"These mags do not feed well and jam in the pistol. Very poor."
– .45 mags
"These are NOT USGI Mil-Spec magazines. The hole locations are COMPLETELY wrong and the feed lips are wrong. Don't waste your money on these POS mags. Shame on CheaperThanDirt and Ammoman.com for trying to pawn these off as authentic USGI. They KNOW they're not."
"pretty bad. 3 of them the baseplate blew out when i charged the weapon. on the others they split down the front of the magazine. not very happy with them."
"I bought three of these mags and I wouldn't give them away.They don't feed. Oh they're just junk!!"
"I own 2 of these type mags and they are flawless on my RIA 1911 and Colt pistol, it's even better than what my gun had from the factory w/c was a Novak brand.It's all about luck I guess. I had 250 rnds of FMJ'S and 400 rnds of SWC on my RIA and it did work."
"These mags must be Military Contract rejects. The four I bought feed FMJ pretty well in my Springfield GI Champion. Two different brand JHPs would jam inside the mag. The holes punched in the side are offset so that you can only see the first six of seven total rounds. If all you do is plink then these are a great buy. If you do anything else, go take a look at the Chip McCormick selection."
"Excellent 7 rd mag for the price, you can never have enough 1911 mags and as far a s holes not matching, who cares, bullet will still travel forward. Dont get me wrong, i will not trust my life with them, but for a get-away-bag they will do, and even if the floor plate will blow out, I will just go and spend another 7$ to replace the mag. Thanks"
"I used these in my Taurus 1911 the feed fine and thats about it. When fired all seven rounds slide does not lock open. Mags have to be pulled out when realesed save your 10 bucks."

"For the people that have a 1911 and shoot JHP out of it YES IT JAMS it is only made to shoot FMJ out of it. it is a military weapon and this mag. works great on it i have got 4 of these mags and have had no problems with them."
"I have bought these and have had no problems shooting fmj out of my Kimber or Springfield armory 1911 pistol's"
"It is correct to say these mags are Military \"style\" not Military Spec. They are thin bodied and light for their size. They are poorly blued with many obvious spot welds and manufacturing marks. The base doesnt even come close to looking military. They are very \"fake\" looking Military wannabees. They are a lame matte blue at the top, then the botton third is a lame glossy blue. I was hoping for something of substance, and maybe even a nice finish, possibly even similar to (dare I say?) parkerizing, but this aint it. These are something like youd find at a gun shows cheap generic unknown makers magazine table for 5 bucks. I was hoping to enhance the apperance of my 1911A1 but like I said, this aint it. I just got them and Im judging them by their apperance and quality, if they function and shoot as bad as they look, they will end up in the junk box... what a bummer! Could of been, should have been... not even close."
"For the money they are OK, yeah you have to apply some TLC. I had to polish the sides on all three of the mags I bought, exactly as I had to when I shot for the Navy, go figure. A little judiciuos tweeking on the followers and the slide would lock back as advertised. For the money Yeah, OK!"
"These are perfect for the range and for SHTF situations where it's better to have something than nothing at all. As for conceal carry mag, I'd drop the extra cash for quality mags where your life may depend on it. These mags lock the slide when empty, and the followers tend to stick. If you take a rotary tool and buff the insides where the follower may be sticking. These mags work perfectly. But to the people complaining over quality of this piece, it's a mass produced cheap magazine, go Kimber if you want the quality ones."
"These mags are really good for nothing. I tried them out in both my Para and Springfield Armory 1911. They don't even fit in the wells! I thought I was getting a great deal, but I really got what I paid for."
"These are fine mags for the range but as someone else said, I would use them for conceal carry. In my RIA tactical some of em hold the slide, some don't. I adjusted one a little an it now holds the slide. good buy for the range."

"It works great in my Mil-Spec Springfield Armory 1911... Only have used FMJ and works flawlesly it's the only one I use when I go shooting just to make sure it consistently works. And it does!"
"I bought 3 of these for my Firestorm. Using Winchester, WWII surplus and some cheap Russian ammo, all 3 handled them all without issue and loaded easily into the gun. I shot about 400 rounds total expecting at least one failure but I didn't experience any."
"After reading the other reviews I was expecting these things to disintegrate as soon as they hit the ground. Pleasantly surprised to find that they fit and functioned perfectly in my S&W 1911. Not what I would use operationally but fine for target shooting."
"Lots of negative reviews on this item, but the two I received were fine with my SW1911. The fit and finish were okay, nothing outstanding, but what can you expect for this cheap? It fed fine. Not bad for some cheap mags."
"Like many others I read a lot of negative reviews. I bought two of these to try on the range and two much more expensive mags just to have. I cleaned off both of these, like many others suggested, and they have worked great on the range. I had absolutely no problems in my Kimber. In fact, the two expensive supposedly \"nice\" mags I bought ended up not fitting and holding the slide back in my Kimber and in my Springfield operator. So, as many before have said, they may not be the prettiest things in the world but they work."
"You can't beat the price, they aren't Kimber quality but they work!"

