Magazines, which brand is considered the best?

Just wondering if any one particular brand is considered the best.
I ordered a Valtro from John J. late July last year and I guess I should get it sometime this year . Since it appears the only negitive things voiced were the poor quality of the magazines, I want to secure better ones asap.
Thanks for the help.

I REALLY like the Wilson mags. Chip McCormick Power Mags are good too, but I don't like the other CMC mags.

Wilson mags work fine in all my 1911s, and the Power Mags work in MOST of them.

I've had equally good luck with Wilsons and Metalforms and would recommend either. Curiously though, it seems that there are a significant number of people who claim they have had problems with Wilsons.

My favorites are Metalforms with the round metal follower and welded bottom. I also like CMC powermags and have had success with Wilson and Baers however I really prefer a metal follower over a plastic follower.

I would certainly agree with those voting for the Wilsons (7 rounders are much better) and the Power Mags. Also look at Novak's new magazines - the ones that I have seem to be very well-made, durable, and have a metal follower.

Yes I find that odd also. They are the most suggested mag by other people yet they are the most complained about. I stopped using them after one of the plastic followers wore out on me and wouldn't lock the slide back. I use the round follower Metalforms with welded bases now. No more plastic for me.

Wilson followers

The good news is that when their plastic followers wear out Wilson will send u free replacements. I also use the Wilson follower/spring replacement kits available for around $5. I've replaced SA, GI & CMC innards with these kits, and they work great.
