      Angry Wilson mags for CDP II

      Has anybody out there had problems with the Wilson mags not seating properly? My gun is the kimber Ultra CDP II in .45 ACP. I have been back and forth with Wilson to get magazines that will fit, but i really have to give them a whack to get them to lock in. The guy at Wilson suggested a dremel tool and file off part of the foot on the bottom because it will not go up into the gun far enough to seat. The mags I currently have are the 47OXC 7 rnd low profile magazines. Any suggestions??????

      Yes. I had the CDPII Pro for a year or so. I couldn’t seat an 8 round mag while the slide was locked. I had to load 7. I don’t think it’s the mag, this happened with Chip McCormick mags as well.
      Dump the Kimber. I sent mine back to NY three times to get it “fixed”. On the third time they replaced the slide, it still wouldn’t function for spit.

      Well I don't know about Wilson or CMC mags but the ones I got from Kimber work just fine. Plus we tried some Mec-Gar's in it at the range and they worked fine. We have the Ultra CDP II .45cal. We only have about 200rds through it now so that's no real test.

      I have not had a problem with my Kimber 7 round full length mags or my Wilson 8 round mags.

      Cool

      I have been seriously considering dumping the Kimber and getting a Dan Wesson CBOB. I have heard people rave about them with very few issues and great customer service. Old Padawan, what did you replace your Kimber with??

      I had a Colt Combat Commander (4 ¼”) when I purchased the Kimber. I had thought of getting some custom work done on the Colt prior to purchasing the Kimber. I changed my mind and invested the $1000.00 on a second gun. I liked the Kimber quite a bit. I shot it very well, and after a year I was slick and fast at clearing it. I eventually sold it (with full disclosure) and purchased a G27 and G23. I eventually sold the 27 and carry the 23 on a daily basis.
      I eventually had my Colt customized.

      With the possible exception of the two tone finish, all modifications were made to make it a better carry gun. It cost more than the Kimber, but it runs.

      It does? Why does everyone at Galco call it a single-shot, then?

      They call ALL my guns that including the G23. It is a well earned reputation mostly comming from the Kimber.
