Wilson magazine question

Post by lablover on 5/11/2018, 6:02 pm

So, my Son served several tours is Afghanistan with the Marine Corps MARSOC and when he returned home after getting out hands me a bag and says here Dad, enjoy.  In the bag were a few DOZEN of Wilson stainless combat mag.  They seem to be the 7 and 8 round variants with what seems like a domed type follower.

He told me he never had any failures with any of them and they served him well.

I’m curious in the bullseye game if these are something I could use.  I will test for myself but like mentioned I’m curious.  I have to say there is something appealing about using these real life combat proven mags.  He mentioned with MARSOC they could use what they wanted as a side arm so he had a pretty tricked out 1911. Laughing 

As a former Marine myself I find these being the ultimate catch of the day!

Glad your son made it back, I am sure the Wilson mags would work fine for bullseye shooting.  Try them out in your pistol.  Good luck.

I have swapped all my flat followers for Clark rounded followers and  Wolff springs.

Ditto, I used Gil Hebbard followers and 6lb wolfs.

I’ll have to go look to see what those followers look like.  I’d be curious on what these Wilson springs are

Why is a round follower better for Bullseye than a flat follower?

It presents a SWC bullet to the chamber at a better angle for feed and function. Flat seem to work best with RN bullets. It is all about the fifth bullet of course.

Thanks; one more thing to add to my list of "stuff I didn't know".  We could create a list of these things, for others who don't.  Maybe I'll do that later today.
