    ETM Magazines

    Has anybody tried the new ETM magazines? I use to be a 100% 47D guy, but over the last year I have been picking up more and more of the Chip McCormick Extra Power magazines. I see that Wilson has finally come out with a 10 round 9mm magazine in the ETM series, but I have been well pleased with the Tripp Research magazines I have, but I'm always willing to upgrade. Anyway, I would love to hear first hand range reports.
    This is my 1911. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I will listen to the reports too. Probably have enough 47Ds, Tripp Rs, & 10rd Wilsons to last me the rest of my life on this earth but will consider the info good education.

    I bought a new ETM mag to try. My Kimber didn't like it, I guess. Had a couple of FTF's out of four uses. No problems with 47D or Tripp or Checkmate. (all 8-rounders) May just be my gun, though.

    I am stickin w/ the 47Ds. I got the Trip in a trade that it came w/ the gun. It works good so I use it.
    At my age I probably have enough 47Ds here to leave a few unused to my son when I die.

    Wilson ETM mags

    I have four of the Wilson Combat ETM magazines, I like the magazine. They work in Wilson CQB, Wilson Combat Classic, Nighthawk GRP and Ed Brown Special Forces.

    The only time I ever have problems is when the magazines get dirty, quick clean up and they run like new.


    I know some people think the base pad is to wide for concealed carry, I do not have any issue with the base pad.

    I am not throwing away my 47D magazines.

    I used the magazines at a Lewis Awerbuck class for two days, dropped them on a concrete floor, one base pad came partially off in two days, slide pad back on and no problem.

    I have 2 of the ETMs, work fine in my S/A SS Champion Loaded and my Mitchell Gold Series 95. Don't care for the wide base pad, rubs on the love handles, so I carry 1 in the gun and carry 47Ds for spares.

    ETM's a quality magazines but then again so are the 47Ds. I've used both in everything from a Kimber, Colt, Wilson and Volkmann; never an issue.

    I actually sold some of my 47Ds to fund some ETMs, the only thing I like better is that I get smoother reloads if the slide is forward. They're a little cheaper than the Cobra Mags IIRC and more vendors carry them.

    The mags run fine in my Les Baer TRS, I haven't tried them in my other 1911s yet.
