I have old Wilson .45 magazines from the late 80's and they still work fine (never had a plastic follower wear out). Just converted them to 8 rounders. So don't forget as an added bonus, they can be upgraded, completely disassembled for cleaning and altered with different size bumper pads. Oh, by the way, they stand behind their products with service and/or replacement.

I can't go across the board on any brand

I picked up 2 Wilson brand 10 round small caliber from Wayne as he (Mossyrock) recently discussed ex-thread for use in a 9x23. My next purchase will be to try another brand - for that combination. I'd be more than eager to buy nothing but Wilson cheap for the .45.

I'd say there is enough potential difference to mean best brand has to be narrowed a little bit. A given brand may be best across the board but currently I don't see that.

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.
Pretty much my own experience with Wilson mags. They are otherwise perfect. So far, I've had great results with the CMC Powermags.

I've used a wilson 7 rd mag for over a year now, as an experiment I haven't cleaned it that much (once or twice) and it continues to work very, very well. Wilson all the way.
