You may know ProMag as an aftermarket magazine manufacturer that makes hard-to-find magazines for unique and rare guns. But they’re also an affordable source for replacement or backup magazines for many popular platforms, including the classic 1911. Let’s talk about mags for your government-sized 1911. Whether you need standard-capacity 7-round mags or higher capacity mags at 8, 10, or even 15 rounds, ProMag makes ’em — all for under $25.
They’re available in Blued Steel and Nickel-Plated Steel, which ProMag says offers reduced friction and smoother function. Other features include wide-cut witness holes, ultra-tough DuPont Zytel polymer followers and baseplates, and heat-treated Chrome-silicon wire springs.
Made in the U.S.A., each and every ProMag magazine is backed by their special lifetime guarantee.
Per the ProMag website: “…our products are able to withstand years of constant use and still be able to perform without the slightest hint of difficulty. Each and every step of the assembly process is checked and double checked in order to maintain the same consistent level of quality. We’re so sure of how good our magazines are, we’ve warrantied them for as long as you own them. This lifetime warranty is your assurance that the quality was built in before our name went on the products.”
That means if you ever have any issue with your purchase—for as long as you own it—you can simply return the magazine and receive a new one in the mail.

This one comes with a few tips and comments from our shoppers. Gary A. says, “Buy a mag loader to ease loading the last several rounds…”
Michael M. comments, “One unexpected positive thing is that the extra weight in the mag really helps balance the firearm in the hand.”
And Chuck R. says, “There are a lot of 10 round mags out there that cost twice as much and perform the same.”
These mags have some good comments too.
Cameron C. says, “I put 100 rounds through this magazine straight out of the box. There were no malfunctions and it makes my 1911 look cool. 5/5”
Christopher L.: “I have used these a few times, putting about 200 rounds through them so far. They work great and are a few bucks cheaper than the Kimber brand. I am pleased and would purchase again.”
Michael P. These are great Mags, I have fired them in 3 different Manufactures 1911 45,s and they worked flawlessly, they lock to rear on empty and after 200 rounds no failure to feeds. Would I buy again – you bet!
Brian M. Comments, “Ran good in every 1911 I have, no problems or failures, only thing is on extended mag wells will need to trim the plastic spacer on bottom of mag to get it to lock in all the way, but is nothing to do with the quality of function, which is great!”
Ok, how about some 15-round 1911 fun? Here ya go!
Jacob S. says, “Everyone that shoots alot needs these extended mags, looks mean, works better.”
Andrew G. says, “The mags are hilariously long, but they cycle great and attach snuggly, I’m very happy with my purchase.”
