Metal Form MAgs

Are they a good M-1911 A-1 mag?
What if the Mystery Babalon described in Revelation, which is destroyed by the nations of the North, is actually America?

The biggest problem with religion is those who claim to know Jesus, then turn around and deny Him with their lifestyle. That is what a unbelieving world, simply finds unbelievable.

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.

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.
You may find me dead in a ditch one day, on my knees, but I will be up to my waist in spent rifle brass.

It ain't the firearms they are wanting to be rid of, its you!

They make genuine Colt 1911 mags. Marked with a Colt logo and an M stamp. Got a few, good stuff.
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

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.

Most people will give up freedoms for the perception of safety until they are no longer free or safe.

Believe it or not, but the 7 rd 1911 mags that SARCO claims to be making in house are pretty good. I compared them to my COLT OEM mags and I can't find a significant difference.
I have 7 1911s (3 Colts 3 Springfields 1 FMAP Sistema) and all of them run fine on my SARCO mags.

ETA: I have shot factory and reloaded ammo with LSWC, FMJ Ball, and JHP
