So, what are your go to mags? I'm in the market (in particular officer size mags). My Dan Wesson came with Check-mate mags, but I'll probably get something else.

That's what I'm leaning towards, just they're out of stock a lot of places I look. I haven't heard much about Nightforce mags, but I'm assuming they should be good? Midway has those in stock last I checked.

I had a Dan Wesson also and back when I bought mine I believe that it came with Dan Wesson branded Chip McCormacks. I picked up some Wilson's and never even used the ones that came with it. Everyone I asked had nothing but good things to say about them.

I've had the best luck with Colt 8 round stainless mags. I've had the Wilsons and Chips nose dive with some ammo. The Colts always work and are way less than the others.

Never looked up STI mags. Didn't know they made them actually.

I will use the mags that came with it at the range this coming week, and I'll see how they run, but I'll probably pick up some Wilson's here soon

I'm a pretty big fan of Wilson's, but I've also never has a lick of trouble from the CMC Shooting Star mags I've got.

I will tell the mags that I've had the most trouble with are the OEM mags from Springfield Armory. Utter garbage.

Chip McCormick's shooting stars, Power mags, and Power+ have worked great for me, including several 10-round Power mags.

Colts stainless 8 rounders have been great.

OEM Dan Wessons have been great.

ATIs have had no problems.

Actually the only troubles I've had were with 10-round Metalform mags.
