OUR SUPPLIER HAS GONE TO EXTENSIVE LENGTHS TO DEVELOP A SUPERIOR 1911 .45 MAGAZINE!!
We are very pleased with these *NEW* magazines.
These are the results of over a year of product development.
Listed here are the quality features of this new magazine:
Produced on a computer controlled high speed link press.
This provides a stable platform for progressive dies & uniformity.
Body tooling has 6 stages & follower tooling has 16 stages.
This assures an accurate & repeatable process with less metal stress, when fewer, less radical bends are made.
Latest technology parallel feed lip design for proper timed release of cartridge.
Special for semi wad cutters, although per technical feedback semi wad cutters may require additional timing.
Welding is done on a Yasakawa computer controlled robotic arm argon welder.
Unlike some .45 magazines you can't see the seam weld on the back.
In house quality control gages to national standard are used for checking every stage of the production.
QC inspection involves a 2/5D video measuring machine enabling checking of every specification & keeps the record in memory.
Springs are tested to 20,000 cycles.
Dimple designed as a mag catch override for easier mag insertion.
Latest rounded follower design.
Magazines are processed in a hot bath of sodium hydroxide, nitrates, & nitrites at 141º centigrade - This converts the surface to magnetite.
All process done under specification of MIL-DTL-13924 & ASTM-D769 & ISO-11408.
The tube is carburized (case hardened) by nitriding (heat treated in a nitrogen atmosphere).
This retains a tough core (ductility, flexibility, springiness & resistance
to stress fractures) while producing a 46-48 HRC surface hardiness, creating scuff resistance, fatigue & corrosion resistance.
Most important, it eliminates any chance for deformation of the front of the mag from cartridge inertia.
For use in all Govt & Commercial 1911 pistols 1911, 1911A1 - Govt Series 70, Series 80, commander, Essex, Rock Island, etc. - Also the many, many, many aftermarket 1911s.
These magazines are new from the factory & clean/dry, they may require the application of a few drops of your favorite gun oil where the follower meets the back/inside of the magazine body.
This is half the price of most reasonable .45 magazines!
