They are your mags......whose to say you can't dremel them to enhance "feeding" to your liking or take a sledge hammer to them to tune them to a tight trigger bow.....; )
I did not try them in the gun. Having to use such force to push them off the mag was enough for me. So I got out ol BUBBADREMEL today and buzzed them off.

Thanks from High Hat

Was your BUBBATHUMB pushing the round towards the open end?....; )

Maybe you should have ground the lips down first.......; )

If it works and you are happy that's all that matters.

I'm not one to talk......I was a Ordie....trained to fix anything weapons wise with a hammer and case of beer.....

Yeah believe it or not it was the open end I was trying to push them thru...

I thought at first about the feed lips but that's when I noticed the goofy shaped button on the follower. They aint there no more..

I've never seen so many people get worked up over someone else tweeking a cheap 1911 mag.... There everywhere and if it worked, well then where is the foul? If it didn't work, followers are cheap too replace.

Get over it everyone.

Thanks from High Hat, XUSNORDIE and WaM14gunner

Phil, Please don't confuse explaining that the magazines aren't really "wrong" with giving a care what he does with them. Personally, I place little value on these magazines. Just my two cents worth.

Well you took 4 posts to "explain" that point. I get it already, the mags are correct. The little half round button still blows chunks though..
