Best 9mm 1911 Magazine?

I am conttemplating a 1911 in 9mm for IDPA Competition (ESP Division), probably an STI Trojan. Who makes the best 1911 9mm magazine (single stack)? I am thinking Metalform but am looking for suggestions. The Search function did not turn up much info.

I purchased ten metalforms directly from metalform with the base pad included and they worked right out of the box with no tweaking or adjusting.

Andy: What kind of Metalforms were they, the ones with the welded base plates or the removable type?

Welded baseplates. Didn't see any need for the removable.

Metalform mags. And be sure to get stainless ones . That way you can adjust the followers if need be. The followers on the blue mags just snapped when I tried to adjust them.

With all due respect to Andy J, please consider, mag retention rules aside, you will invariably want to clean your magazines regularly, and removable base plates will assist you in that regard. No reason not to have the removable base for IDPA, IMHO.

1911 9mm magazine

The best 9 mm 1911 magazine is a Wilson or the new Novak magazine in 45 acp. Of course you'll have to get a pistola to fit the magazine. Guess a nine is okay unless the person you're shooting has a t-shirt on.
