    10 round magazine

    Hello,
    I have had my Kimber compact ultra ll for several years.I just always bought the 7 rd mags. Well so I decided that I want a 10 round mag. But those seem hard to find. It seems that you can only buy them from Kimber. Why is that? Or is there another MFG out there that makes them with extended grips? Thanks

    The Chip McCormick Power 10's fit and function in my Ultra Carry II, but they stick out a country mile

    I'd just buy more 7rd mags .. the gun's a nice one designed for it .. swapping out a mag should take about 1/4 - 1/2 sec.

    I've lots of experience with both the Wilson and the Chip McCormick 10-round 1911 .45 magazines. Both work extremely well.

    Where are you seeing that Kimber has them with an extended grip? Or even specifically designed for the Ultra compacts?

    Good question I was at sportsman's warehouse and the little gal behind the counter said I can buy them from Kimberly she they were called something plus. So I was going to call them and see what they say I will do that tomorrow and post a reply on this thread

    FWIW, just going off appearance, it looks like the Kimber magazines might be rebadged Chip McCormick mags. You know Kimber isn't making them, and that's probably a good thing. I say that as a man that carries a Kimber 1911 everyday.

    Not sure if its still the case, but the patent numbers on the Kimber and the standard CMC 7 rounders used to be the same. I've relegated all my pack in mags to the emergency stash - I'm much more comfortable with CMC's bigger basepads.
