Metal Form MAgs

Are they a good M-1911 A-1 mag?

I've only got a couple, they worked in my pistols without issue.

I try and run all the old military contract mags I can get my hands on, never had any issue with them ever.
The ones with the contract numbers/letters all over the base plate.

They make genuine Colt 1911 mags. Marked with a Colt logo and an M stamp. Got a few, good stuff.

Metal Form has been providing OEM magazines to Colt for a number of decades. I have several that I bought in the early 1970's for my Colt Gold Cup NM .45 and to this day they still work just fine.

I have other MF made Colt magazines in .38 Super, 9mm Luger, 10mm Auto, and .22 LR. All high quality and trouble free.

And so it goes.

Mine work as well as my Chip McCormick 8rd mags in my Sprinfield full sized. My old Colt Commander only liked Metalform or contract 7 rd mags.
