NRA Gun Gear of the Week: 10-Round Magazines For 1911s

posted on March 11, 2018

When sizing the 1911 up against the popular polymer-frame, striker-fired semi-automatics of the day, the 1911 earns top marks in many categories, including for its trigger, its handling characteristics and its ergonomic grip and control placement. When it comes to capacity, though, the old warrior definitely trails behind double-stack designs. Still, the 1911 remains a top choice of competitive shooters, some elite military and law enforcement units, and many personal-defense practitioners. And those who stick with “Old Slabsides” have found extended 10-round magazines to be a reliable means for closing the capacity gap. In this week's NRA Gun Gear of the Week video, American Rifleman’s Joe Kurtenbach takes a look at offerings from Mec-Gar, Chip McCormick Custom and Wilson Combat.
