SARCO HAS GONE TO EXTENSIVE LENGTHS TO DEVELOP A SUPERIOR 1911 .45 MAGAZINE
We have sold probably 150,000 of our price busters, but we decided we need a new & better 1911 mag & we are very pleased with our new program. We have tested our 1st production run and are ready to roll. These are the results of over a year of product development.
Please check the quality features of our 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 feed back semi wad cutters may require additional timing.
• Welding is done on a Yasakawa computer controlled robotic arm argon welder. Unlike some .45 mags 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
• Mags 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 Gov’t & Commercial 1911 pistols 1911, 1911A1 - Gov’t Series 70, Series 80, commander, Essex, Rock Island, etc. - Also the many, many, many aftermarket 1911’s.
This is half the price of most reasonable .45 mags!

Fed well. Did not hold slide open after last round.
After having bought a couple of these for my Delisle build, they work great it in. The last round is very hard to load, but being new mags, I half expect that. I'm going to leave them loaded a while and that should loosen the spring up some I think. Finish isn't as smooth as the blued mags that I already owned so not sure how they'd function in a 1911. But for what I'm using them in, I'll probably get a couple more next payday.
Four stars because I have not shot them yet but they fit the gun ok.
They seem to be very good. Only shot 2 magazines of ammo, no problem, and very strong springs.
All 12 function perfect
All in all they are fine but being new they are hard to load due to the top is very tight against the sides of the mag. I'm sure with wear that will change so I'll go with 4 stars but I would not hesitate to buy more.
all fit my 1911 but I have not fired the gun yet to be sure the ammo feeds properly
Magazines work great in my tisas 1911 drops free with full and empty but they do not drop free in my uncles rock island 1911 spring is gritty but a little cleaning helps
Nice, well built magazines, fit is perfect in my Taurus 1911...
They feed great, will be ordering more soon.
