    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:biggrin:. Anyway, I would love to hear first hand range reports.:bazooka:

    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.

    I have 10 of them, ordered them all at once. I like them a lot. So far, they seem to work just fine. I'll probably order 10 more as soon as I can.

    How do these work in a gun with an extended magwell installed? Are they long enough to seat properly? Does the magwell interfere with the wider base pad? Pics would be great. Thanks in advance for any responses.

    I have two of the ETM mags and have used them in my KImber Eclipse Custom II and other Kimbers I own with zero problems.

    I've had no real problems seating the mags in a gun with a Smith&Alexander mag well installed.

    You know it's funny. Not sure about y'all but I have 1911's that only like Chip McCormick Power mags. I have 1911's that will only work with a Wilson 47D and then some only work consistently with the ETM. I would like to see someone make a flat base 8 round mag for our Bobtail pistols. I have a new Guncrafter 45 ACP commander size bobtail and it works great with any mag but for concealment, I'd like the flush bases.
