I bought these mags because I plan on getting a 1911, once I graduate, and I heard that checkmate mags are shipped with a number of popular models. So I bought 5 of them because for the price there really isn't anything I could complain about. The mags came in 3 days after I ordered them, so shipping was good. They load easily, but they do have the issue where the round tends to dip as it exits the mag, but that isn't too much of an issue for most 1911s, and I could just swap out the follower and springs to fix the issue. The main issue that I had with the order was that all of the mags had some rust on them, and there was nothing on the page that said if these were used or not, so I was kind thrown off by that. I ended up taking them apart and wiping them down with some oil, which got ride of the rust, but I will have to get something that will allow me to polish these mags to a shine and also get rid of some of the scratches that are on the mag. Overall, I feel that the purchase still deserves a five star rating because they are still excellent magazines, especially for the price, but on top of that they don't have many issues other than some cosmetic ones.