"Ok, these will not operate the slide lock on my RIA GI 1911, but rather than that, they do function flawlessly. I bought two and was hoping that with some tweaking, they would work well. To my surprise they worked fine right out of the package. I only give them a 4 because of the inability to engage the slide lock."
"Tested two out the other day. Took out my Sig GSR 1911 and they work fine no FTF or FTE. Have been reading the review and think I figured them out. They do not like internal extractors. I just ordered 5 more."
"I'm giving these a five they function flawless in my Springfield Armory 1911 and engaged the slide lock."
"These mags work great in my Springfield G.I. 45. The rounds feed and cycle nicely, also they engage the slide stop when the mag is empty (like they are supposed to do). My only complaint is that when the loading rounds in the mag, it was a pretty tight fit. Other than that great buy for the buck!!"
"Functions reliably in my Springfield 1911 but doesn't drop free. The metal is relatively thin. For the price it's good to buy a bunch and keep them loaded rather than use them regularly."
"I ordered 3 of these mags a few weeks ago. I tried just full (7) and stored over nite full. At the range tried 7+1. The 3 mags gave me no problems at all. They went into mag well and dropped just as well as factory mags. Cycled with out any issues what so ever. Did not try factory ammo. 220 gr. SWC that I cast and sized myself. At the price I may just have to get a few more. Used in my Taurus PT1911."
"I was looking for two new mags for a used 1911 I bought. It was Gi Series and to my amazement I came across this item. It with worth every penny. I love this site. Thank a Million. You wont go wrong with this 1911 Magazine. Old School at its finest!"
"I was a little leary about these mags at first but I bought them anyway b/c of the price. Function and feed great.If you have a Colt buy these!!!"
"This mag worked great in my RIA compact. Four bullets because it does not fit flush. But still a great mag!"
"Bought 4 of these mags for my Taurus PT1911, fit fine, nice and flush. They worked good, didn't always hold the slide open when empty, a little hard to load the rounds in them but need to be used more to break in. Will buy more, great price, good deal. Some of these old reviews really trashed them but what they got now are good to go."
"Not military spec but for $5 bucks great deal. Bought 6 all work great. One of the mags came dented from being packed under my ammo. Called CTD they replaced it within 2-3 days great service."
"I actually purchased two of these mags with the sole purpose of using the mag bodies and replacing the spring and follower with 8 round conversion kits. To make a long story short, I ended keeping the mags \"as is\" and they worked flawlessly in my Mil-spec - using my hand loads too! I think I am going to snatch up a few more at that price when they are back in stock."
"Can't go wrong for the price. Feed very well into my 1911. Springs are strong and good quality. I purchased a spare Kimber mag two weeks ago and paid over $20 for one! I returned and will be ordering more of these!"
"I thought I would give a couple of these magazines a try. So far I have been pleasantly suppressed. I my Tarus PT1911 they work fine. They don't drop free as easily as the factory magazine's unless the mag release is held in, but other than that they are fine. I have not experienced any malfunctions and the slide stays open after the last round. I would buy more in the future."
"Magazines arrived in very good condition. I did have to fiddle with one of them since for some reason it wouldn't engage the slide lock when empty. Some fiddling with the feeder however fixed that problem. They are a little hard to get out at first but after using it for a little while they seem to work fine now."
"I bought 3 of these for my Rock Island 1911A1. Two work flawlessly even with HP's. One had FTF once in every load, usually the 5th round. This issue continued for about 15 loadings, but now it has started working properly. I give it 4 stars because they are an excellent value for spare/range mags, however, due to the problems with the one, I will not be trusting my family's life to them. My Chip Mccormick mags are the mags I use for HD."

"These are very tight in my RIA 1911 GI... Will fit only when magazine release is pressed."
"Fit great in my Remington 1911a1. Have not used them yet, but I hear the problem is if they cycle through. Better to see if these work before you go and buy an expensive one that may run you $25 or more."
"The price is right. But these are cheaply made compared to originals. My originals function better, lock up tighter. These hang on mag release, do not hold slide open, while originals function properly. But again, the price is low enough to tolerate some of this in my opinion."
"I bought several of these mags, knowing htey are not top quality. For the price, however, they seem to function well. The only problem I have is that the rounds don't feed reliably out of the magazine bag, so to speak. I had to use some needle-nose pliers to very slightly flare the ends of the mag lips to allow the ammo to feed better. I tried these at the range one day, fired about 300 rounds through them, and they do seem to function OK for range use now. I definitely wouldn't want to put my life on the line with these, but for the price, they're great for target practice work."
"Definitely inexpensive.Using these mags on 2 1911s:Kimber custom IIRIA tacticalThe mags locked into place just fine on both, however they had issues with the lips holding onto the rounds and causing FTF while round was being engaged by the extractor.Also, the follower was not engaging the slide stop correctly and holding the slide open when the magazine was empty. After comparing this to my other mags, it appears the section of the follower that engages the slide stop is a hair too short and just barely clips the slide stop.Same issues on both pistols (one well broken in, other only has about 100 rounds in it)."
"For no more than they cost, they are very good"
"This is the standard issue mag for the 1911A1 military issue .45s. It isn't one of the supercharged models that have been honed, tuned and balanced like a race engine! But, it does the job on feeding rounds in the pipe!"
"These magazines fit my Government model just fine and released without any issues. I admit that the first few times I used them, my weapon jammed, but after that, they have not jammed or caused me any problems since. You can say that you have to break them in to work fine. For the price, they are a steal and I recommend them."
"Purchased 5 mags as soon as they became available, because I missed the last few rounds. These seem to be brand new. They function great and have had no problems at all. Will definitely buy more when they become available again."
"These mags are the least expensive I could find. I ordered five. They where shipped quickly and arrived within three business days of me placing my order. The fit and finish on these mags are acceptable, and they have all fed in my 1911. They are not as smooth as some of the more expensive magazines, but they would work perfectly at the range. I have yet to put 500 rounds through each magazine, which is my test for betting my life on them, but I believe they will stand up to the test for what I have seen thus far."

"I bought these 12/29/2011 and they work great. I use them in my American Classic II and I have never had a problem. They feed great. I use the cheap TulAmmo as well, which is perfect and has worked flawlessly. They slide in and out nicely."
"I bought 2 of these mags to use at the range. Finally had time to go about a month after the purchase. I can't even chamber a round. It was a struggle to unload them even."
