps, then went to the range. Fired one stack out of each mag; put the 'cheapest' back in my bag. Fired one more stack out of the CMC and the stock RIA mag, put the RIA mag back in my bag. Despite costing 3x the 'cheapest,' I'll only buy these from now on. No misfeeds, except one that was clearly the ammo's fault, always locks the slide, and always jumps out eagerly when ejected."
