Wilson Combat Mags - how to identify and find exact match? Empty Wilson Combat Mags - how to identify and find exact match?

Post by Aprilian 2/14/2017, 5:23 am

I had problems with case damage (I made a post over in Ammo) and found the extra mags I had purchased were not an exact match and they don't have the same shape feed lips.   
The mags I am trying to match are Wilson Combat that came with a used Les Baer Wad gun.   

the one I am trying to match is on the bottom here and you can see the lip flare difference

the original is on the left below and you can see more of the difference in how much less material the original has.   I looked and it did not look like someone had modified it

Does anyone recognize the version of Mag I am trying to match?  Any idea where to purchase a few more?

This isn't exactly going to answer your question. 
I also recently got a used Les Baer Wadgun.  The Les Baer magazine had regular fail-to-fires.  I picked up 2 Ed Brown Magazines, simply because the on-line reviews were good.   They have been flawless for a couple hundred rounds now.
The biggest difference I noticed was a stiffer spring in the Ed Brown mags.

Bottom mag has the feed lips bent outward.. both are bullseye type feed lips.

I'd suggest you find a set of hybrid feed lip mags such as metalforms..  do a Google search for a 1911 magazine feed lips and you will find examples of the three styles
